It won’t be long until the big spring real estate market gets bustling. Although it’s still months away, now is the time to start getting ready if you’re thinking of buying or selling a home in the Raleigh area this spring. One of the most important tasks is to find the right real estate agent.
Here are a few reasons why it is so important to work with the right real estate agent:
- Personality: Whether selling or buying, one will be spending a lot of time with the real estate agent. They’ll be there through some stressful moments. A real estate agent needs to be someone you mesh well with. The real estate agent doesn’t have to become a best friend but it’s important for there to be a level of comfort with the agent.
- Knowledge: The real estate agent’s knowledge for one’s particular goals is important as well. A real estate agent may be amazing at selling homes, but are they a good buyer’s agent? Or vice versa? Some agents specialize in specific areas and while they’ll do a good job elsewhere, they may not be able to really understand that market. Make sure the agent chosen has experience and expertise that meets the specific real estate goals.
- Has the client’s best interests at heart: The right real estate agent will want to work for you. They should keep the buyer or sellers’ specific wishes in mind and represent them in negotiations, not be focused on closing a deal. They should serve as a good advisor and keep the client informed of all the options available.
