DO NOT SELL YOURSELF SHORT...! Brenda Miller provides exceptional real estate services to home sellers and showing them how to get the highest price, in the shortest time. She also offers advice for home sellers in Lebanon County. The real estate market is neutralizing and there may be more Buyers than there are homes for sale. If you are thinking about selling, please contact me by text or calling at 7178131700 or email: Brenda@BrendaLeeMiller.com


And now, it’s time to sell. Maybe you’ve built up some equity and want to step up to someplace bigger. Or maybe you’d rather find someplace smaller, reduce your mortgage and maintenance costs, and put that money to other uses. In the end, the reason doesn’t really matter — why you’re selling is as individual as you are — but how you sell your home can have a huge effect on the outcome.



It can be a bit intimidating, especially since there seem to be more options all the time. The fact is, four out of five home sellers will use a real estate agent at some point during the process, so it makes sense to understand exactly what real estate agents do. 
At the simplest level, a real estate agent represents buyers and sellers in the purchase and sale of "real property" (e.g., a house). When you were looking to buy, the agent you worked with probably spent most of his or her time showing you houses, which is probably why so many people think that’s primarily what agents do. When you’re selling, though, showing your house is actually a very small part. This is what you can expect from Brenda Miller plus more when we meet: 




  • Help you price your house: Miller will understand the local market in general and conduct a Comparative Market Analysis or CMA to help set a specific price. The trick is to get the highest price you can without scaring off potential buyers.

  • Provide advice on how to present the house: From curb appeal to emptied closets, agents know how to highlight the amenities buyers want.

  • Market the house to buyers: For Sale signs, Internet advertising, direct-mail fliers, newspaper ads, and showings — they’re all tools to get buyers to take a closer look.

  • Market the house to other real estate agents: Truth be told, an agent’s most important target market is not home buyers, but rather other agents. And their most powerful weapon is the MLS or Multiple Listing Service, which, by the way, got its name from “listing” agents.

  • Represent you during negotiations: Once an offer is made, your agent becomes part messenger, part manager, handling counter offers and contingency issues and following the paper trail from initial offer to final closing.


Questions to Ask When Interviewing REALTOR to Represent and Market your Property                                                                                            1. 1. Agent Experience 2. Marketing Plan 3. Personal Info 4. Money Matters








  • How long have you been selling real estate?

  • How many homes did you sell last year (as a seller’s agent rather than as a buyer’s agent)?

  • Of the homes you sold last year (again, as a seller’s agent), what was the average number of days between the original listing and an accepted offer?

  • What is the average ratio between the listing price and the selling price?

  • What is your experience with my particular neighborhood?

  • Perhaps most important, is this your full time profession?

  • How involved are you in Community Work and with your Real Estate Board/Association?



  • How do you propose to market my house? Open houses, previews for agents, yard signs, listings on one or more Multiple Listing Services?

  • At open houses: will you be there to interact with potential buyers, or will you send an assistant to sit my open house?

  • What advertising will you do & why? Online ads, newspaper ads, direct mail?

  • What sort of Web marketing can I expect? Photos, virtual tours, links to other Web sites?

  • Do you take professional-grade photographs (or work with actual professional photographers) so potential buyers can see numerous great photos of my home?

  • How often do you expect to communicate with me regarding inquiries and other buyer interest?



  • Do you consider yourself readily accessible? Evenings, weekends, by cell phone or beeper?

  • Do you expect to be out of the office while my home is listed (vacation, etc.)?

  • If so, who will be handling the listing in your absence?

  • Can you provide (at least) three references?



  • What do you think my home is worth, and how do you determine your valuations?

  • What is your fee structure? Commission, flat-fee, a la carte? Do you recommend one or another?

  • What do the fees include and, perhaps more important, what don’t they include (e.g., document preparation, etc.)?

  • “That’s a hunk of change” (or something to that effect). Why do you believe you’re worth it?







 That last one, by the way, is something of a trick question. Ultimately, you’re not looking for hard and fast answers, but rather, how your interviewees respond. If they have trouble answering, hem and haw, or take offense, it may shed some light on what sort of future relationship you may have. If their responses (or lack thereof) make you uncomfortable, things probably won’t improve down the road.


If, on the other hand, you like what you hear, you’re just about ready to sign on the dotted line and hopefully with Brenda Miller to obtain the best negotiations possible with the least inconvenience to you.
