Questions To Ask Your Real Estate Agent

by Luke Fields

Deciding to sell your house may not be an easy decision to come to, but it won't be the only hard decision you will face if you do decide to sell. You will have a lot of things to consider and choices to make. When you come to the conclusion that you are ready to sell, here are some of the things that you may want to make sure to ask your real estate agent, so you know what to expect and what is expected of you:

How much do they suggest you ask for your house? Your real estate agent will be up to date on their knowledge of the current real estate market, whether or not it is a good time of the year for a fast sale, what other houses have recently sold and for how much, as well as how long it took for them to sell. They will take all of this into consideration when suggesting an asking price to you. Obviously, the price will be lower if you need to sell quick, where you can go a bit higher if you are in the position of being able to hold on to the house for a while.

Do they think you should make certain improvements? Your real estate agent can really help you with regards to giving good advice on the things that are more worthwhile to fix and the things that may be a waste of your time, money and energy. If you decide to start making improvements on your own, you may find out later that you put your time, energy and money into the wrong projects.

How important do they feel it is for you to move out for your home to be shown? Your real estate agent may feel that they can show your house fine as long as you can be prepared for them to show a clean and organized home at the drop of a hat. Or, they may really feel that the best bet for selling your home fast would be for you to move, if possible. If you can't then they can also give you advice on things you can do to live in the home while not accidentally hindering offers.

Is there anything you can do to help the house sell? You should also ask your real estate agent if there is anything else they feel like you can do that will help increase the chances of you getting a good offer on your home.

About Me

Do You Need Private Mortgage Insurance?

Welcome to my website. My name is Larry Silva, and I want to talk a bit about private mortgage insurance. You may have heard the term PMI mentioned when you were in the process of purchasing real estate. When I first heard my lender talking about PMI, I was very confused. It was my realtor who sat me down and explained what private mortgage insurance was and when someone is required to purchase it. He told me that PMI is not lifelong insurance; it can be cancelled when the mortgage principal balance reaches a certain point. Once it was explained to me, private mortgage insurance was no longer a mystery or a confusing concept. I would like to pass on what I learned and hope that you find it to be of value.
