Whether Buying or Selling a home, you will want to work closely with your REALTOR®.Working with the right Professional is essential to achieving your goal.
How To Find A REALTOR®
There are many ways to find a REALTOR®. It is important to find a REALTOR® who knows the area where you plan to buy or sell and that has a well-established office in that area. Family, friends or co-workers can usually identify for you REALTORS® who live, work and participate in their community.
Another method would be to note the names of REALTORS® from publications and from “For Sale” signs in the market area of interest to you.
You could also ask your current REALTOR® to ‘Refer’ you to a REALTOR® in your area of interest.
And, since you will be working closely with a REALTOR® for weeks or possibly months, it is a good idea to choose someone you feel comfortable with: someone who listens to what you have to say, asks intelligent questions and shows a genuine interest in helping you.
Be Honest and Open
Once you have selected a REALTOR® to work with, be honest in discussing your financial situation, your timing needs, and carefully review with your REALTOR® the features of a property that are an asset to you. This will help your REALTOR® to effectively market your home for sale or, find perspective homes for purchase that best suit your needs. And in addition, it will save you a great deal of time and money.
Most importantly, remain loyal to the REALTOR® you have chosen once the REALTOR® has earned your trust. After all, this person will be spending a lot of time and effort on your behalf.
It Shouldn’t Be a Game Of Chance
Skill and dedication are what you need to help when Buying or Selling.
Choosing the right REALTOR® is like having the perfect golf caddy,
- Escorting you through even the most difficult course and …
- Continually providing you with the tools you need to shoot a hole-in-one.
- All the while, you are calling the shots.
