3 Questions to Ask Your Real Estate Agent
How do you know if you’re working with an amazing agent?
The first step would be to “shop around.” It’s always a good idea to interview a number of agents before selecting one. Here are some questions that can help you qualify the best agent to help you achieve your real estate goals:
1. How long have you been in real estate?
The average Realtor has 10 years of experience. But while longevity is important, even more telling are the number of transactions they have closed or been involved in. So feel free to also ask: “How many homes have you sold in this area?”
2. What will you do to keep me informed?
Do you want daily or weekly reports from your agent? Will the agent be able to meet these expectations? Determine how much communication you want, and then find an agent who will give you the attention and time you want and deserve.
3. Can you provide me with further resources I may need?
From market reports and pricing trends to school performance and crime statistics, top agents have resources at their disposal. In addition, market experts have built strong relationships with their extended team of professionals, and can often get expedient service or be able to “cash in a favor” for you should a need arise.
