3 Tips for Choosing the Right Seller Agent

Three tips on how you can choose the right seller agent for you.

When it comes to selling your home, selecting the right real estate agent is important. Your home is likely the largest asset you own, and finding a trustworthy, competent agent can make a difference in your selling experience. Here are three essential tips to consider when hiring an agent to sell your home:

1. Research online. Check their profiles on platforms like Zillow, Realtor.com, and LinkedIn. Look at their reviews, past sales, and professional background. This will give you an idea of their experience, reputation, and whether their business style resonates with you. The goal is to gather as much information as possible to make an informed decision.

“While online research is a great starting point, meeting potential agents face-to-face is highly recommended.”

2. Watch for red flags. An agent with lower production levels than you’re comfortable with may not have the expertise you need. Additionally, beware of agents who seem more focused on their interests rather than yours. Another warning sign is an agent who quickly agrees to lower their commission; they may not be strong negotiators, which could impact your sale price. Ensuring your agent is committed and competent is key to a successful sale.

3. Interview multiple agents. While online research is a great starting point, meeting potential agents face-to-face is highly recommended. Schedule interviews with at least three agents to get a feel for their personality, approach, and professionalism. This will help you assess their communication skills, market knowledge, and how well they understand your needs and goals. The right agent should make you feel confident and comfortable with their ability to sell your home.
