4 Questions To Ask Your Estate Agent

Thu 01 Aug 2019

Selling your house is one of the most significant steps you will take in your life. It is natural for you to feel under pressure, and you should call on the leading local experts for support. There are many estate agents operating in Huddersfield and Milnsbridge, but not all of them can provide you with the service you need.

At ADM Residential, we call on decades’ worth of experience and expertise in the industry. We have also developed a track record we are very proud of. However, you need to feel confident about hiring a professional, and here are four questions to ask your estate agent.

1.      How long do you think it will take to sell my home?

2.      Do you have similar homes on the market right now?

3.      Where will my home be listed?

4.      What is the valuation of my home?

The answers you receive to these four questions provide insight into your estate agent, and what they will do to help you sell your home. You can also ask questions about the cost of service, what you get for your money, and how the agent will communicate with you. These are essential issues, but for picking the estate agent who will sell your home, the stated questions will help you make an informed decision.

How long do you think it will take to sell my home?

While it is impossible to say with any great certainty how long the sales process will take, this is a question all vendors ask. An estate agent should be able to offer guidelines on how long the sales process takes. An experienced estate agent will have sold similar homes in the past, allowing them to make an informed judgment on how long the next sale might take.

Do you have similar homes on the market right now?

It is essential to know what the market is like and to gain insight from a professional who understands the property market. Some people may look at a lot of similar homes being on sale, and determine this is a good thing, as they appear popular in the market. Other observers may have concerns over the level of competition from similar homes, and whether there is enough demand for homes of this nature.

By speaking to a skilled and experienced agent, you can make an informed decision as to how well your home will fare in the local market.

Where will my home be listed?

For buyers to develop an interest in your home, they need to see the property. Therefore, the home must be listed in various places, and in locations that likely buyers will see it. Vendors should ask estate agents where their property will be recorded, and who will see the home.

What is the valuation of my home?

The valuation of your home is essential in the sales process. If the price is too low, you’ll generate interest, but you could lose out on a significant sum of money. If the price is too high, you’ll struggle to create interest in your property.

If you plan on selling your home, contact us to arrange a property valuation. No matter what your next move is, rely on ADM Residential and we’ll be happy to assist you.
