Your best choice in Prince William County is not always the one with the most sales under his or her belt, and isn't necessarily born in Gainesville, Virginia. The most suitable real estate pro in 20155 helps point out the benefits as well as the flaws of enticing places, and is easy to get along with.
No two home buyers want the same things from a home. Some purchasers want storage space. Some buyers don't plan on selling. Others need to move in 4 years. Some shoppers will only be happy with a move-in ready house. Just as home shoppers are different, agents have different patience and aptitudes.
Here's my words to the wise for digging up the most compatible real estate professional for you when you’re buying in 20155:
- 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.
- Take a minute to talk to a couple of real estate pros — The Realtor you choose should be able to clearly understand your needs. I once saw a statistic that 84% of purchasers in Northern Virginia choose the first real estate 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 weighing all options. Probably a little of both.
- Your Realtor should be someone you won't mind spending some time with. — You want a good listener and a Realtor this isn't eager to the point of desperation. Interpersonal skills are as important as professional skills.
- Ask the potential licensed real estate adviser how they search for homes. — When picking a Realtor, ask how they search for places. Some real estate professionals have their own preferred listings that they favor. But you want what’s right for you, not what’s best choice of for your real estate professional. So make sure the agent is willing to search high and low to find the perfect Rambler for you. That includes using the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) as well as their own personal network.
- Find out more about your representation agreement. — The Commonwealth of Virginia requires all licensed agents to sign a representation agreement before showing properties or having material discussions about a specific home. 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 home buyer 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.
