Ask the Right Questions
It is extremely important to gather as much information as possible about the real estate agency you’re interested in working with. Questions you should ask the realtor include:
- How long have you been working in real estate? – A realtor with more experience is generally more familiar with market trends and work better under pressure if unexpected issues arise.
- How many clients do you have at once? – You want a realtor who has time for you. A realtor working with dozens of clients at the same time might not be able to give you the time and attention you need.
- How long have you been living in the area? – If your potential realtor has been living in the area for a long time, they will likely be more familiar with the local market.
- Are you part of a team? – Realtors working in teams are often more advantageous – response time can be faster and there are multiple eyes looking out for new and upcoming properties for you.
Do Your Research
Look up the real estate company you’re interested in on search engines. You can find very useful reviews from past clients on Google, Yelp, Facebook, and BBB. This will give you a greater insight as to how the company works with people and how reliable the agents are.
Ask the real estate company for references. You should check in with those references and ask questions about things like how reliable communication was, how often you were sent homes coming up on the market, and if there were any unforeseen issues the realtor had to take care of (and how well they handled the problem).
