If it is your first time to interview Wellington short sale realtors, be aware that some realtors can be so effusive in their charm that they’ll make you forget it’s your role to take command of the interview – and not the other way around. To ensure that you get the answers you need – and hopefully find the ideal realtor to work with quickly as well – here are some questions that you may want to consider including in the interview. They’re guaranteed to help you make the right decision.
How much experience does the realtor have with short sales?
Short sales and sales of brand new homes are as different as apples and oranges, and don’t let any realtor tell you differently. Different rules are involved here and as such someone with significant experience with selling brand new homes or even fixer-uppers may still not be entirely useful in helping you complete a short sale for your property.
When interviewing Wellington short sale realtors about their experience, you should ask for a specific example or case in which the realtor was involved with. Listen closely and examine the actions that the realtor took in order to close the deal. If you were in the seller’s position, would you have been satisfied with the realtor’s work?
How does the realtor plan to advertise your property?
Time is of the essence here. After all, short sales are often – but not always – pursued as a way of preventing foreclosure. If this is true in your case then you need to make sure that the realtor you will be working would be able to do everything possible to sell your home.
More specifically, your realtor must be able to do things that you personally can’t do on your own. Consider Internet advertisements for instance. If your realtor has a high-ranking website to advertise your property in then that’s a huge plus point for him or her.
How does the realtor plan to keep you updated?
While it’s paramount that you understand the need to give your realtor space to work on marketing and selling your home, your realtor should also understand that you would be naturally anxious for updates. If the realtor cannot commit to a specific schedule for updating you about the latest changes regarding your home’s short sale then he or she is not the right realtor for you.
The best Wellington short sale realtors know what you are going through without a word being said and will do their utmost to assuage your fears while working efficiently to get the best possible price for your property.
