Hello,A good listing agent is a partner in your home search, someone with whom you'll be working closely - so spend the time to develop a strong relationship. Discuss with your agent what steps he/she will take to effectively market your home before agreeing to list with their company. It is important that you are comfortable every step of the way so starting off on the right foot is a great way to begin a solid relationship.
First, you should ask about their background. You want to choose an agent with experience listing homes (this is different from selling homes) and a strong knowledge of the local market. A listing agent must be available to other agents who are seeking information on the house and should be prepared to put in the time required to effectively market the property. With the internet becoming more and more crucial to the home marketing effort, you may want to look for a Realtor with a strong understanding of web marketing.Therefore, you should then ask how he/she plans to market your home. An experienced listing agent should be able to effectively coordinate advertising and promotion for your home. Some examples include on-line virtual tours, interactive floor plans, running ads in the local media, holding open houses, and the Mutiple Listing Service.If a Realtor doesn't have the time, interest, or commitment to develop an understanding of your needs, look for one who does. Don't hesitate to ask the agent to suggest any repairs or improvements. While your agent may make some suggestions that are just too expensive or otherwise not feasible, he or she can give you a good idea of what aspects of your home will turn on and off buyers.Good luck and feel free to contact me with any more of your questions.Cheers,Market_AL
