Choosing the Right Realtor￼
Buying a home or selling your current home is a big endeavor. The financial and emotional impact of home buying or selling can really leave a lasting mark on a person and family. The realtor and company you choose to represent you during these times is important.
While all real estate agents are licensed to help you buy and sell homes, not all of them are equal in skill set.
Finding the right realtor is a lot like finding a best friend or partner – some will just be a better fit than others!
It is important to find a realtor that understands you and will advocate for your wishes rather than what they think is best. While input from the professionals should always be advised and listened to, at the end of the day, a realtor is there to serve you and your wishes.
When deciding which realtor to use to buy or sell your home, you should also look at their reputation. A great place to start is on their company’s website or on Google if they have any public reviews. Real estate is an industry of relationships, if the real estate agent you choose does not have a good reputation with clients or other realtors, it may be hard for them to close a deal for you.
Communication is also key when working with a realtor. Real estate is a 24-hour business with new offers coming in at any time of the day and new houses going on the market at all hours. You will want to work with someone who is available by phone or email regularly and who will answer your questions and concerns in a timely matter.
When you are talking to your realtor, do you feel like they understand not only your needs, but also the neighborhood and real estate trends going on around you? Knowledge is power and if your realtor doesn’t seem to understand the ins and outs of the industry, they might be putting you in bad position to get the home of your dreams or sell your current home. Always make sure your real estate agent seems knowledgeable and informed on the real estate market in your area.
