Questions to Ask an Agent When Selling Your Hudson Valley Home

Are you thinking of selling your Hudson Valley home? Let's go over some questions you should ask an agent when interviewing them to list your house. Selling or buying a home is usually one of the largest transactions anyone will make in their lives, and you want to make sure yours is in the right hands.

I'm going to break these down into some basic questions you should ask as well as some more complicated questions that not everyone knows you should ask when selling your home.

The basics:

  • How long have you been a full time residential agent?

  • What sets you apart from other agents in the area?

  • Do you typically sell homes in this area and price range?

  • How many clients have you represented in the last year?

  • What are some challenges you think we will face in selling this house?

More in depth:

  • How will you keep me updated through the process?

  • What marketing tactics will work and won't work for my house specifically?

  • How will you determine the price of my house and what if we disagree?

  • What would you suggest I do to prepare my home for the market?

  • What makes a good listing agent?

  • What are some common mistakes agents make when listing a house and how do you avoid those?

  • What is the current state of the market in my area and how long should I expect to be on the market before finding a buyer?

There you go! If you ask these questions to your agent when interviewing to sell your home, you should receive enough information to make the right decision. Keep in mind, there are no "right" answers to these questions per se, each agent has their own strategies and personalities, and it's up to you as a homeowner to decide which fits best with your goals of selling.
