Looking to sell your home soon? You’re in luck; as of 2021, homes for sale were only staying on the market an average of 33 days. Just a year ago, homes averaged 62 days on the market. Selling, however, is not always that easy. A big task when moving is finding the right real estate agent for your needs.

How do you find someone that fits your budget, brings the perfect clientele in, sells within your time frame, and helps you find your new dream house?

Ensure your experience is a good one by following these tips.

Discover the Expert in Your Area

Do some digging to find an agent that is an expert at selling in your neighborhood. Chat with friends and family who’ve recently sold or bought a home or ask for recommendations on social media.

Be sure they’re knowledgeable about pricing, marketing, competition, and clientele before hiring them.

Get to Know Them

When shopping around, there’s no rule saying you have to select the first agent you find. Talk to them to get a better understanding of how they work and what their selling process is like.

Make sure they understand your goals and priorities, as well as the local market so they can help you list your house at a price that works for you and the current selling environment. Your agent represents you and should protect your best interests.
