Good Real Estate Agent Questions

In a special real estate segment in front of a live audience, Dave gives some good questions to ask a real estate agent when interviewing them to sell your home.

QUESTION: Cathy asks what some good interview questions are for a buyer to ask prospective real estate agents. This is a question that Dave looks forward to answering.

ANSWER: I’d want to know how many properties the agent sold. I want to know what areas of town you specialize in, because some real estate agents might focus on one part of town and be clueless about another. Have them walk through your house and offer some suggestions, and tell them to make blunt suggestions to you to get it ready to sell. If someone can’t sell you on how good they are as a real estate agent, then they can’t sell your house, because they can’t sell. It’s an art form.
