INTERVIEW MORE THAN ONE AGENT
If you decide to sell your home I highly suggest you interview two or three real estate agents. Then you can select the one you feel will do the best job for you. The biggest mistake I hear is "I have an old friend who is an agent". This agent may not do many sales and may be out of touch with the market pulse. Also they may only do it part time, they may be lax in their manner- (it's just for a friend).
Select an agent who is excited about their job and about selling your home. One who works hard and has lots of recent sales. He is going to do the best job for you.
