Are you planning on buying or selling a home? There are some key questions that you must ask realtors to understand how they work. Hearing the realtors’ response will uncover their ability to work with you and help you achieve your goals.
Ask these questions to distinguish the best realtor for you.
This question will make you understand a realtor’s motivations. It encompasses how they work and the amount of work they are willing to give.
Being a real estate agent is tough; it can be all-consuming. Ensure that if you put in an offer, your agent will be around and able to help you out full time.
In our brokerage, everyone's full time. This is what we do. This is the strength that we have in helping our clients to move up and find the best home for their family.
But not all great realtors are full time. There are some incredible part-time agents out there who are really good at what they do. They love their jobs so much that they just want to do real estate on the side. You just have to understand where they're coming from.
This interesting question will foster a very fantastic conversation. Even if you are looking for the best deal or the cheapest commission, you have to know how someone will add value to the transaction.
Interview your realtor about how they add value to the buying and selling process. Understand what they're going to do and how they're going to do it. When you hear and understand exactly what that person is saying, you can then negotiate commissions.
These are the four questions that you should be asking an agent when you're interviewing them, and you're trying to decide who you're going to work with. These questions will help understand an agent’s position, strengths, abilities and what they can offer to you as a client.
