3 Tips to Finding the Right Real Estate Agent

It doesn’t matter whether you are a first-time home buyer or if you have been looking for one for sometime now.

Finding the right real estate agent means peace of mind from the stress that comes from negotiating, finding and even closing the perfect deal.

But how would you know as to which real estate agent will meet your expectations?

Here are 3 tips to finding the right real estate agent:

1: Ask relevant questions

The job of a real estate agent is to know your goals and objectives. Since there’s a big difference between what you think you want as well as what you want, a skilled real estate agent can help you determine the difference. Apart from this, they also need to know what kind of home you are looking for, your budget as well as the price range as well as the neighborhoods you might consider. In other words, they should act as a good counselor, adviser or even coach.

Check if they listen attentively and take notes instead of constantly interrupting you. Also, see if they ask additional questions that clarify what you are saying and after which, jot down your responses too. Of course, your body language can also give away cues that they can pick up on. Not only should a skilled agent be able to pick up on your demeanor but also what you aren’t saying.

3: Both trained and knowledgeable

For starters, the agent should have a current license in your state. Of course, credentials are important but it isn’t always necessary to have ‘letters’ after their name. Given that ethics is really important, they should belong to the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Yet most of all, they should have an important understanding of the marketplace apart from sales and comps too.
