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.
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
to recommend. You can also visit one of your local real estate offices;
it’s guaranteed they’ll know your area.
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.
