Consider these steps for finding the right agent:

Whether you&#;re a first-time seller or you&#;ve done it all before, selling a home can be a complicated and stressful experience. It&#;s no wonder that 83% of sellers choose to list with a real estate agent, according to the Zillow Group Consumer Housing Trends Report.

Popular services that sellers say were very or extremely valuable from their agents include their ability to find interested buyers (85%), their ability to guide sellers through the process of selling (80%), and their handling of contract negotiations (80%).

But, while most sellers find it an advantage to use a real estate agent, nearly one-fifth say it&#;s difficult or very difficult to find the right real estate agent (18%). Read on for tips on how to choose the real estate agent that&#;s the best fit for you.

1. Compare real estate agents online

One of the most efficient ways to find agents is to search your local area for vetted agents on Zillow&#;s Agent Finder tool and compare reviews and numbers of homes sold. You can also use other online search tools to check an agent&#;s online presence once you&#;ve narrowed down your top choices. Pro tip: Note how an agent responds to any potential negative or neutral reviews.

2. Get a referral

There&#;s nothing better than a personal referral from a friend or family member you trust. According to Zillow research, more than one in five sellers (22%) find their agent because of a referral from a friend, relative, neighbor or colleague.

3. Check out the local housing market in person

If you have more time on your hands, drive or walk around your neighborhood and look for repeat agent names on real estate signs (bonus if there&#;s a “sold&#; sign next to them!). According to our research, 5% of sellers find agents from a for-sale sign, while 16% hire an agent based on knowing them from their community.

Or, pop into a nearby open house and observe how the agent engages with potential buyers. Take the time to interact with the real estate agent — don&#;t just grab a business card and leave. Keep an eye out for personality and professional chemistry. Seven percent of sellers find their agents at an open house.

4. Meet with at least three agents

When hiring a real estate agent, don&#;t settle on the first agent you meet. According to Zillow research, 56% of sellers only ever contact one agent, but by talking with multiple agents, you&#;ll be able to compare and contrast to find someone who will be a good fit. Handle it like a job interview — because it is! While you might have a front-runner based on a referral or local reputation, ask each of the three agents the same questions and compare their responses.

5. Ask the right questions

Get a sense for their business style by asking important vetting questions. 

  • How long have you been working in real estate?
  • Do you primarily work with buyers or sellers?
  • How many active clients do you have at a time?
  • Are you part of a team?
  • What’s your specialty?
  • Are you equipped to handle my unique situation?
  • How will you market my home?
  • Can you put me in contact with some references?

6. Explain your communication preferences

Make sure you’re on the same page from the get-go. Discuss how the agent will keep you informed and how often you expect to hear from them. If you prefer email but the agent is most responsive to phone calls, you may not be a good fit for each other. Or, if you know you’re going to have lots of questions and expect quick responses, but the agent usually just sends bi-weekly updates, you may want to find someone who is a better fit.

7. Clarify your motivation to sell

Make sure you’ve made clear any requirements that are specific to your own home sale. Are you on a strict timeline? Need to reach a specific bottom dollar? Looking to fall within a particular timing window to avoid capital gains taxes? Make sure to share these details from the beginning so your agent knows what to expect.

8. Discuss selling strategy and number of showings

Make sure you and your potential real estate agent are on the same page about their selling strategy. Will you do open houses? How many showings do you want to do? How much lead time will the agent give you before a showing? How will the property be marketed?

9. Agree on all the important details

The best agent-seller relationships are those with clearly defined expectations. Make sure that, in writing, you’ve agreed upon the commission structure, list price, and contract length (i.e., what happens if your home hasn’t sold after a certain amount of time).  

Non-traditional selling strategies

If you choose not to work with an agent, consider selling your house for sale by owner (FSBO). According to the Zillow Group Consumer Housing Trends Report , 11% of sellers opt to sell FBSO. But keep in mind, it’s a lot of work; it’s a full time job. 

Instead of listing traditionally, you could sell your home through Zillow Offers, and if eligible, receive an all-cash offer. With Zillow Offers, you can skip the typical hassles of hiring an agent, listing and marketing your home. Plus, you can control a closing date that works best for you.

Agent Finder: A New, Searchable Directory to Match Consumers With Agents

Today we’re excited to announce a new — or maybe we should we say, “completely redesigned from the ground up” — feature.

Zillow has long had an agent directory; it was a pretty typical directory with a big list of names and a few options for sorting. And that’s about it.

Gone is the old stand-by directory. Today we have Agent Finder.

Zillow’s Agent Finder is an improved search experience for buyers and sellers, enabling them to identify professionals who possess the skills that meet their needs. Zillow collects a wealth of information within agent profiles, but until now much of this information has not been easy to browse. This new product allows for more specific and tailored searches to help buyers and sellers connect with the right agent, faster.

Aside from making the agent search easier for buyers and sellers, Agent Finder also aims to drive additional, high-quality contacts to local real estate agents. Profile contacts — those in which a buyer or seller has consulted an agent’s Zillow profile and reviews prior to reaching out to the agent — are extremely valuable. With Agent Finder’s many search filters, we’re now able to help buyers and sellers easily browse profiles to find the agent they’re looking for and, as a result, drive additional business to agents — yes, YOU — for free.

How does Agent Finder work?

When home buyers or sellers search for an agent in a specific geographic region (neighborhood, ZIP code or city), the most active agents within that geographical search area are surfaced to the top of the results, and the agents with the most past sales, most reviews and most listings will be labeled accordingly. Consumers can further refine their search with various criteria to limit results to the agents who are most relevant to their needs.

The new search functionality adds several more filters than the previous directory, including language, price, property type, brokerage, team or individual agent, service (representing buyers or sellers), specialty and geographic region.

What does it do?

Agent Finder consults data from agent profiles created by our users, listings information we receive from MLSs and brokers, as well as more than one million reviews of local real estate professionals submitted by consumers who have worked with them. This information is then displayed based on the consumer’s search preferences. Agent Finder is another step toward consumer empowerment, giving people easy access to information to help them make smarter real estate decisions.

How do I get the most out of Agent Finder?

Since Agent Finder pulls primarily from your Zillow profile, you’ll get the most from it if you have a complete and detailed profile. Enter all of your past sales and request reviews. You want your profile to be as rich and informative as possible.

What does Agent Finder look like?

Fully optimized for both desktop and mobile, Agent Finder displays information in a modern, clean design. Check it out on your desktop or laptop, or take a look at the mobile display:

Consumers can sort agents to see who has been the most active in their search area, which can help them evaluate an agent’s experience in their neighborhood.

screen2_iphone6_silver_portrait_update-2

Consumers can also view an agent’s profile to see their reviews, past sales and current listings for both local search and all regions.
