You recently decided that the time has come to sell your home. You probably met with several Realtors, asked each a few questions, and then selected a listing agent. Or maybe you already knew someone who sells real estate, so your decision seemed simple.
The fact that your listing agreement recently expired and your home didn’t sell leads us to believe things didn’t work out as you hoped.
Anyone who ever sold a home knows how frustrating and unnerving it is to have your listing expire without a sale. You’re probably thinking you’ve wasted precious time without accomplishing your goal. The idea of going through the process all over again is an upsetting one — and yet, you still need to sell your home.
There are several possible reasons your home didn’t sell — your home’s condition, the price, etc. — but our experience has been that when a home fails to sell, there’s usually some kind of communication problem between the Realtor and the homeowner.
Now more than ever, choosing the right Realtor will make all the difference in the world. But how do you make the right choice? How do you make sure you don’t end up in the same situation again?
Unfortunately, most people don’t know the questions to ask a prospective agent. Nor do they know what answers they should look for.
As Homeowner Advocates who have worked with hundreds of sellers, we’ve found that homeowners who take the time to find the right agent are consistently happier with their home-selling experience than those who don’t. It’s the first and most critical step in selling your property.
