What to Look for in a
Experience and market knowledge:
As with most things, expertise pays Big Dividends in a real estate transaction.
An experienced agent knows the community, the market and has the contacts
(financing, inspections, tradesmen, etc.) and knows how to negotiate and draft clear and concise contracts that protect your interests and ensure your rights.
Credibility and Dedication to Service:
You want a Full Time accredited professional whose livelihood depends on successfully and consistantly closing real estate transactions. Your agent should deliver relevant market stats, information and new listings on a regular basis.
Communication and Confidence:
It is extremely important that you are totally comfortable speaking with your agent about your goals, objectives and limitations Are you being understood?
Do you feel that your agent is working as hard as you need them to?
Regular feedback from you is also important so that your agent can accurately gauge the level of service you require. Every buyer has a different timetable and the level of service must match the need. Otherwise it can seem that the agent is either being "pushy" if you are not in as much of a hurry as they think you are.
Or... they may seem too "laid back" when you
really have to be moved in the next 30-60 days!
What should your agent expect of you?
Once you have chosen your agent, Loyalty, and Honest Communiction, is all we ask! Always call Your Buyers Agent for information about any property that interests you, no matter who has the listing, we can get you what you need and want to know. When information is provided, give prompt feedback as to whether the property is of interest to you or not.
Remember, you have a self employed business person working for you free of charge! If they are not providing the level of service you need, tell them!
If they are doing a great job, tell them, and they will probably work even harder.
Of course the nicest way to say thank you for a job well done is to...
TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS!
