Finding the right Realtor can be a challenge. Regardless of if you’re selling or buying, there are so many real estate agents that you can choose to work with — how do you know which one is the right choice? If you’re getting ready to sell your home or purchase a new one, here are a few of the qualities that the Realtor you choose to work with should possess.
The real estate market is constantly changing, and it’s important that the Realtor that you hire is not only familiar with this but that they are also knowledgeable on how the market is fluctuating and how those changes will affect you. A reliable Realtor will be able to not only provide you with market statistics but break them down so that you can understand how you’re affected by them.
Who wants to work with someone that isn’t great with people? The Realtor that you choose should be easy to talk to and someone that you feel comfortable with. The process of buying and selling a home is stressful, but your real estate agent should be someone that you can go to as a friend and confide in at all times of the process.
Finding the perfect home is possible, but it requires a Realtor that can listen to your needs and then act on them. Find a Realtor that will hear what you’re saying when you talk about the different things that you’d like to have in your next home. Sure you could hire someone who provides you with a list of houses for sale, but if they don’t match your needs then what’s the point? Find someone that can listen to your needs and act on them.
Without a doubt, one of the most challenging parts of both buying and selling a home is the negotiating that will inevitably have to happen. You are going to want someone that is determined, driven and relentless fighting your battle when it comes to the negotiation aspect of the process — which is why it’s crucial you can see that grit in their personality.
Time management and work ethic make up a piece of every Realtor’s life, but how well your Realtor can balance the two of them is an entirely different story. Most homes that are placed on the market are ready to be sold, and the same can be said for the buying process. Sure there are times where there’s a little bit of wiggle room in regards to the schedule, but more often than not we’d like to get the job done efficiently. Talk to your Realtor about the way they plan to approach it and get a feel for their drive.
