Let’s face it, we probably all know a realtor… or several! Finding a realtor that will fit the needs of you and your family is very important. Use the following tips to make sure your realtor is the right fit for you.
Be Upfront with Your Expectations
Realtors are fantastic, but they are not mind readers. Be sure to be up front with what your expectations are. Do you want them to automatically send you listings that match your criteria? Some buyers prefer to do their own house hunting and have the realtor set up the appointments and attend walk throughs once they have found something they are interested in. Be open about the best time to schedule appointments to walk through a home. If there is specific criteria you are looking for in a home, be honest, by telling your realtor what you like/dislike, you will save time and frustration in the long run. Let them know your preferred method of contact to ensure they can get a hold of you in a timely manner. If you have a family member or friend, but feel a different realtor could better serve your needs, don’t be afraid to say so. Your choice in a realtor can have a big impact on the ease of your home selling or buying process.
Recognize a Great Realtor
Be aware of how your realtor contributes to your home buying experience. Do they add valuable input as you walk through homes? Realtors have great insight on layout and other areas of homes, so they should be sharing as they attend with you. Most realtors will also make notes (even if they are just mental ones) of things you liked/disliked about the property to assist them in their future searches for your perfect home. I really appreciated the realtor that assisted us in our first home purchase, there were so many things I would not have recognized as a first time buyer!
