Adding Value to House

Top 3 questions to ask a real estate agent:

Buying and selling a house can be one of the most nerve-wracking experiences! Asking the right questions will help you select the right agent for you.

Question 1

Why should we list with you?

Does your real estate agent have the experience and local knowledge required to sell your property?  

  • For some years, Margarete has been selling properties in the Hills, the Northern, North Eastern and Eastern suburbs as well as Adelaide.
  • Likeability and trust are by far the first and most important factors for vendors because, as agents, we spend a lot of time in their homes and are managing, most likely, their biggest assets. Margarete strongly recommends to vendors, “Trust your instinct—if you like a person, spend time with them to explore what they can do for you and agree on minimum requirements and service levels.”

Question 3

What is the market like at present? Is now a good time to sell?

  • Within the property market, much is written about the best time to buy and sell. However, when it comes to selling a home, it is often more about the right time for you than trying to judge the wider market. There are peaks and troughs during the year, and awareness of the cycle will help you make the most of the opportunity. But don’t forget this doesn’t consider your reasons for wanting to sell.
  • Margarete’s speciality is “Downsizing”, which includes a total service package from selling the vendor’s current home to purchasing a new home.
  • Aside from the market conditions, there is also the timing around what you are trying to achieve.  Generally, if you are selling, you are likely to buy at the same time. If this is the case, it means buying at today’s rates and selling at today’s prices. Keeping a keen eye on the market in advance will help you align both the sale and your purchase. Practically speaking, when you start marketing your property, you should be out looking for your next purchase.

Exploring the answers to these questions will help you find the right agent to sell your property.
