You want to see if someone is qualified and has the right experience not only to market your home, but to get it sold as quickly as possible and for top dollar. Ask each agent:
What are the comparable listings in my neighborhood? If an agent you’re interviewing doesn’t have a list of comparable homes that have sold in your neighborhood on hand, that’s a huge red flag. Comparables (called “comps” in the industry) are the basis for determining your home’s value and deciding on an asking price.
What do you think my home in Flower Mound is worth and why? During a listing presentation or before it, most agents will ask to walk through your home so they can take notes and see what they’ll have to work with. It also helps them crunch numbers against the comps to provide you with an asking price they feel is in line with market conditions and your goals.
