As a seller, ask these questions when you are interviewing potential agents. Their response can inform you on how they would show up during the offer process and negotiations.
- How will you assess the market’s response to my house?
- When and how will you keep me updated?
- How do you plan an offer strategy?
- How will you drive interest when the market slows?
Your agent should be able to help gauge buyer interest levels both qualitatively and quantitatively using the tools that exist and picking up nuances in conversations. Having an agent that dissects this information helps you create leverage by knowing how buyers are behaving. Otherwise, you would be flying blindly during negotiations.
