Five Signs You Picked The Right Real Estate Agent
Sometimes it can be hard to tell if you've made the right decision when picking your real estate agent. However, there are some clear signs that you picked a good one. Here are five of the top signs that you picked the right real estate agent to help you on your real estate adventure.
1: Your agent is responsive
When you try and get ahold of your real estate agent you can. They answer your calls, texts, and emails and make sure that you are up-to-date on what is happening with your property or future home. Communication is key in every negotiation, and real estate is no exception.
2: They require a pre-approval
Before they will show you any houses, a good real estate agent will require that you be pre-approved. This is a sign of a professional who understands what they are doing. if your agent doesn't ask you to get pre-approved before they show you a house, you may be dealing with a subpar agent.
3: You enjoy their company
To pick the right real estate agent, chemistry can be important as well as skill. You will want to work with someone who you get along with and who puts you at ease. Although it is not the most important factor, having a real estate agent you feel comfortable around and who you mess with is important and knowing that you've picked the correct agent.
4: They have a history of success
It has often been said that history repeats itself. A real estate agent with a track record of success is more likely to continue to have success. Research your agent. Check reviews, and ask them about their track record.
5: They won't lower their Commission
It may seem like you'd want to choose a real estate agent who would be willing to lower their commission for you, but actually it can be a warning sign of a bad real estate agent. If a real estate agent isn't willing to fight for their own money, how can you be sure they will fight for yours? The agents that won't back down with you, won't back down to someone else when negotiating for you.
