Whether you plan on browsing through condos for sale and buying one or selling one, you’ll need the help of a good real estate agent to get you through the whole complicated process. But before you work with an agent, here are some pointers to keep in mind:
Be on time
Don’t be late to your appointments. And give your agent enough time to put things together or work on a task or request. Don’t expect your agent to drop everything the moment you call. Respect your agent’s time and you and your agent can look forward to a good working relationship, says The Balance.
Be picky with your choice
Don’t just hire any agent that comes along. Also, it’s better if you don’t hire an agent just because it’s a friend of a friend. Unless they’re recommended for their excellent skills and long-standing experience, then it’s a good idea to look for help elsewhere.
Be thorough with your questions
When you’re interviewing agents, be sure to do a thorough job of it. Cover the essentials—credentials, experience, specialization or past projects. To help you keep the interview on track, prepare a set of questions well in advance. This should serve as a handy guide to you during the interview process. That way, you’ll cover all the important points.
Be clear on what you want
Your agent won’t know what to look for unless you tell them. So be clear on what you expect, what your non-negotiables are and what you want. That’s going to help your agent find condos for sale that best fit your requirements and standards.
When you hire an agent, then you should be ready to buy property at a moment’s notice. If you still haven’t got your financing figured out, then get that fixed before you ask for help from an agent.
