JLC Real Estate Selling Information

Choosing an agent to sell your property

Finding the right real estate agent to sell your Queensland property is a crucial first step in the process. They will provide sound advice on pricing and selling, market the home to attract buyers and negotiate on your behalf to get the best price possible for you. 

However, there are many questions you should ask an agent before you sign the appointment form, which is the legally binding contract  giving the agent authority to sell your Queensland property on your behalf. Here are some queries to consider:

  • Are they licensed? Is their agency licensed?
  • Do they know the local property market? Can they provide sales data for other homes in the area?
  • How will they advertise and sell your home? Do they have a proven track record for this?
  • Have they provided an estimate of the sale price? Is this backed up with a comparative market analysis (CMA) of at least three other properties?
  • What is their commission and fees? Are there potential extra costs? When will these be paid?
  • Exactly what services will you receive for the stated costs?
  • Will they be the sole agent working to sell your property?
  • Do they have professional indemnity insurance?
  • Do they subscribe to a code of ethics? 


Tips to get the most for your property
