Buying and selling real estate in Wisconsin needs professional guidance to make sure you get the most money out of your valuable property.
What is the one question you should ask a person that you're considering hiring to help sell probably one of your most valuable possessions, your home? It's a question that I think if they give you the wrong answer should be a big red flag in the interview process.
Ask your realtor that you're interviewing, "Why they got into real estate?", plain and simple.
If they look at you and they say because I love houses, I would caution you to think hard before you hire that Realtor. While a loving houses is a GREAT quality, it shouldn't be the main reason they are working in this profession. They should love negotiations. They should love marketing. They should love advertising. They should love stats and numbers. Because those are all the things a realtor has to deal with on a daily basis to be informed and on top of the market as well as able to assist you in the sale of your home.
Real estate agents are essential advocates and guides as you navigate the home buying and selling process. They will be experts in your target neighborhood, help you find work through the transaction, negotiate the contract, and provide information you can’t find anywhere else about local market stats. They will also walk you through the process, supporting you as you complete your offer and making sure your contract includes all the right clauses to protect you. Without an agent, you may be faced with doing all the paperwork and legwork yourself, which could cost you money and often more importantly, time..
And if I can help in any way, please give me a call. I would love to assist.
