How to choose a realtor right ?!
We modulate the situation, which is usually carried out the choice of the realtor: 1) call the realtor; 2) meeting with the realtor; 3) receiving answers to the questions asked; 4) making a decision on cooperation and / or rejection of a particular realtor’s candidacy; 5) signing a cooperation agreement or / or seeking another specialist.
Are the main and determining criteria for choosing their intermediary (realtor) in the real estate market – long experience, legal legal status, narrow specialization, recommendations of friends and acquaintances. But! Even the listed NONE gives you a guarantee of a quick and effective solution to the issue.
In order to avoid fraud or incompetence, the following should be taken into account:
– A skilled specialist can clearly and objectively outline the maximum achievable result at once. Therefore, as a realtor who will provide “rainbow” promises to the client, it will quickly start to exert pressure on the client, which will eventually end with a rupture of cooperation or a transaction on extremely unprofitable terms for the client. We must remember that the realtor can only offer, and the decision always accepts the client;
– Qualified realtor services can not cost a penny. Remember that a person who works for a minimum reward is most likely an unqualified specialist in his case;
– during all time, work with the realtor should be comfortable. Reeltor with sufficient experience first of all cares about the needs of the client, and not on the characteristics of the property (this is a secondary issue). Lower level specialists can impose your property and “run in front of the carriage” with the implementation of the transaction and its accompaniment, etc .;
– all the nuances that may arise with the work of the realtor (with the realtor) is better to discuss immediately. These can be – the benefits of a particular realtor over other realtors (number of closed deals, the number of repeated calls, etc.); 2) terms of purchase / sale (stipulated in advance with indication of actions in case of non-solution of the issue); 3) the number of objects with which the realtor works simultaneously (we must remember that if more than 3-5 objects are simultaneously working, the efficiency may be low), etc. It is best to consolidate all the points in the agreement so that there will not be any misunderstandings.
On the basis of all of the foregoing, one can conclude that if you do not have the time and the desire to independently deal with the real estate transaction, then the realtor is the first person to meet and to choose which should be approached thoughtfully and prudently.
