4 Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Highland Mills Real Estate Agent
If you’re thinking about buying a home, the first thing that you need to do is choose the right Highland Mills Real Estate Agent.
Thanks to the Internet many people in 2016 think that it’s easy to choose a real estate agent to buy or sell a home but, it’s not as easy as many people think especially if you choose an agent just by what you read about them online alone. The reality is that the quality of the Highland Mills Real Estate Agent that you choose relies 100% on questions that you asked that agent before you decide to work with them.
In this post I will provide you with four questions to ask a Realtor® so you can confirm if they will be the right agent to help you buy or sell a home in Highland Mills, Central Valley or Monroe New York.
Question #1 – How Long Have You Been a Highland Mills Real Estate Agent?
One of the most important questions that you should ask any Highland Mills Real Estate Agent is how long they have actually been working as realtor because, over the last 24 months many people have become real estate agents thanks to the hot real estate market across the United States and, lack of experience can definitely hurt a real estate transaction and make it harder for you to sell your home for the most money or to buy the home of your dreams.
When verifying the experience of a Highland Mills Realtor make sure that they have bought and sold homes within the Central Valley, Monroe or Highland Mills areas within the last 24 months and, you should also Google their name to see if they have profiles listed on websites like Zillow / Trulia or if they have their very own real estate website with testimonials from their past clients.
Question #2 – How Will They Communicate With You?
There’s no denying that communication is essential between real estate agents and their clients specially when buying Highland Mills real estate because, local properties can be sold in as quickly as 24 hours so, one of the most important things that you can do before choosing a real estate agent is to make sure that they are an effective communicator and will be available to you night or day by phone, text or email if they need to contact you when a new property comes to market or if you have questions and need contact them about your real estate transaction.
Question #3 – Is Real Estate Their Only Business?
Another important question to ask your Highland Mills Real Estate Agent is if real estate is their only business. This question is important because, it’s not uncommon for many people during 2016 to specialize in real estate and a wide variety of other businesses so before committing to a Realtor® who claims to specialize in buying and selling homes in Monroe, Central Valley or Highland Mills make sure that they are someone who works just in real estate alone because this will mean that they are 100% committed to earning your business and will be available to you during all phases of the real estate transaction.
Question #4 – What Is Their Plan For Helping You To Buy or Sell A Home?
After learning more about the Realtors® experience and skill set the next important thing that you need to do is to confirm what their plan is for helping you to buy or sell a home in Highland Mills, Monroe or Central Valley.
Having a game plan is important because in the fast-moving Highland Mills real estate market, homes that just come to market can have multiple offers on them within a few short hours so it makes sense to hire an experienced real estate agent who has a plan for helping you to buy or sell a home in the local area.
