The real estate market is hot right now, and in Middle Tennessee, a full scale frenzy is in effect. As a (somewhat predictable) result, new agents are flying out of real estate school to snap up a slice of the rapidly expanding pie. Now, new agents have to cut their teeth somewhere, and to their credit, they do bring fresh enthusiasm to the profession, but what you're looking for isn't necessarily enthusiasm. You want experience. You want an agent who can sell your house quickly, and for the best price. So how do you find someone like that? Here's how.
Ask your friends
First step is obvious. Ask around to see if any of your friends have sold their homes recently and how they've made out on the deal. Those who've produced the best outcomes for people you actually know, it should go without saying, are good candidates.
Look at their listings
Another way to find good agents is to match the homes they're currently selling to the one you're trying to sell. An agent who sells homes like yours is likely to have a pocket full of potential buyers looking for what you're selling.
Listen to them
Lastly, once you've narrowed down your list of potentials, it's vitally important that you interview them. Don't be afraid to ask them tough questions. As a general rule, the agents who have something to offer will talk more business than small talk. Now you know how to choose a real estate agent to suit your needs when selling your home. Of course, once you've chosen an agent, it'll help to call Tristar Title and Escrow to make the closing smooth as possible.
