27 Jan How To Find The Perfect Realtor
If you’re thinking about buying or selling a home or condo it’s extremely important that you work with a competent realtor who you trust.
If you’ve never done any real estate deals before you likely haven’t worked with an agent before, which is why we put together this list of things to look at when choosing the best possible realtor in your city.
Experience & Track Record
One of the most important things to look for when searching for the best realtor for your needs is their experience and track record in what you’re trying to accomplish, whether that is buying, selling, renting or even investing. By simply asking a realtor their experience in a particular area of real estate you will find out if they have the kind of track record and experience needed for you to feel confident in their ability to handle any obstacles that may come up in obtaining your goal. Choosing a real estate agent that falls short in this category is often a very unpredictable choice considering how much is at stake when buying, selling, or investing.
Having a realtor with an amazing and proven support system will provide you with much-needed peace of mind in your real estate journey. A realtor who is a part of a big trusted brokerage such as Coldwell Banker will generally have more resources and guidance at his/her disposal. Furthermore, hiring an agent who is a part of a top-performing team is always a safe bet. If your agent were to run into any trouble they will have other highly skilled agents willing to lend a helping hand giving you another layer of peace of mind.
If you have a friend or friend of a friend who is a realtor it’s not always a good choice to hire them as your agent for a few reasons. They may not have the proper experience or a great support system. Not having these two important things creates a higher chance for something to go wrong, which is the last thing you want if they’re your personal friend. However, if your realtor friend has both the needed experience and support, they’re a great choice.
