There are potential pitfalls in every transaction. Some home buyers don't mind a longer commute to get more than 2,658 sqft of place of residence. Some property seekers are buying a first home. Some buyer clients are investors. In the same way that each shopper is unique, Realtors have different attention to detail and faculties.

Here's how to find the most compatible licensed real estate adviser for you when you're buying a house like 5632 Eppes Island Pl with 2,658 sqft of living space:

    2. 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

    3. Speak with a few Realtors — The real estate professional you choose should be able to clearly understand your needs. You don't have to exhaust yourself chatting with agent after agent, but at least talk with two or three to see who you're most comfortable with.
    4. There should be a certain chemistry between you and your real estate agent. — 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. You want a Realtor that “gets you”.
    5. Find out how each Realtor identifies properties. — When deciding on a Realtor, ask how they find homes. Some Realtors have their own preferred listings that they favor. But you want what’s right for you, not what’s right for your agent. So make sure the Realtor is willing to search high and low to find the most suitable home for you. That includes using the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) as well as their own personal network.
    6. 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 house. Be very wary of any agent that is not 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.) This advice is heavily used for a reason.
