Questions to Ask a REALTOR® When Listing Your Home

Questions to Ask a REALTOR® When Listing Your Home

If moving is on your mind, you should talk to a REALTOR. An experienced local real estate agent can answer all your questions. But do you know what questions to ask? To help, we've made a list of questions to ask a REALTOR when listing your home.

How should I price my home?

This is a question that no online estimator or Zillow “zestimate” can answer accurately. It is imperative that you speak to an experienced REALTOR for correct pricing. A REALTOR has access to the most current information on the local market and can take into account upgrades and high-end finishes comparable to your recent neighborhood home sales to get you the most accurate price. Expect the REALTOR to share their research and data with you so you can better understand their findings and price suggestions. A quality Realtor should want to review the details with their sellers.

How many sales did you complete last year?

Did you know that the average real estate agent only sells about 6 homes a year? An agent/team that works with a higher volume of clients makes more buyer and seller connections that help sell homes quicker. For the last 7+ years The Boehmer Team has consistently closed over 300 home sales per year. This is why we are the top real estate team in St. Charles County.

What is your marketing plan for my home?

A quality marketing plan should include a variety of strategies to reach other agents as well as consumers searching for homes.  The Boehmer Team's “Maximum Exposure Marketing Plan” encompasses various tools and resources which have proven to be successful in the home selling process. During their listing presentation, The Boehmer Team will thoroughly review the full marketing plan.

How many websites will include information about my home?

Hundreds. The Boehmer Team’s listings are submitted through Maris MLS IDX feed to all local area real estate company websites. In addition, your listings are submitted to the major national websites and promoted through the BHHS Select Properties Relocation Program as well as numerous social media platforms.

Do you have advice for me about the condition of my home?

The Boehmer Team assists home sellers in determining small tweaks or updates that may result in higher net profit from their home sale. We'll share our experience of what buyers are looking for to help you make your home the most valuable in their eyes.

Can you recommend contractors and moving companies?

During our numerous years in the real estate business, we have gathered quality resources that can assist both buyers and sellers in the home sale and moving process. We are full service Realtors, at your service for life.
