Top 3 Questions To Ask Your Real Estate Agent

Buying or selling your home is one of the largest transactions you are likely to experience in your life, and you want to be sure that you have the right person to help you through the process.

At Royal City Realty, we know that there are some very important questions to ask your prospective real estate agent to ensure that you are getting the right support and value from them as a REALTOR®. We asked our experts to put together a list of key questions to help you find the best person to help you on your journey.

Top 3 Questions To Ask Your Real Estate Agent

1. How long have you worked as a full-time real estate agent?

The world of real estate is constantly evolving with changes in regulations, valuation processes, financing, and the marketplace. You want to be sure that your REALTOR® is up-to-date on the latest changes, trends, and industry-related news — and only a full-time real estate agent will be able to provide that vital support.

2. How many other clients are you working with right now and do you have a support team available to help?

You want to be sure that your REALTOR® will have the necessary time to meet with you, take your calls, answer your questions, and offer you the overall support you need.

When it comes to buying or selling a home, the last thing you want is to be passed off to different real estate agents at the brokerage. You want to be sure that your REALTOR® is focused on you and will be there for you when you need them.

Having a support team available, to help your agent get the job done, is vital. Choosing a brokerage with a support team means that there will always be someone to answer your call, look after the documentation, set up your viewings, and more.

3. How many homes have you helped people buy and sell in the last year?

Asking this question isn’t about your real estate agent bragging about their numbers, it’s about their success rate. Perhaps they showed 100 houses, but only sold five, or maybe they helped 200 families buy homes in the last 10 months.

You want to be sure that your REALTOR® is successfully closing transactions, so that you can feel confident that will get the results you want.
