More often than not it is a bit of a mystery as to exactly what real esate agents do and why they charge the fee they do.
When you are interviewing agents ask them to give you a job description !
Determine then if you feel the fee they are charging is fair value and keep in mind their level of expertise and experience .
Are they going to put your property on the internet and wait for the phone to ring ?
How much time will they spend each day marketing your property ? what type of reporting will they provide ? and exactly what will that look like.
These are fair questions you have a right to know what you are paying for.
