Questions to Ask Your Advisor

Interviewing potential Advisors is a sure-fire way to find out which one of them is right for you. Knowing what questions to ask can save you a headache or two down the line. Before you sit down to talk Calgary real estate, make sure you've prepared a list of relevant questions. Don't be shy about taking notes and asking lots of questions!

5 Questions You Should Always Ask Your Advisor

1. How can your experience benefit my anticipated real estate transaction?

Whether the Advisor just completed a course on negotiation skills or sold a home in your neighbourhood, they should be able to bring a unique edge to the table.

2. If you were buying or selling your Calgary home, what would you look for in an Advisor?

This question is a great way of getting the inside scoop on the industry. What do industry professionals see as an essential asset? How does each Advisor vary?

3. Tell me about a recent work success.

Give the Advisor a chance to discuss their latest win and you'll learn what they're passionate about and how they'll turn your home purchase or sale into their newest achievement.

4. What are your most effective approaches to marketing a home?

Rather than the standard "How will you market my home," ask which methods are delivering results. If your Advisor is particularly successful with social media or tried-and-true networking, you'll gain insight into how they'll tackle selling your home.

5. Give me a rundown of the conditions, commission fees, and agreements.

These basics will play a major role in how you choose your Calgary real estate Advisor. Ask for the specifics at each interview, and you can see how each partnership measures up.
