QUESTIONNAIRE DETERMINES REAL ESTATE AGENT SUITABILITY WHEN SELLING
Knowing what questions to ask real estate agents when they appraise your property is challenging, so when Agent Finder NZ refers you a shortlist of vetted real estate agents, the questionnaire comes with it - all free.
You will know exactly what questions to ask, be more in control and confident and most especially when you're prepared to discuss real estate commission and fees.
Why would you not interview a real estate agent using a proven list of questions, when they are proposing to sell your biggest financial asset?
CONSEQUENCES OF NOT ASKING IMPORTANT QUESTIONS
Often to their demise, home sellers choose a real estate agent based on old habits like word of mouth or letterbox flyers, without really knowing much about an agent's competence to negotiate an optimum sale price, or their conduct.
Many believe that because they pay so much in fees and commission, that they just hand everything over to the agent. While you should be able to do this, taking your eye off the ball comes with risk and is a topic often regretted.
Selling a house can be daunting so perhaps they do this simply, because it's quicker or easier. But it is at this very point, the fate of your property sale will be determined.
