Finding an Enthusiastic Real Estate Agent

Part of Selling Your Home For Dummies Cheat Sheet (Australian Edition)

If you’re not handling the sale of your property yourself, you’re relying on a real estate agent to bring in buyers and get them interested in your home. Make sure the agent you choose understands your property’s good points and has the skills and commitment to market them with enthusiasm.

  • Does he dress appropriately?

  • Can he talk authoritatively without being intimidating?

  • Is he the kind of person who is likely to win the trust of your potential buyers and encourage them to make a good offer?
