Are you planning to sell your Incline Village NV home?
Putting your home up on the market is not an easy decision.
Your Incline Village home may be your biggest investment so far, and along with your emotional attachment to it, can be difficult to let go. When you have to move for career advancement or personal reasons, it is time to put your Incline Village NV home for sale.
To facilitate the selling process, you need the help of a real estate agent. Having professional assistance can make things easier and less stressful for you. REALTORS® like me can also help you get a better deal.
When you have a real estate agent working with you and for you, you can be certain that you have access to all of the current market information and advertising resources. Your agent’s wealth of knowledge, skills, and experience will help you sell your home for the maximum possible profit.
But you have to remember that real estate agents are not all the same. I have seen many home sellers make the mistake of listing with the first real estate agent they meet, without giving much thought to the skills and experience of the agent.
Finding a real estate agent to list with takes more than just relying on appearance and a gut feeling.
Unlike other services you engage in, some legwork and research on your part is necessary to find the best real estate agent.
To better evaluate a real estate agent, you need to ask questions on how she will sell your Incline Village home.
The responses to your questions can help you determine whether you will list with that agent or seek for the assistance of another.
Here are some questions you should be asking your real estate agent.
1. How experienced are you in selling residential homes? It is okay to ask an agent her length of experience in selling homes.
You are looking for an experienced agent who will list your Incline Village home for sale. You also want a real estate agent who is working on their business full time.
2. How many listings have you sold in my neighborhood in the past year?
When selling your home, you need someone who knows the local market and has done a few recent deals in your neighborhood. It’s also best to work with a professional who has sold homes similar to yours.
3. What is your marketing plan to sell my home?
You want someone who can give you a solid marketing plan on how to sell your Incline Village home.
Some tactics experienced real estate agents use include:
- Putting your home on the MLS
- Holding open houses
- Taking professional photos and videos of your home for advertising and printing flyers to draw potential buyers.
Experienced and well-connected REALTORs® like me can find potential buyers through our vast network of buyers and other agents.
4. What online marketing strategy do you employ?
Your real estate agent should have a good online marketing strategy. She should be using social media tools like Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram to create advertisements about your home.
A good REALTOR® should have a strong online presence. Google her name. If she shows up with her website, review sites, blogging sites etc, then you can be confident she will do the same for your property in Incline Village.
5. What are my home’s drawbacks?
You need to know your home’s flaws based on the perspective of someone who has been working in real estate for a long time. The answer you will receive can help you overcome your home’s flaws and sell your property successfully.
A good real estate agent will provide renovating or staging tips, so you can increase your selling price.
6. Can I read and study the documents I need to sign beforehand?
An experienced real estate agent will make available all the documents you need to sign beforehand so you can have sufficient time to read and review it. Included in these documents are the Agency Disclosure, the Listing Agreement and the Seller Disclosures.
Asking these questions to the best Incline Village real estate agent can help sell your Incline Village home successfully.
