Guidelines to Selling a Home in Tampa | How To Pick The Right Agent4U

  • Test the listing agent you're contemplating on listing your house with. Call the agent, email the agent. See how responsive he/she is on returning your calls / emails. This is the person who will be representing you and your property. His/her response time is crucial to making or breaking a deal. This is the person who the buyers and buyers agents will call to see your house. Request CMA (comparable market analisys) for your property and see how quickly you will get a response.

  • Inquire about what kind of marketing techniques they will be using to sell your house. Inquire about the effectivity of these techniques. Remember, you may be charged for some of these marketing materials whether they work or they don't.

  • Most Buyers start their search online. Does Realtor have a website? How visible it in Google, Bing and other search engines? Would Buyer be able to find it by typing your community name, or area?
  • Check to see how long their listings stayed on the market. Request a preview of the past and current listings they have had on the MLS. Review how well it's written, how detailed the information they put in, read to see how well they wrote the remarks and specially the driving directions on each listing, see how well the property was photographed, how many photos were used and how photogenic the property looked.
  • Ask for at least 3 references: ask how often they got a feedback while their properties were on the market.

  • Rates: don't just sign with the cheapest agent you can find. Focus on the results not the price. The purpose of all this is to sell your house. It doesn't do you any good if your property will just sit for 6 months. It will cost you more in the end. Do your homework and do the math. Most likely, another agent (a buyers agent) will be involved in the sale of your house. Inquire about the co-broke structure (how much of the total commission will be offered to buyer's agent). Hint: In a slow market you need to maximize the incentive for a buyer's agent (3% or more) to show your property. If the commission is LOW, it may not SHOW.
