How To Find The Right Real Estate Agent


In a world saturated with real estate agents, finding the right one for you might be an overwhelming task. With so many people ready to help you find your dream home or sell your current property, it's tough to choose who is going to be the easiest to work with and the best to fit your personal needs.


To help you through this process, we've put together some crucial information for you to consider and ask about while interviewing real estate agents. Finding an agent that is easy to communicate with, knowledgeable of the market, and creative in their strategies will set you up for the most possible success in reaching your real estate goals.


To choose the right agent for you, you first want to be very clear about what it is that you are looking for. Are you looking for an agent to help you sell, purchase, or both? What is the timeline that you're looking at? What are the needs you'd like your new home to meet? How do you prefer to be contacted, and how often? Being open, clear, and precise about each of your expectations helps potential agents give you the most accurate assessment of how they can meet your needs and if your work styles will mesh.


As a buyer, it's important to ask about an agent's strategy for finding new homes immediately as they come to market. Homes can sell in a matter of hours in the current market, so jumping on a new listing as soon as it is available is going to be key. You may want to ask the agent you're interviewing about the average time that other prospective buyers they work with are looking at homes before making an offer, and before having an offer accepted. Ask about their strategy for zeroing in on the right homes to fit your needs and budget. Finding out what sets them apart from other agents will help you make the best decision and get into your dream home as quickly and painlessly as possible.


As a seller, you want to ask similar questions to any potential agents. You are going to want to ask about what sets them and their strategy for marketing your home apart from other agents. You will also want to learn about their communication style, what makes them unique, their success rate in selling homes, and what their strengths are. We also recommend that you look at their past and current listings for photo quality and descriptions. At the end of the day, you want to choose an agent who is going to make your home look as best as it possibly can and sell for a fair price as quickly as possible, but you also need to be able to communicate and work with the agent you choose in a healthy, easy way.
