The most compatible licensed real estate adviser in Woodbridge for you might work for a family business (or a Fortune-400 company), and is not necessarily the one with the most years on the job. Your best choice in Prince William County understands real estate asking in 22192 in Woodbridge, and has the flexibility to work on your schedule.
Each home shopper has unique needs. Some home shoppers love fixer-uppers.Some home hunters are only interested in River Falls. Some property hunters need 4 bedrooms. Just like home buyers, real estate professionals have different personality traits and areas of focus.
Here's my recommendations for shopping the ideal licensed real estate adviser for you when you’re purchasing in 22192:
- Check out real estate agent 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.
- Speak with a few real estate professionals — I once saw a statistic that 84% of home hunters in Northern Virginia choose the first agent they contact. This means one of two things. Either most people are choosing wisely the first time, or they're just rushing into things without scrutinizing what’s available. Probably a little of both.
You don't have to exhaust yourself chatting with agent after agent, but at least chat with two or three to see who you're most comfortable with.
- It's important that you have a good feeling when speaking to your Realtor. — We all have unique personalities, and that's the way it should be. But when working with someone professionally, if helps if their personality “meshes” well with your own. Professional expertise is an important criterion when choosing a Realtor in Prince William County.
- Ask the licensed real estate adviser his/her process for finding houses in Woodbridge. — When selecting a Realtor, ask how they find homes. Some Realtors have their own preferred listings that they favor. But you want what’s perfect for you, not what’s best for your agent. So make sure the real estate agent is willing to search high and low to find the great place of residence for you. That includes using the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) as well as their own personal network.
- Make sure you understand what you sign. — The Commonwealth of Virginia requires all licensed 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 not concerned about getting a representation agreement signed. Some representation agreements describe a rebate paid to the purchaser at closing. (Nesbitt Realty offers rebates.) You'll want to read the fine print to make sure that this rebate isn't pulled away at the last minute. It doesn't hurt to have a attorney take a look at your representation agreement, but usually that's not necessary. The document is pretty straight forward.
