Questions to Ask an Estate Agent

Questions to Ask an Estate Agent

We received a call recently from a retired gentleman who had lived in the same house for more than 20 years.

He was relocating to be closer to his family and was selling his property for the first time and was unsure what to ask agents.

The advice we gave him is what we share with anyone looking to put their home on the market in Lecrin Valley, Orgiva or Lanjaron.

When choosing your agent to help you, ask them the following questions:

How many years’ experience do you have with international digital marketing?

On what comparable evidence are you basing the valuation?

What do I get for the commission fee you are charging?

How will you market my property? And what is the strategy behind your marketing?

When we go on a valuation visit we are ready for pretty much any questions, well maybe aside from nuclear physics or the behavioural habits of a lesser spotted wombat.

But perhaps the best and most telling question you can ask any estate agent pitching to be instructed is this:

What percentage of homes that you are instructed to sell do you get a sale agreed on and at what percentage of the asking price?

They may not be able to tell you on the spot but with a little bit of simple research, they should be in a position to answer that question.

For us at Lanjaron & Orgiva Property we take pride in the percentage of homes we get instructed on and see through to a successful completion,

Why? Well, we put our success down to two main things.

Firstly, we always price as accurately and honestly as possible. An overvalued property simply stays on the market for a lot longer than it should do, which does the vendor absolutely no favours in the long run and almost always ends up achieving a lower sale price.

Secondly, we are a dedicated team with more than 30 years of international estate agency experience to share with our clients and help them benefit and get the thing they want most.

The best price for their property in the shortest amount of time with the least amount of stress.

And we’ll stay answerable to that.
