Questions to Ask a REALTOR®

Are you a REALTOR®?

Only a REALTOR® has the right combination of Experience, Education and Ethics.

What is your background, and what professional organizations do you belong to?

Your REALTOR® should be a licensed professional who is ideally a member of the Greater Las Vegas Association of REALTORS®, the Nevada Association of REALTORS® as well as the National Association of REALTORS®.

Do you mostly represent buyers or sellers?

REALTORS® can choose to concentrate on either, or represent both. There are extra designations and certifications a REALTOR® can earn and explain to you.

Can I see your references?

You’re hiring a REALTOR® to do a job and are entitled to see what others have to say about previous work.

How will we work together?

Right away, discuss hours of availability and preferred methods of communication.

Are you familiar with the area?

Different parts of the community have different considerations. A REALTOR®will be able to help you understand market conditions at the neighborhood level.

What should I know about this market?

The housing market changes constantly, and every neighborhood is unique. REALTORS® are the experts. They'll know the latest local market conditions and trends.

In addition, if you're a seller, be sure to ask

In the last six months, how many homes have you listed and sold that are similar to mine?

If you are financing your home, here are some terms you should know:

Some REALTORS® specialize in different types of homes, from luxury homes and high-rises, to condos and townhomes, to homes in master-planned communities. They should be able to provide you with their recent transactions in your area.

How will you market my home?

REALTORS® have unmatched resources to create a dynamic marketing plan to help you sell your home. There are many media and methods a REALTOR®can use. Discuss which ones work best for you.

What listing price do you recommend?

A REALTOR® has up-to-the-minute market data to help you set a fair price that will both attract buyers and get you top dollar.

What will your commission be?

Commissions are negotiable. Always discuss the rate up front. When a REALTOR® works with the buyer's agent, they are required to pay the buyer's agent commission, which will be factored into the price.

Can you explain the listing agreement to me?

Go point by point, so you can understand fees, as well as start and ending dates.
