Whether it is a friend or a family member, you feel that you can trust an estate agent more when you know that they have assisted someone you know before. This is especially true if they were given some very good positive feedback from the people that did hire their services in the past.

Consider the kinds of properties that they have sold and find out if they have had a lot of experience selling properties that are similar to yours. You will want to hire an experienced estate agent. So, it pays to find one who actually has a lot of exposure in selling properties that are very much like your home. This way, you are quite confident that they would know how to market it right to get it sold fast and at such a good price too.

Consider the descriptions and make sure that they are accurate as well. What you want is an agent that you are going to have the confidence to present the property in the best light possible.

Check their fees. While rates may vary, most estate agents will charge between one per cent to three per cent of the final value of the property upon sale, as their commission. There are some instances when you can get the fees haggled in order to lower it a bit. However, you have to remember that estate agents work on a commission basis so they would be less motivated to sell the property if they are not really getting that much out of it. While there is nothing wrong with haggling, haggling the rates way too low will only take away what incentive that they need to focus on your property and selling it.

Make sure that the estate agent that you can work well with. Consider what your gut instinct says.
