When you are ready to place your home on the market, you want to ensure your have the expertise of an experienced realtor. This means that you must know the right questions to ask, to ensure your goals are met. I realize that I may not be the only realtor you interview, so I have compiled a list of questions to help you in your decision making process. By asking me the 4 vital questions below during your home listing appointment, you will walk away knowing that your listing is in good hands.

Question #1 What Is My Listing Price vs. Selling Price Ratio?

Placing your home on the market for $500,000 is one thing, but actually selling a home for the asking price is another. The ability to sell a home for its listing price is what sets a stellar realtor apart from an average realtor. During our home listing appointment we will not only discuss my LP:SP ratio, but also:

·      {C}The percentage of my listings that sell for more than the initial listing price.

·      {C}The percentage of my listings that sell for more than the average industry listing prices.

Question #2 What Are My Listings Average Days On The Market?

Often referred to as the DOM, it is important to understand how quickly your realtor can secure a sale. Even if you do not have a strict deadline you are trying to achieve, you most likely would prefer for your home to sell sooner rather than later. The DOM is also of great importance for individuals who are still living in the home they are selling, as it will affect how long they will have to manage their personal lives around showings.

Question #3 How Many Offers Do My Average Listings Receive?

While any offer is exciting, it is even more exciting to have options. In fact, the more offers you have increases the likelihood of your home selling for higher than your listing price. It also shows how successfully your realtor is at attracting attention to your home. During our home listing appointment we will discuss my average number of offers the homes I sell receive, and how I will generate attention to your listing.

Question #4 What Percentage Of My Homes Close?

Any realtor can list a home on the market, but that does not guarantee it will result in a sale. As a seller you don’t want to ensure you have an agent that is well-versed in developing marketing strategies that lead to a sale.

By asking the questions above you will walk out of our home listing appointment knowledgeable about my industry expertise, and confident in our partnership.
