What to Expect When Selling a House with a Real Estate Agent

  1. You’ll first meet with your agent to discuss your goals for selling your home.
  2. They will ask about your timeframe for selling, how much you hope to get for your home, and any other relevant information. Be as honest as possible with your answers so that your agent can best help you.
  3. Your agent will conduct a comparative market analysis (CMA). This will help them determine a fair listing price for your home by looking at similar homes in the area that have recently sold.
  4. Once you and your agent have agreed on a listing price, they will begin marketing your home. This may include things like open houses, online listings, and print ads.
  5. Once a buyer expresses interest in your home, your agent will help to negotiate a fair sales price. Once the offer is accepted, they will assist with the rest of the paperwork and final details leading up to closing.

Selling a home without estate agent can be a stressful process, as the same as working with a real estate. Below we’ve listed step by step what to expect from an estate agent to help make your sale much easier.

With their knowledge and expertise, they can guide you through each step of the process so that you can get the best possible outcome for your home sale.

Steps to selling a house with a realtor

Selling a house is a big decision and usually takes a lot of preparation. Hiring a real estate agent is a great way to get your house on the market and in front of potential buyers.

Here are a few tips on how to choose a real estate agent and get your home ready to sell:

Estate agency team structure

The listing agent serves as the primary contact guiding sellers through pricing, marketing, showings, offers, and closing. But a larger team of professionals helps execute a successful sale.

A typical real estate agency team structure and roles in working with a home seller may include:

Listing Agent:

  • Main point of contact for the seller throughout the process
  • Handles listing paperwork, pricing guidance, marketing strategy
  • Manages showings, open houses, buyer communications
  • Negotiates offers, provides transaction support until closing

Buyer’s Agent:

  • Brings potential buyers to view listed property
  • Provides buyer feedback to listing agent
  • Submits buyer’s offers and negotiates on their behalf

Office Admin:

  • Assists listing agent with schedule coordination, paperwork, marketing tasks
  • Enters listing in MLS, orders signage, runs comparables data

Managing Broker:

  • Oversees listing and buyer’s agents, handles disputes
  • Reviews listing agreements and disclosures
  • Ensures ethical practices and legal guidelines followed

Staging Assistant:

  • Works with sellers to stage home for listings if needed
  • Provides furniture, decor items, plans space to appeal to buyers


  • Photographs home interior/exterior for marketing materials
  • Creates virtual tour, edits listing photos, provides expanded services

Virtual / Home Stager:

  • Digitally furnishes rooms to enhance listing photos and tours
  • Provides virtual staging if sellers don’t want to stage in person

The listing agent leads the seller through the sales process with support from a team like stagers, photographers, other agents, admin staff, and the managing broker. Virtual stagers digitally stage homes for enhanced marketing materials. The team works together to execute a successful sale.

Selling process with listing agent

The first step is to find a good real estate listing agent. Ask trusted friends, family and neighbors for recommendations of agents they’ve worked with and had a good experience. Also look at online reviews for agents in your area. 

Once you have a few potential agents in mind, interview them. Get a feel for their level of experience, knowledge of different neighborhoods, typical deal process, and overall personality fit. Choosing the right agent who understand the local market is crucial.

Signing the listing agreement.

  • Read carefully – Go over the entire contract and understand provisions like length of agreement, listing price, commission rates, and marketing plan.
  • Ask questions – Don’t hesitate to ask your agent to clarify or elaborate how they price homes or on any points you’re unsure about.
  • Negotiate – Be prepared to negotiate terms, especially around commission rates, marketing commitments, and the protection clause.
  • Avoid automatic renewals – Beware of clauses that auto-renew the listing period without consent. Define a fixed term.
  • Define representation – Ensure the contract specifies the agent is representing and looking out for your interests as the seller.
  • Understand exclusions – List any exclusions like certain potential buyers the agent won’t earn commission on if they purchase the home.
  • Limit a protection clause – The protection clause still pays the agent commission if the home sells to a buyer they procured even after the listing period ends. Limit the length of this clause.
  • Consult an attorney – Consider having a real estate lawyer review the contract before signing if you have concerns or questions.

Carefully reviewing and negotiating the listing agreement protects your interests as the seller. Define mutually beneficial terms and conditions with your agent upfront.

Before preparing the home for sale in step 2, a home inspection is highly recommended. The home inspection or pre-sale home inspection is always part of the home selling process. A great real estate agent will often offer to cover the cost of the inspection or at least provide a discount. 

Make sure the inspection is done by a qualified third-party home inspector, not the agent. They will assess the condition of the home’s major systems, structure, potential issues and repairs needed. This objective inspection gives you insights to inform your offer price and negotiations.

The second step is to prepare your home for sale. This means decluttering, deep cleaning, and making any necessary repairs. Your real estate agent will likely have suggestions for how to stage your home to make it more appealing to potential buyers.

The third step is to price your home correctly. Your real estate agent will help you come up with a competitive asking price based on recent sales of similar homes in your neighborhood.

The fourth step is to marketing your home. Your real estate agent will list your home on the MLS and create marketing materials like flyers and open house signs. They will also hold open houses and showings to get as many potential buyers through your home as possible.

The fifth step is to negotiate and accept an offer. Your real estate agent will help you evaluate any offers you receive and will represent you in negotiations with the buyers. Once you’ve agreed on a price, the buyers will have to go through a loan approval process. Once everything is approved, you’ll sign the final paperwork and the sale will be complete!

Sixth and final step before you commit to the listing agreement is to determine the real estate market conditions.

Understanding Your Real Estate Agent's Fees

As a home seller, it’s important to understand how your real estate agent is paid. Most agents are paid on a commission basis, which means they receive a percentage of the final sales price of your home. 

The typical commission is 6%, but that number can vary based on your location and the type of property you’re selling.

If your house isn’t the best looking but its location is one of the best, make sure to read our guide on Selling the worst house with the best location.

In some cases, you may be able to negotiate a lower commission with your agent. However, keep in mind that a lower commission means less money for your agent, which could mean less effort on their part to sell your home.

It’s also worth noting that real estate agents are often paid by the buyer’s agent. So, even if you’re not paying a commission, your buyer’s agent will likely still earn a commission from the sale.

If you’re selling a house with a realtor, it’s important to understand how real estate commissions work. The commission is typically a percentage of the final sales price, and is negotiable. It’s also important to keep in mind that the buyer’s agent will also earn a commission from the sale.

Agent commissions and listing agreement

Agent commissions

If you’re going to use a real estate agent to sell your house, it’s important to understand how they are compensated. Most real estate agents are paid via commission. 

The commission is a percentage of the final sale price of the home and it’s typically shared between the listing agent and the buyer’s agent. The standard commission is almost 6% but it can be lower or higher depending on the market and the agents involved.

In addition to the commission, the listing agent also collects a fee from the seller at the beginning of the process. This fee is called a listing agreement fee and it covers the cost of marketing the property and listing it on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

Here is a detailed overview of real estate commission rates in the USA, UK, Canada, and Australia:


  • The national average commission rate in 2022 was 5.37%, with 2.72% going to the listing agent and 2.65% to the buyer’s agent. 
  • According to Clever Real Estate, the average real estate agent commission in 2023 is 5.57%.
  • On a median home price of $390,000, a 5% commission would be $19,500 split between agents.
  • Some discount brokerages like Redfin charge lower commissions of 1-2%, but traditional full service agents typically charge around 5-6%.
  • The US Justice Department filed an antitrust lawsuit in 2020 alleging lack of transparency and competition on real estate commissions.


  • The average estate agent fee for a sole agency contract is 1.18% + VAT. This equates to 1.42% including VAT.
  • On a £500,000 home, that’s a £7,100 commission.


  • Commissions range from 3-7% depending on province. 
  • In Ontario, the average is 2.15%. On a $500,000 home, that’s $10,750.
  • In Alberta, commissions are typically 7% on the first $100,000 and 3% on the remainder.


  • The typical commission ranges from 2-2.5% on the sale price.
  • On a $500,000 home, a 2.5% commission would be $12,500.

Commission rates in the US tend to be highest at around 5-6% on average, while the UK and Australia are lower from 1-2.5%. Canada falls in the middle from 2-7% depending on region.

The good news is that you don’t have to pay the commission or the listing agreement fee out of pocket. These fees are typically paid by the seller at closing from the proceeds of the sale.

Now that you understand how real estate agents are paid, you can make an informed decision about whether or not to use one when you sell your house.

An agent who takes an active, hands-on approach in marketing and selling a home will generally have more success finding qualified buyers and closing sales faster compared to disengaged agents.

Listing agreement with real estate agent

Key elements that are typically included in a listing agreement (USA) between a seller and a real estate agent:

  • Parties – Names and contact information for the seller and the broker/agent.
  • Property Description – Address and details about the property being listed for sale.
  • Listing Price – The asking/list price the seller agrees to list the property for initially. This can be adjusted later.
  • Listing Period – The duration the broker is authorized to list and market the property, such as 3 months, 6 months, etc.
  • Scope of Agency – The type of listing, such as exclusive right-to-sell, exclusive agency, etc. This determines the broker’s role.
  • Broker Duties – Marketing activities the broker agrees to do, like listing on MLS, hosting open houses, promoting online, etc.
  • Commission – The percentage of the final sale price the broker will receive as compensation, typically 5-6%.
  • Commission Payment Terms – When commission is due – at closing, upon seller acceptance of offer, etc.
  • Expenses – What marketing expenses the broker covers versus the seller.
  • Termination Clause – Conditions allowing either party to cancel the agreement.
  • Signatures – Dated signatures of the seller and broker agreeing to the terms.

The goal is to clearly define the broker’s responsibilities and commission structure during the listing period. Having a strong written agreement prevents misunderstandings.

Can an real estate agent advise for mortgage?

Real estate agents cannot provide direct mortgage advice or negotiate mortgage terms, as they are not licensed mortgage professionals. However, agents can:

  • Refer buyers to reputable mortgage lenders that they have worked with successfully in the past. They have experience knowing which lenders are reliable and can close loans efficiently.
  • Assist buyers with mortgage-related paperwork and processes. Though they can’t give financial advice, they can help gather documents, explain terminology, and act as a liaison between the buyer and lender.
  • Provide general information about mortgage options, rates, qualifications, etc based on their experience in the real estate transaction process. But they cannot recommend specific mortgage products or terms.

The key distinction is that real estate agents cannot act as mortgage originators or brokers themselves by advising on rates, fees, or completing mortgage applications. 

Their role is limited to referrals, paperwork assistance, and providing general mortgage information to aid the home buying process. For specific mortgage advice and terms, buyers need to work with a licensed mortgage professional directly.

How to know if an agent is good agent or bad agent

How do you know if an agent is good or bad? Here are a few things to look for:

1. Good agents are knowledgeable about the market. They know what similar homes in the area have sold for and they have a good grasp on current market conditions. This knowledge can be incredibly helpful when it comes time to negotiate with buyers. Good agents also work with good real estate attorney which they trust.

2. Good agents are good communicators. They will keep you updated on what’s going on with your listing, feedback from showings, and any other important information. You should never feel in the dark about what’s going on with your sale.

3. Good agents are patient. Selling a home can take time and there will be ups and downs along the way. A good agent will be there to support you and help you through the sales process and in tough times.

4. Good agents are honest. They won’t sugarcoat things or try to take advantage of you. If there are problems with your home or the market, they’ll let you know.

5. Good agents are professional. They have a good reputation in the industry and they conduct themselves accordingly. This includes everything from being prompt and responsive to dress and demeanor.

If you’re thinking about selling your home, take the time to find a good real estate agent. It will make the process much easier and increase your chances of getting the best possible price for your home.

Tips for Working with an Agent as Both Buyer and Seller

  • Find an agent who specializes in representing both buyers and sellers. Look for an agent experienced in “double end” deals.
  • Be upfront with the agent about your plans to buy and sell simultaneously. This allows them to best coordinate the timing and process.
  • Ask the agent to represent you solely as the seller, and use a separate buying agent to avoid conflicts of interest.
  • Interview several agents before selecting one. Look for responsiveness, experience, and enthusiasm for your situation.
  • Discuss commission and representation agreements upfront. Many agents will reduce total commissions for a dual transaction.
  • Time the listing and offer dates strategically to coordinate closing dates for both transactions.
  • Be flexible on closing dates. Selling first is ideal, but buying first may be necessary if the right home comes along.
  • Consult with a real estate attorney to review any contracts. This ensures your interests are protected on both transactions.
  • Maintain open communication with your agent throughout the process. Promptly disclose any changes in your plans or ability to buy/sell.
  • Be prepared if the buyer for your home needs to sell their current home first. This contingency can delay closings.
  • Understand that finding a new home while selling can be stressful. Your agent should provide guidance to make the process smoother.

The key is finding an experienced agent you trust and communicating your needs clearly. With good planning and cooperation, selling and buying simultaneously is very feasible.

Should you trust the agent matching platforms?

There are a lot of different platforms that offer to match you with a real estate agent. But should you trust them?

Here are some things to consider:

  • The agent matching platforms typically have a lot of agents to choose from. So, you’ll likely be able to find an agent that is a good fit for you and your needs.
  • The platforms usually have agents that are experienced and successful. So, you can be sure that you’re getting a quality agent.

The agent matching platforms can be a great way to find a quality, successful, and experienced agent. So, if you’re thinking about selling your home, you may want to consider using one of these platforms to find an agent.

Should you sell without an agent?

Selling a home without an agent, also known as for sale by owner (FSBO), has some potential advantages but also comes with significant risks and challenges. If you decide not to use a realtor to sell your house, know that the chances are 50-50% ending up at a loss with your real estate transaction. 

Make sure to read our guide on How to sell your property in a collapsing market.

Pros of Selling Without an Agent

  • Save on commission fees – The biggest potential benefit is avoiding paying a real estate agent’s commission, which is typically 5-6% of the home’s sale price. For a $300,000 home, that could mean saving $15,000-$18,000.
  • More control – You make all the decisions about pricing, listings, showings, negotiations, etc. This appeals to some sellers who want full control of the process.
  • Know your buyer – If you already know the person you want to sell to, like a family member, you may feel more comfortable handling the sale yourself.

Cons of Selling Without an Agent

  • Lack of experience – Most people have limited experience selling real estate. Agents handle all parts of the transaction regularly.
  • Time commitment – FSBO takes an enormous amount of time, handling marketing, showings, negotiations, paperwork, etc. This may be unrealistic for many sellers.
  • Pricing challenges – Agents use comparative market analyses to appropriately price homes. Incorrect pricing is common for FSBOs. Overpricing can deter buyers. Underpricing loses money.
  • Limited market exposure – Agents list homes on MLS for maximum exposure. FSBOs often have much less visibility.
  • Lack of objectivity – Emotions can complicate FSBO sales. Agents provide objectivity.
  • Safety risks – Allowing strangers into your home has risks that agents help mitigate.
  • Legal concerns – Paperwork mistakes are common without professional help. Lawsuits are a risk.

5. Ask your realtor for their opinion. They will have experience dealing with home valuations and will be able to give you a good idea of what your home is worth.

Preparing the Home for Sale

Key tips that a good real estate agent would recommend for real estate transaction when preparing your home for sale:

Declutter and Clean Thoroughly

Remove clutter, pack up excess furniture, and declutter closets and cabinets to make the home feel spacious and organized. Do a deep clean of every room – scrub surfaces, clean windows, vacuum, etc. Consider hiring professional cleaners if needed.

Make Minor Repairs

If the property is outdated or in poor condition, fix minor issues like leaky faucets, squeaky doors, cracked caulking, etc. Buyers will notice these details and may ask for repair credits or lower offers if issues seem neglected.

Improve Curb Appeal

Power wash siding, paint trim, update landscaping, etc to improve the home’s first impression. Stage the entryway and freshen up the front door.

Depersonalize Decor

Remove family photos, religious items, political signs, collectibles, etc. so buyers can imagine their own decor. Paint walls neutral colors if loud colors are currently used.

Hire a Professional Stager

Stagers are people of a company that arrange furnishings to showcase the home’s best features and space. This can be done virtually on a computer or physically.

You can either ask your agent if they work with home stager or appoint them to test the free virtual staging for real estate provided by TALLBOX.

More than 9,000 estate agents work with TALLBOX’s virtual staging app to stage their vacant listings and show the potential of condos, apartments, houses, villas, small studios and loft spaces.

Consider Upgrades

Upgrading the kitchen, floors, bathrooms, etc. can allow you to increase the asking price more than the cost of the upgrade itself. But avoid over-improving for the neighborhood.

Work with a Real Estate Agent

Experienced agents will know the right preparations to maximize your home’s appeal and value for the local market. They can also recommend trusted contractors for repairs and staging companies.

Advertising Your Home

When you’re selling a house, the process can seem daunting. But, working with a realtor can help make the process go more smoothly. Here are some tips for advertising your home to help it sell quickly.

First, take good photos. This is one of the most important things you can do to advertise your home. Make sure the photos are well-lit and show off the best features of your home.

Next, write a good description. Your realtor can help you with this, but it’s important to remember that potential buyers will be reading your description. So, make sure it’s clear, concise, and highlights the best features of your home. Depending on the state of your property, a luxurious house has a very different listing description  compared to an old house’s description.

Then, price your home competitively. You don’t want to overprice your home and miss out on potential buyers, but you also don’t want to underprice it and leave money on the table. Work with your realtor to come up with a competitive price for your home.

Market your home effectively. There are a lot of different ways to market a home these days, so it’s important to work with your realtor to come up with a plan that will reach potential buyers.

  • Discuss with your agent whether selling your current home in an off-market or private sale could be advantageous.
  • This avoids timed listing exposure but requires proactive marketing to surface qualified buyers privately.
  • Benefits are privacy, more control in the process, and avoiding market timing pressures.
  • Downsides are missing out on maximum market exposure and potential bidding wars of an open listing.
  • Your agent can tap their network to find buyers looking for off-market opportunities before officially listing.
  • Listing off-market first for a period of time can be a good compromise – test with private outreach then go public.
  • Once you have an offer, you can move forward on timing the purchase of your new home.
  • An off-market sale requires an aggressive agent with a large buyer network, creativity and marketing capabilities.
  • It reduces days on market but is highly agent-dependent for success. Discuss thoroughly.

These are just a few tips for advertising your home. But, working with a realtor can help make the process go more smoothly and help you sell your home quickly.

Negotiating Offers

If you’re selling a house with a realtor, you’re probably wondering how to negotiate offers. Here are some tips:

1. Be flexible on price. If you’re not getting any offers, you may need to lower your asking price. However, don’t go too low – you don’t want to leave money on the table.

2. Don’t be afraid to counter-offer. If you get an offer that’s lower than your asking price, don’t be afraid to counter-offer. Remember, the buyer is probably trying to low-ball you, so don’t be afraid to stand your ground.

3. Negotiating is a two-way street. If you’re getting offers but they’re all too low, try to negotiate with the buyers. Maybe they’re willing to pay more if you’re willing to make some repairs or concessions. It’s a two-way street, so be open to negotiation.

4. Get everything in writing. Once you’ve negotiated a final price, make sure you get everything in writing. This includes any repairs or concessions that have been made. This will protect you down the road if any problems arise.

Selling a house can be tough, but by following these tips, you can hopefully get the best price for your home.

Completing the Sale

Here are the key steps involved in completing the sale of a house, with a focus on the seller’s responsibilities, the realtor’s role, and examples for specific tasks:

Seller's Responsibilities

  • Prepare the house for sale – declutter, make repairs, paint, stage furnishings, etc. For example, the seller would repaint any rooms in neutral colors and remove family photos from walls.
  • Gather documents – locate the deed, survey, title insurance, etc. The seller needs to find the original deed to the house to prove ownership.
  • Disclose property details – complete seller disclosure forms about the home’s condition. For instance, the seller must disclose a past roof leak and repairs made.
  • Negotiate offers – review proposed terms, counteroffer or accept. If an offer seems low given the market, the seller could counter at a higher price.
  • Agree on repairs post-inspection – negotiate credits or fixes for issues found. If the inspection reveals a faulty electrical outlet, the seller can either credit the buyer funds to repair it or arrange for their own electrician to fix it.
  • Sign closing documents – review final documents at closing and sign to complete sale. The seller signs the deed over to the buyer at closing.

Realtor's Role

  • List and market the property – create local real estate listings, promote online, host open houses. The realtor would list the property on MLS and sites like Zillow.
  • Screen buyers – pre-qualify interested buyers to prevent time wasters. The realtor would verify a buyer’s financing before showing the home.
  • Schedule showings – arrange viewing appointments for potential buyers. The realtor would confirm showing times that work for the seller.
  • Negotiate offers – help seller review and respond to proposed terms. The realtor would help negotiate the highest reasonable price.
  • Manage transaction details – act as liaison between seller, buyer, lenders, attorney, etc. The realtor coordinates all required steps in the process.
  • Guide closing – ensure all parties have proper documentation and follow-up. The realtor would confirm the seller has the deed ready for signing over to the buyer.

Closing the Deal

  • Schedule closing date – The buyer and seller agree on a closing date, typically 30-60 days after an offer is accepted. This is written into the purchase contract.
  • Conduct final walkthrough – The buyer does a final walkthrough 1-2 days before closing to ensure repairs were made and the home is in contracted condition.
  • Review closing disclosure – The closing disclosure outlines all the final terms of the transaction. Both parties review and sign.
  • Transfer funds – At closing, the buyer brings a cashier’s check or wire transfer for the sale price and closing costs.
  • Sign paperwork – The deed is signed by the seller, transferring ownership to the buyer. Other closing documents are also signed.
  • Exchange keys – The seller hands over all keys, garage door openers, gate remotes, and security codes to the buyer.
  • Vacate property – The seller removes all possessions and cleans the home before handing over the keys and vacating per contract terms.
  • Record deed – Within 30 days after closing, the signed deed is recorded with the county for public record of the ownership change.
  • Disburse funds – Proceeds from sale are disbursed by the escrow company to pay off the seller’s mortgage and outstanding liens, with remaining funds going to the seller.

The real estate agent will help coordinate the closing process. But the seller must prepare the home, review/sign documents, vacate on time, and complete any other contractual obligations.
