As you learn what to look for in a Realtor®, especially if you’re a first-time home buyer, carefully vet your choice. You don’t want to be oversold on a mortgage or pushed into a home that you aren’t quite sure about. This is the largest purchase you’ll likely ever make. You don’t want to pay more than you have to.
Here are some things to consider when selecting a real estate agent:
- Is this a full-time job?
Someone working on the side as a Realtor® might not have the time to devote to helping you find the right home. They might miss some ideal listings or not be available when you need them most..
- Check the number of other clients.
You don’t want someone who only has you for a client; that’s a red flag. You also don’t want someone too busy to handle your needs. Look for someone who has had consistent success and ask for references.
- How familiar is the real estate agent with what you’re looking for?
You want someone who knows the market and the neighborhood. If you’re a first-time homebuyer, you also want an agent who understands the programs available to you.
- Ask about credentials.
Make sure the Realtor® is properly accredited with the National Association of Realtors and your state’s licensing agency. When vetting an exclusive buyer’s agent, you want someone who is an Accredited Buyer Representative or a Certified Buyer Representative.
Don’t be afraid to interview two or three real estate agents before making your decision. We, at Tauber Real Estate Services, are confident that we fulfill the exceptional qualities that you demand.
