I am looking to sell my home — what questions should I be asking the real estate agent I am considering appointing?

A homeowner needs to feel comfortable that the agent they are appointing will do the best job for them and their property.

Enquire into the agent's history of successful sales in that area and gain an understanding of what marketing initiatives are going to be put in place to sell your home. It is important to ask the real estate agent for their broker's number and a profile on the company they work for.

An agreeable selling price needs to be established along with the motivation for the sale of the property and timeline that needs to be observed. Ensure you appointed agency outlines all the costs associated with selling and their obligation and commitment to you as the property owner.
