1. Excellent real estate agents are NOT a dime a dozen
There is a plethora of real estate agents running around but bumping into a good one is harder than you think. Do your due diligence. Put the time and effort into researching the perfect fit for your real estate needs. You will enjoy the process of buying or selling your home much more if you trust the agent you are working with.
2. YES, you should work with an agent
Sure you could “DIY” but working with an informed and creditable agent will be worth your time! That’s why it is extremely important to be picky on who you pick. Let’s be honest, if you don’t know the world of real estate you put yourself at risk for being taken advantage of. Find an agent that has the experience and knowledge to protect you!
3. Find a savvy agent
This means your agent is present online. In a market where over 85% of business begins with an online search, it is imperative that the agent you choose is staying relevant with social media.
4. When buying a car, you don’t only test drive one
Apply this same idea when selecting an agent. Pick a few that caught your attention online and set up a “test drive”. Schedule a meeting and prepare questions that are most important to you.
5. Remember to have FUN!
True, buying or selling is one of the biggest transactions of your life and should be treated with the utmost care and attention. However, if you pick the right agent it opens up the door to a fun, YES, FUN adventure.
