6) Picking the Wrong Agent
Selling with an agent is definitely the way to go, but how do you find someone you can trust? Make sure you’re choosing an agent that has your best interest at heart. Read client reviews, check their licensing and credentials, and make sure they have plenty of experience selling in your area. When you actually meet with an agent, be sure to ask about their marketing strategies, negotiation style, and how often they plan to communicate with you. After all this person will be helping you sell your most valuable asset, so it is in your best interest that you’re on the same page.
