Are you thinking of putting your home on the market in the near future? If so, the timing is on your side. There are plenty of buyers out there that are looking for the right home and you may have just what they're searching for!

In order to get connected with the best real estate agent possible, here are a few of the most important questions to ask  when you're ready to market your home:

How long have you lived in Calgary?

This may seem like an odd question to ask, but you'll want to work with someone that is familiar with the city. When potential buyers are looking at a specific neighborhood it will help if the agent can point out the special amenities found in it. At times, the real estate agent has to take on the role of a tour guide as he shows your home. He'll let others know what makes you house so special while pointing out the unique amenities that are available in your part of town.

How many homes have you sold?

Make sure that you're dealing with an agent that has been busy and active reselling homes in Calgary. Find out the number of homes he has sold recently and then ask him whether he receivedthe asking price for the properties or not. You need to have an experienced and accomplished real estate agent working with you so that you end up with the best deal possible.

How do we keep in touch?

The agent should be willing to provide you with his office phone number, an email address and a cell phone number so that you can both stay in close contact. If one of your neighbours comes to visit and brings along a potential buyer, you'll needto be able to contact your agent quickly to let him know that an interested buyer may have just appeared on your doorstep!
