If your listing expired recently, you might be disappointed in the service you received from the listing agent. You might even be bombarded by other real estate agents contacting you to re-list your home. To figure out what your best move is, start by reviewing your listing agreement. Make sure the relationship with your agent is terminated and you are not contractually involved with the agent or his/her company.
Next, consider your options and ask yourself these questions:
Review the current market. Is your home priced appropriately? Look at what homes of similar size and condition are selling for in your neighborhood. Keep this information for the next conversation you have with a real estate agent. If you decide you’re ready to re-list, ask your family, friends and co-workers for advice and referrals on companies and agents to work with.
Consider putting a few questions together for an interview before you enter into another contract. To have a more positive experience, find out more about your agent and their experience by doing some research online. It’s OK to interview several agents before signing another agreement.
