WHAT TO ASK A

real estate agent Kevin Lampen-Smith

REA

Selling a home is a big life decision, both financially and emotionally. The journey can be a roller coaster, which is why finding a licensed real estate agent you feel comfortable with is so important. “Remember, you’re looking for the person who you’re going to trust to sell what’s likely to be your biggest asset. Their success (or failure) will have a marked impact on your new life plan,” says Kevin Lampen-Smith, chief executive of the Real Estate Authority (REA). New Zealand has about 15,000 real estate agents who help people navigate big-deal transactions every day. “The trick is to find the one that will be best for your situation,” he says. “If you’re going to get the best out of your real estate agent – and they’re going to get the best price and conditions for your property – then you need to put the work in before you sign with anyone. That means basing your decision on more than gut feel or the fact that their office was easy to park outside,” he says. You need someone who understands what it takes to sell a property like yours and a proven track record to show for it. You also need to feel comfortable with them personally – if you don’t find them pleasant to deal with then buyers may not enjoy the experience either. If you’re not sure how to get the ball rolling, ask the agent the following questions: • What do you know about my neighbourhood? How are sales in this area and who is buying? • Do you work independently or with other agents? • What kind of advertising or marketing do you use – and which ones will work for my property? What extra marketing costs will I have to pay? • What are your commission rates? Are you open to negotiation?

• Do you have testimonials or references from people whose properties you have sold in the last three months? • What do you recommend I do to prepare my home for sale? • Why should I hire you? Asking these questions helps you form a picture of the agent’s experience, knowledge and how they structure their business. “These days you’d expect an agent’s marketing plan to have an online focus that includes major property websites and social media. Find out what the marketing plan will cost and ask them to explain their rationale – you’re the one paying for this service, after all,” Lampen-Smith explains. Remember that you can negotiate on the marketing costs and commission – don’t be afraid to ask the agents if they are interested in an incentive-based commission, where they will earn more commission if they sell your property above a certain price. Once you’ve found the agent you think you’d like to work with, check them out on the Real Estate Authority’s (REA) online public register, which will tell you if the agent holds a current licence. This is important because it’s illegal to carry out real estate agency work without a licence and if you deal with an unlicensed person the REA will be unable to help you if things go wrong. When you’ve decided on an agent, the terms and conditions of your contract will be set out in an agency agreement that you both sign. This is a legal document, so make sure you get advice from a lawyer and that you understand your rights and responsibilities.
