Each purchase transaction has unique hurdles to overcome. Some purchasers need garage parking. Some buyers love fixer-uppers.Some purchasers can can only afford $437,000 while others are willing to pay $483,000 for the same house. In the same way that each property hunter is unique, Realtors have different experiences and areas of focus.

Here’s my hints for hunting for the most compatible Realtor for you when you’re buying in Springfield:

  1. Check out Realtor 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. Talk to multiple agents — The Realtor you choose should be able to clearly understand your needs. You sometimes need to see the abode you don’t want to buy to feel comfortable with the home you will acquire. It’s the same with licensed real estate advisers.
  3. Don’t under estimate the value of likability. — You and your Realtor might be spending a lot of time together. You want a good listener and a Realtor this isn’t eager to the point of desperation.
  4. Ask the real estate pro his/her process for finding houses. — When choosing a agent, ask how they search for houses. Some real estate agents have their own preferred listings that they favor. But you want what’s perfect for you, not what’s ideal for your real estate professional. So make sure the real estate professional is willing to search high and low to find the right abode for you. That includes using the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) as well as their own personal network.
  5. The devil is in the details. — The Commonwealth of Virginia requires all licensed agents to sign a representation agreement before showing properties or having material discussions about a specific abode. 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 property seeker 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. This advice is heavily used for a reason.
