3 Biggest Mistakes Homeowners Make when Interviewing Agents

When it’s time to sell your home in Georgia, you need to know in advance the kind of real estate agent you want to hire.

You want to ask the right questions—the smart questions about all the essential things that matter to you the most.

If you don’t, you could be doing what industry experts call Blind Archery Home Selling, which is a dangerous game.

Here are the 3 biggest mistakes homeowners make when interviewing real estate agents.

1. Relying on Emotion Rather than Logic when Selecting Which Real Estate Agent to Hire

When you have hundreds of thousands of dollars at stake, you want to make sure that you choose the right real estate agent.

Relying on your emotions rather than logic can get you into trouble.

Never choose a real estate agent based on the following criteria:

  • They were kind to you
  • You liked their clothing choice and how they dress
  • Their pleasantries and flattery
  • How they made you feel

You must remember feelings are not facts. And for some slick sales agents, that is all they have to rely on when their track record is poor.

2. Not Making a List of the Most Important Selection Factors when Hiring a Real Estate Agent

It is impossible to know what you want in a real estate agent if you don’t know what you are looking for.

Failing to make a list of important selection criteria before hiring a real estate agent is like taking a walk without a destination.

Make a shortlist of the five most important things you are looking for in the agent you will hire. Get a free real estate agent selection guide that includes a list of 9 different selection factors to consider and weigh them against each other.

3. Failure to Investigate the Real Estate Agent’s Track Record

If you fail to investigate the real estate agent’s track record, you could be at a considerable disadvantage.

The only thing that should matter when you choose an agent to hire is evaluating their success in the industry.

An excellent track record will include the following:

  • The agent sells more homes than other agents
  • They have sold more homes for more money than other agents
  • The agent works with a team instead of flying solo
  • Their reviews are plentiful

While researching a potential real estate agent, if you find that their homes never sell, their houses were tied up for months, or the homes they sold received much less than they should have, this is not the real estate agent you want or need to sell your house fast and for top dollar

Watch out for an under-performing agent, who is worn out, and just wants to get it over with.
