Your best choice in Springfield probably isn’t a pushy individual. The ideal Realtor point out the benefits as well as the flaws of interesting properties is not afraid to tell you the truth (even when you don’t want to hear it) and knows real estate for sale in Fairfax County.

Each purchase transaction has unique hurdles to overcome. Some buyers love the fact that Nesbitt Realty will rebate them $1,161 when they use me to purchase 8030 Grandview Ct. (Others couldn’t care less.) Some buyers will only be happy with a move-in ready home. Some buyers need garage parking. Just as each buyer is an individual, real estate professionals have different patience and specialties.

Here’s how I think you should select the Realtor for you when your purchasing in 22153:

  1. Check out real estate professional referrals. — I like Angie’s List because I know that Angie’s List voice verifies each review. You can also see if the agent or brokerage has any awards for client satisfaction.
  2. Interview several real estate agents — Take a moment to speak to me on the phone. If I can’t help you, I can point you toward an agent who is more suited to your needs. The agent you should should have time to talk to you. If you pick the most popular agent in town, you might find yourself working with a junior associate affiliated with that agent.
  3. It’s important that you get along well with your agent. — You want a good listener and an agent this isn’t eager to the point of desperation. You will probably be working with your Realtor anywhere from 2 to 12 months, so it helps to get along with them.
  4. Ask the potential agent how they search for homes. — When choosing a realtor, ask how they search for homes. Some agents have their own preferred listings that they favor. But you want what’s best for you, not what’s best for your agent. So make sure the agent is willing to search high and low to find the best home for you. That includes using the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) as well as their own personal network.
  5. Read paperwork carefully. — The Commonwealth of Virginia requires all agents to sign a representation agreement before showing properties or having material discussions about a specific property. Be very wary of any agent that is no concerned about getting a representation agreement signed. Some representation agreements describe hidden administrative fees of $500 to $1000 that you must pay at closing. (Our does not.) It doesn’t hurt to have a lawyer take a look at your representation agreement, but usually, that’s not necessary. The document is pretty straightforward.
Our small-business is eager to work for you.
I used to live in Springfield and know the area very well.
