If you are searching for a real estate agent, there are many was to go about it: you can ask your neighbours or friends for referrals, look at reviews on the internet or walk into your local realty agency and have a chat to the sales agents directly. In general, getting a recommendation from someone you trust is the best way as it is usually first-hand experience.
Many people select a real estate agent by going with the lowest fees. While this can be acceptable if you have a very desirable property that will sell itself, you generally want a selling agent with local expertise, good negotiation skills and a well-organised back-office. Once you have narrowed down a few possible realtors you like, go visit them and interview them. Ask difficult questions about the local market, gauge how responsive they are in returning your calls and emails, and look at some of their current listings: are the photos good, does the ad read well and do thy have regular open houses?
Most estate agents will usually want to have a look at your property before giving you a quote for their selling costs. Depending on the area and your property, you may find agents that charge as little as 1% of the final sale price, and as high as 3%. Most agents will usually quote a real estate selling fee in the 2-2.5% range, however. In addition, many agents will charge extra for marketing costs to advertise your property on the internet and in newspapers and to print signs and brochures. Costs for this can range from $1,000 to $5,000 and more.
