5 Questions You Should Always Ask Your Real Estate Agent
1. How can your experience benefit my real estate transaction?
Bringing a unique edge to the table is just what your agent should have. They should bring something that sets them apart, whether they have recently sold a home nearby yours, or just finished a course on negotiation skills.
2. If you were buying or selling your LA home, what would you look for in an agent?
This is the best way to get an insider view on the industry. What do industry professionals see as an essential asset? How does each agent vary in those priorities?
3. Tell me about a recent work success.
Understanding an agent's most recent win can teach you a lot about their passion to turn your home search or sale into their latest achievement.
4. What are your most effective approaches to marketing a home?
Rather than asking "How will you market my home?", this question will give you a better idea of your agent's thought process. This is a good way to see if your agent is well-versed in newer forms of advertising and networking.
5. Give me the run down of the conditions, commission fees, and agreements.
You can see how each partnership measures up by asking for specifics like these during an interview. Of course, these basics will play a major role in how you choose your LA real estate agent.
