Most Homeowners have absolutely no idea what criteria they should be utilizing when choosing the best real estate agent or REALTOR® (there is a difference) to sell their house. They have no pre-determined questions to be used during an interview and they have no qualifying standards to decide which agents are even qualified to sell their property correctly. Most home sellers admit that they don't know how to choose an agent. These Homeowners are hoping for "promises" from a salesperson that may or may not actually become true. As an example, many uneducated home sellers will simply interview 2 or 3 agents and go with the one that says they can sell it for the most amount of money, with the lowest commission charged. This almost ALWAYS ends in disaster. More on that later.
If you are selling your home, it's one of the most important financial decisions of your entire life. It's crucial to have a pre-determined set of questions and qualifications you can use during the interview to choose the best agent for the job. You certainly don't want to mess up something this big in your life by choosing an agent based on their personality or a low commission. Frankly, if they can't negotiate for themselves, they certainly won't have the ability to negotiate for you. This means you may end up with a very low sale price. And if their sales success percentage is low on the listings that they represent, your home may not sell at all.
