Dear Monica: I plan to sell my house and need guidance on what tasks I should do and what I can ask my agent to do. Can you advise? David J.
Dear David: An agent works on your behalf and can facilitate the activities that need to be done to prepare the house for sale. But you as the owner of the property are the primary party who contracts with the various vendors. Your agent can then oversee all of the work to be done, including obtaining inspections. Some owners are very “hands on” with the work and others rely on their agents to do this.
Your agent is responsible for executing a marketing plan and preparing materials needed. You and your agent should decide how best to divide the work for your property.
