If you do NOT read this report you will almost certainly lose thousands of dollars when you sell your house…
Home sellers don’t know how exactly to spot a good agent
This is understandable when you consider that you will only trade a couple of properties in your lifetime. Your home is probably your biggest asset. So, be cautious whom you choose to sell it; one slip-up from an agent will wipe thousands off your value.
Ask the right questions
Many home sellers ask the incorrect questions when they interview a realtor. They ask questions such as for example “How much do you charge?” or “What’s my house worth?”. While these questions are important, they should only be asked after the agent has told you what they’ll do for you personally and how they’ll allow you to get the best price.
This report can be your guide to hiring an agent. I’m going to demonstrate how to spot and select the best agent to sell your home. After all, I really believe there’s no one easier to sell your home than a highly skilled agent. The problem is that very skilled agents are hard to find.
WARNING! Don’t settle for second best. Too many sellers make the mistake of picking the ‘best of a bad bunch’. You will be better off lacking any agent
Check out your agent
It’s a sad fact, but many people don’t check-out their agent until once they have signed with them – at that time it’s too late. After you sign you’re stuck; you will be locked into a ‘minimum 90 day’ contract.
The questions and information in this report will provide you with the knowledge you need to keep the power when you’re selling a house. After you sign you lose your power.
Agents love to say all of them are different but preliminary research will prove most are exactly the same. It is the ‘cookie cutter’ approach when it comes to selling your home – every property is sold the same way.
What to look for when choosing an agent
In 2006 Neil Jenman (my father) was asked to supply a summary of questions, comments, and hints to greatly help home sellers choose a realtor for a TV show he was hosting. He called his set of questions and comments, GUIDE TO GRILLING AGENTS. During the last few years I have given the guide to many home sellers. This report contains a lot of the questions and comments in his original guide.
What does a good agent look like?
Most agents will be well dressed, promptly, and prepared. But the best real estate agents is definitely the ones who put your interests first. They’ll offer solutions that suit you first, not them.
Agents who ask for money to advertise your home should rarely be hired. old fort bay bahamas In the end, if advertising was the only reason your home sold why do you want a real estate agent?
Questions are the answer

Put your house buyer shoes on. And begin with a mystery shop…
Department stores do it, so why shouldn’t you? Utilize the ‘process of elimination’ to weed out the poor agents. Why bother interviewing a real estate agent who doesn’t bother to return buyer’s calls? Start with a contact. Approximately half of all buyer enquiry arrives via email.
If you distribute 10 emails to 10 local real estate agents, I can almost guarantee that you’ll not receive 10 replies. If only 5 reply, you then have just saved yourself having to interview 5 agents. Include your contact number in your email. Do they call you back? Or do they just email a typical response? A realtor who follows up with a call includes a much better potential for ‘closing a sale’ than an agent who sends a standard reply.
