For most of us, the sale (or purchase) of a home is the single highest dollar personal transaction we will be involved in during our lives. It is a complex undertaking with many moving parts and in order to ensure a smooth transaction with the best outcome--putting the most money in your pocket--it is critical that you choose the right agent to represent you; one that understands and is highly competent in all elements of the sales process.
Questions you need to ask include:
As a seller it is important that you understand that the agent's job is not done, when a contract to sell your home is complete. In fact, many of the most valuable and important activities and services your agent provides take place after the contract is signed.
Your agent's knowledge and experience and how they handle all these phases of the transaction can make the difference between a transaction that blows up and a transaction that gets to and through closing.
