Find a REALTOR® Who is Right For You

Your REALTOR® who helped you buy your current house is a good start. Sticking with a REALTOR® just makes sense. If they did a good job helping you buy your home, they’re probably the best candidate for helping you sell it. They already know the home inside and out and they know you, so you’ll save time two ways.

Think locally

Jot down the names and numbers of REALTORS® on the “For Sale” signs in your neighbourhood. Maybe your local friends or nearby family have a REALTOR® to recommend. You can also visit one of your local real estate offices; it’s guaranteed they’ll know your area.

Interviewing candidates

Don’t be afraid to ask questions, or screen a few REALTORS® before deciding. Make sure you feel comfortable with them and that they show a genuine interest in helping you. For a list of questions you can ask view the page“10 Questions to Ask when Hiring a REALTOR®”

Should you choose the REALTOR® who suggests the highest asking price for your home?

Ask what method they used to assess your home’s market value. How was your home compared to other homes in your neighbourhood that have been sold recently? Determining the asking price will give you a better understanding of listing price and how it affects the sale of your home.
