Questions to Ask a Potential Listing Agent

Picking a great real estate listing agent is crucial to success when selling your home. But with so many Realtors in the Omaha marketplace, how do you find the best one for you?
A good place to start is asking these three questions of every potential listing agent.
The Top 3 Questions to Ask:
1. On average, how close are your listing prices to your actual sales prices?
This question is important, because some agents will list your house above market value so they can secure the listing. But if you look back at their averages, you’ll see their actual sales prices are 5 to 10 percent under the listing price.
Our group prides itself that the difference between our listing and actual sales prices is less than 2 percent over the past 12 months. We make it a priority to market our homes at market value.
2. What will you do differently to market my home?
Many agents will just plop a sign in your yard and hope someone stumbles upon it on the multiple listing service (MLS). But you need to know the marketing you are paying for. What does the commission you will pay actually cover?
When you work with us, we provide these outstanding marketing services to ensure your home sells quickly and at the right price:
1.       We have professional photos taken of every property
2.       We host a professional video tour on YouTube
3.       We employ a professional staging company for every property we list
4.       We provide you with a free moving truck
5.       We have 10 full-time agents working hard to sell your property
3. How many homes did you sell last year? This is my favorite question. You want an agent who sells a lot of properties, but what do “a lot of properties” mean in today’s market? Last year, we sold 260 homes in the Omaha market. This year, we are on track to sell 360 homes – nearly a house a day. We are a full-time, full-service real estate group.  We’ll put the most amount of money back in your pocket with the least amount of hassle and time.
