It’s in important when selling that you seek out the agent that you feel will get you the best price. Sometimes it’s very easy to just speak to one agent and hire them on the spot, though without contesting their ability to sell property, you will never really know if they were the best pick. On the other hand, if you interview too many, it’s very easy to confuse yourself and actually forget the points that matter with agents that are more suitable, this in turn makes choosing the right agent difficult as you cannot recall everything you spoke about with each agent.
An optimal number of agents to interview would be three to four maximum. This way you can put different styles against each other and also determine which agents are going to be better suited for you. If none of those agents are suitable and you don’t want to go with any of them, then it’s worth continuing the search one agent at a time until you find the one that ticks all the boxes.
This decision is so important that you want to take it very seriously. The agent you choose will determine the outcome of your future. By picking the agent you feel is going to get you the best price in today’s market, you will secure yourself the strongest sale. Your real estate agent matters, make sure you choose wisely, otherwise you may leave tens of thousands of dollars on the table.
