Not everyone has a drivers license.
While this may be a joke, there are a lot of realtors out there. Chances are, you know several of them. How do you choose who to use? Use this guide in choosing a REALOR.
- Knowledge of the market. A good REALTOR may not tell you what you want to hear. The house that you owe $60,000 on may only be worth $50,000. A good REALTOR will tell you the more realistic price that you can actually sell your house for. Your house will generate its highest interest when it is new. Pricing it correctly is imperative. A knowledgable salesperson will know the best homes to buy and what to look for in investment houses.
- Good broker. A good brokerage will have all the elements in place to help your real estate transaction go smoothly. This might be your house's sales marketing or a solid sales team that will assist the REALTOR in your transaction.
- Can you get ahold of your REALTOR? While your REALTOR may not be able to pick up the phone every time you call, a good REALTOR will respond quickly.
- Time. Is your REALTOR available to meet you during times that are convenient for you? If you want to look at houses at 5:30 pm, is your agent going to be able to meet you?
These are just some of the things to look for in a real estate agent. If you are interested in speaking with someone about buying or selling a house, call Landmark at (402)553-8111.
