When it’s time to list your home, you probably have two main questions in mind for your real estate agent. The first is how much can I get for my home? The second is how much commission do you take? Obviously, you want to get the most money in return for your investment. 


Many sellers hire the very first agent they meet and this isn’t necessarily the right process. Selling a home is a huge undertaking. As a seller, you’ll want to dig a bit deeper in order to find the agent who is right for you.


What Experience Do You Have?


It sounds like such an obvious question, but many sellers fail to ask their real estate agents what kind of experience they have. Homes are very expensive business transactions. You want someone who has some experience under their belt to help you get the most bang for your buck in the sale of your home. While there’s no amount of experience that’s “required,” your agent should have some experience selling homes. The ability of an agent to handle deals is very important. 


How Will You Market My Home?


You can’t really sell anything without some kind of marketing efforts. There are many different ways to market a home including direct mailing, online advertising and sending the property to the MLS for wide search availability. It’s important that your real estate agent knows how to market a home. 


How Will We Communicate


This is an important question. You don’t want to hire a real estate agent just to find that they are often unavailable and leaving you wondering what’s happening in the sale of your home. In this age, it’s important to remember how many different ways that we can communicate. There’s e-mail, texting and of course old fashioned phone calling. You want to make sure that the agent you choose to help you sell your home will be open to communicating in the ways that are most convenient for you. 


Will You Be Representing Both Sides Of The Transaction?


Agents have the ability to represent both the buyer and the seller if the buyer doesn’t have their own agent to represent them. This is normal and expected especially in special cases. Dual agency is possible and it is legal. However, sometimes you may want someone who is purely “on your side.” If an agent is getting commission from both transactions, you may think it’s hard for them to be working for both the buyer and the seller without trying too hard to make a deal. You don’t want your best interest to be compromised when you’re selling a home.

Home sellers sometimes struggle to stir up interest in their residences. Fortunately, there are lots of things you can do to help your residence capture buyers' attention, such as:

1. Craft an Engaging Home Listing

A home listing should engage and inform buyers. Otherwise, an ineffective listing may make it tough for a seller to effectively promote his or her residence to the right groups of buyers.

To craft an effective home listing, it is important to consider the buyer's perspective. Think about why you purchased your home in the first place, and you may be able to identify unique property features that you can highlight in your listing.

Also, ensure your home listing is clear, concise and easy to understand. You may want to incorporate high-resolution images of your home into your listing as well.

2. Boost Your Home's Curb Appeal

As a home seller, it is crucial to upgrade your house's curb appeal. Because if your home makes a positive first impression on buyers, you could speed up the property selling journey.

To bolster your house's curb appeal, you should mow the lawn, trim the hedges and perform other lawn care tasks. You may want to repair or replace any cracked or damaged home siding, too.

For those who want extra help with home exterior upgrades, you can always hire local contractors. In fact, these professionals will streamline the process of upgrading your house's curb appeal.

3. Eliminate Clutter

If your home is loaded with a wide array of personal belongings, you may want to remove these items. That way, you can help buyers envision what life may be like if they purchase your house. You also can show off the full size of your residence during open house events and home showings.

Cutting down on clutter can be simple. If there are items you no longer need, you can donate them to a local charity, sell them at a yard sale or online or give them to family members or friends. Conversely, if there are items that are broken or damaged, you can safely dispose of them.

As you get set to promote your residence to buyers, it often helps to have an expert real estate agent at your disposal. A real estate agent understands the ins and outs of the property selling journey. Therefore, he or she can help you achieve your desired home selling results as quickly as possible.

If you are committed to getting the best price for your residence, for example, a real estate agent will help you do just that. Or, if you are unsure about how to price your home, a real estate agent is happy to provide pricing recommendations. Perhaps best of all, if you ever have questions during the home selling journey, a real estate agent can respond to them.

Want to generate interest in your home? Use the aforementioned tips, and you can boost the likelihood that your house will capture buyers' attention.
