Today, I’ve got four key questions that can help you determine whether you’ve found the right agent.
Before you can find the right home, you have to choose the right buyer’s agent. Getting professional help before moving forward with any real estate decision is absolutely essential.
Today, I’ve got four questions that can help you determine whether an agent is right for you.
"THE RIGHT AGENT SHOULD HOLD THEMSELVES ACCOUNTABLE AT EVERY STEP."
- Is the agent full or part-time? A full-time agent will always be the best choice. Full-time agents are constantly looking at the market, and are in a position to react as quickly as the market moves. Part-time agents simply can’t achieve
this kind of commitment.
- What type of technology is the agent using? Technology helps to make everything simpler. Technology makes the process of finding the right home, going under contract, and exchanging documents so much easier. An agent with access to the
best technology possible is going to be greatly helpful.
- How successful has the agent been in the past? Getting an idea of how an agent has performed previously will be a good indicator of the future. Ask an agent about the number of negotiations they’ve been successful in, for example.
- How do they hold themselves accountable? It’s important to determine whether an agent will be there for you at every point of the process. You want to make sure that an agent will not only be accountable to their commitment while showing
you houses, but will also help you throughout closing, as well. One of the things my team has done for our buyers is to hold ourselves accountable at every step. If a buyer is unhappy within the 24 months after closing, we will come
back and sell the home for free.
If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
