Choosing the right real estate agent can save you time, effort, and aggravation by finding the perfect home at a price you can afford or by selling your home quickly for top dollar. That 's why it is so important that you understand some key points when choosing your REALTOR:
1: Find an agent that works with a MLS based system.
If you are looking to SELL your home, you want it listed on a Multiple Listing Service to showcase it to as many potential buyers as possible. Homes listed on an MLS are viewed by buyers, realtors, and are syndicated to real estate web sites.
If you are looking to BUY a home, agents that work with a Multiple Listing Service have access to a multitude of homes listed for sale. This means that they can sell you the homes that they personally have listed as well as listings from other offices. This eliminates the need to run around to every agent in town, and instead you can utilize just one agent that is really working for your best interest, and not just trying to sell one of their listings.
2. Talk to several REALTORS, and find one that you can connect with on a personal level.
Real estate is a very diverse field with agents coming from all walks of life. Some agents are young, fresh, and eager to please; some agents are driven, full-time devotees; and others yet are retired from another profession and are comfortable, laid back agents that take the time to make a buyer into a friend! Whatever style you may prefer, talk to several different agents and find one that you connect with and feel comfortable placing your trust in.
3. Don't choose an agent based on an advertisement!
The most important thing when either buying or selling a home is to select the right real estate agent, but people usually go about it backwards! They read a newspaper or get one of the home magazines at the supermarket, and they call about a home they see advertised. Advertising is designed to make the brokers' and agents' phone ring. Typically no one buys the house they call for, but from that point on, they are joined at the hip with an agent they no nothing about- whether they are good, bad, or indifferent. Remember: find an agent before you find the house!
The biggest challenge will be to find the agent that will work the hardest for you. The only way to find the right agent for you is to sit down with them and ask them questions. We invite you to come in and visit with us so that we can show you how we will work for you.
