Choosing the right real estate agent is… well….. scary!!! Don’t kid yourself. We ALL go through the emotions!! Trust me. Choosing the right agent makes ALL the difference in the world!! From buying or selling your home, it’s like a job interview, and should be. You want and need to know that you’ve got the best to do the best.
*You need to look at all of the facts when choosing the perfect realtor*
Here are some key categories that you should look into before you make your final decision.
1.Look at the reviews!!!
2.Ask for a “pre-listing” appointment
3. Ask about commission rates
4. Do a “personality” test
5. Have a check list before and during your appointment & make sure that you ask all of your questions you may have and make sure that all of your questions have been answered!!
There’s no magic number when it comes to experience. But sellers should look for agents with enough sales under their belts to comfortably handle deals from listing to closing. Equally important the agents need to know their areas and markets, and have familiarity with all of the local inventory.
Ask about the marketing department!! This is very important!! This allows for you to know the greatest numbers of potential buyers.
Make sure that you have have great communication!!! You should hear from your agent A LOT!! You should be kept informed of all information from start to finish!
Ask your agent about working with buyers! And what their experiences have been. The insight into the mind of a buyer makes an agent a great negotiator!!
It’s valuable to find an agent who has a solid grasp of home financing because loan issues can make or break a deal. Make sure that you have a reputable and reliable lender to secure the loan. You do NOT want any delays with financing. Your agent should give you their “lender of choice” during your first visit.
