Your best choice in 22192 in Woodbridge is not necessarily the one with the most years on the job, and is not necessarily flamboyant. The dream agent in Prince William County for you is one who listens to you,  and helps point out the benefits as well as the flaws of intriguing homes.

Tastes, budgets and needs will change depending upon who the home shopper is. Some home hunters need help selling their current home in addition to buying a new townhouse. Some buyer clients need garage parking. Some property hunters don’t plan on selling. Others need to move in 4 years. Realtors are like home hunters, agents have different persistence and skills.

Here’s some best practices for comparing the best choice of real estate agent for you when you’re purchasing a townhouse in 22192:

    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 satisfactionPhoto of 3535 Belfry Ln
    2. Speak with a few real estate pros — Take a moment to discuss to me on the phone. If I can’t help you, I can point you toward a real estate agent who is more suited to your needs. You don’t have to exhaust yourself talking to agent after agent, but at least discuss with two or three to see who you’re most comfortable with.
    3. It’s important that you get along well with your agent. — You will probably be working with your Realtor anywhere from 2 to 12 months, so it helps to get along with them. You want a good listener and a Realtor this isn’t eager to the point of desperation.
    4. Ask the real estate professional his/her process for finding townhouses. — When picking a agent, ask how they seek townhouses. Some real estate agents have their own preferred listings that they favor. But you want what’s perfect for you, not what’s dream for your real estate pro. So make sure the licensed real estate adviser is willing to search high and low to find the perfect townhouse for you. That includes using the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) as well as their own personal network.
    5. 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 hidden administrative fees of $500 to $1000 that you must pay at closing. (Our does not.) It’s critical that you examine all documents during the home buying process, and that includes your agent’s representation agreement.
