Homelight was a great experience. The recommended agents came prepared to discuss our home's value and what we would be able to sell it for. If we ever sell another house, we'll use HomeLight again!

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Salem?

It's going to depend on the temperature of the Salem housing market but we generally recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.

How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Salem?

On average, the top performing 5% of seller's agents generally command a higher selling price (+9%) than the average real estate agent. The top performing 5% of buyer's agents generally save their clients 2.5% more than the average real estate agent at closing. So, whether you're buying or selling your house, your odds of making more money on the transaction are higher if you work with a top performing agent.

Why do I need to hire a licensed real estate agent in Salem?

Always ensure you’re working with a trained, accredited real estate professional. That's the best way to protect you and your property. Every listing agent should be prepared to deliver proof of their license to sell in your area.

While individual real estate agent commissions do vary, most real estate agents in Salem work for 6% of the home price.
