selling real estate kawartha lakesChances are, if you’ve lived in your home for more than a few years, you can likely turn a tidy profit. That’s great news. But sealing the deal requires more than just a handshake. You’ll have to consider if now’s a good time to sell? What’s the best way to get the word out? How do you get top dollar for your property? These are just some of the questions that a REALTOR® can help answer.

3. Find a REALTOR® who is right for you

There are many reasons why a REALTOR® is essential when selling your home, but which REALTOR® is best for you?

Don’t simply go with the first REALTOR® who suggests the highest asking price. Ask around, talk to a few, and you’ll soon find the one that’s right for you.

The REALTOR® who helped you buy your current house is a good start

Sticking with a REALTOR® you know just makes sense. If your REALTOR® did a good job helping you buy your home, he or she is probably a good candidate for helping you sell it.

Think locally

Jot down the names and numbers of REALTORS® on “For Sale” signs.

Ask your local friends or nearby family to recommend a REALTOR®.

Visit one of the local real estate offices who know your area.

Interviewing candidates

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Finding the right REALTOR® is about a partnership – so screen a few before deciding. Make sure you feel comfortable with him or her and that they show a genuine interest in helping you. Here’s a list of questions you can ask.
