Working with a Real Estate Agent
A good Realtor can show you more suitable properties, offer valuable advice, and coach you through the entire home buying process.
Do I Really Need To Use A Realtor?
When you use a REALTOR, they will be at your side, making the process of finding the perfect home easier, faster and a lot more fun.
And you’ll save time.
Yet many buyers still spend endless hours pouring through classified ads, driving all over town,and viewing dozens of unsuitable properties – simply because they haven’t connected with a Realtor.
Some people think that if they have several agents looking for homes on their behalf, they’ll find a house more quickly. Like most relationships, the buyer-agent relationship thrives on communication, loyalty and trust. By working exclusively with one agent, you’ll improve both the process and the results.
Finding The Right Agent For You
Some helpful hints on finding and working with a Realtor:
* Ask friends, family members, neighbors or co-workers for referrals.
* Trust your intuition.
* Share with your sales associate as much as possible about your lifestyle, tastes, needs and dreams for your home.
* Focus your search on a few geographic areas.
