What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Saratoga?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Saratoga?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.
