Are you thinking of possibly selling your Virginia equestrian property? When you’ve thought things over and selling the horse ranch is the best possible solution to the concern or challenge you are facing, then it’s time to commit to that decision.
There are many things to consider and a long list of things to prepare. You’ve probably even made a list of things to do, as well as a list of questions to ask your real estate agent.
Some questions are easy to ask. Others are more difficult.
Here are several questions you should be asking but don’t know how to ask:
1. Why should I hire you?
It can be an awkward question, but it’s something you have to ask. You need to know what sets your real estate agent apart from others. A good agent will have an answer prepared, providing reasons why he or she is best suited to the job.
Real estate agents vary in skills and niche. Some excel in selling luxury properties while others do best in selling single family homes.
But if you are looking for someone to help you professionally sell a horse farm, you can’t just trust your property to anyone. Not all real estate agents know how to sell an equestrian property.
Only someone with the local knowledge knows the intricacies of buying a property with the right soil and features.

2. Who tops your list of most difficult client and how did you handle it?
This a common question in the corporate world if you are looking for a job, but if you are hiring the services of a real estate agent, it can be difficult to ask. However, you’ll find the answers interesting and sometimes amusing.
More importantly, the answer reflects several personality traits of the real estate agent. Selling a property can be stressful, and when tensions run high, you need to have an idea of how the agent will handle and cope with the situation.
You want an agent who is patient and open to communication. If this is your first time to buy a property, you want to learn about the process as much as possible, and you’ll have plenty of questions.
Find an agent who will patiently teach and coach you through the selling process without making you feel embarrassed that you have to ask.
3. If you are a buyer, will you be interested in my property?
You need the honest opinion of your agent. You may not like the possible answer, but it’s a question you have to ask because you want to see your property through another person’s eyes.
4. What features will help sell this property?
Buyers are looking for specific features and amenities when they buy a property, and it depends on what their final plans for the property are. Ultimately, your horse farm for sale in Virginia should offer features they want.
5. How much do you charge for your services?
It’s always good to be clear and transparent on money matters. You’ll be paying the real estate agent, so you need to know exactly how much to pay for.
Real estate agents don’t charge a flat fee. Rather we take a percentage of the property’s selling price as our commission.
If you have any concern about the commission, don’t dance around the subject. You need to discuss it directly with your real estate agent.
6. What kind of guarantees do you offer?
A question that many sellers forget to ask agents is guarantees. Since you’ll be paying a good amount of money, you should hold the agent to a high standard of service. Find out if the agent offers any guarantee and what those are.
Get to know your real estate agent well. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Your real estate agent has heard many strange questions asked, so he or she can take it.
