The right real estate agent for you does not have to be the friend of a friend, and might not be a local. Your best choice in Northern Virginia wants to work hard to find you the home of your dreams and wants to find a residence that appeals to you (rather than to the Realtor).
No two home buyers want the same things from a home. Some property seekers are investors. Some purchasers are only interested in Barcroft Hills. Some homebuyers don’t plan on selling. Others need to move in 4 years. Every shopper is an individual; in the same way, Realtors have different expertise and faculties.
Here are some tips for discovering the best choice of agent for you when you’re buying a dwelling with 1 bedroom in 22041:
- 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.
- Talk to multiple Realtors — You don’t have to exhaust yourself talking to agent after agent, but at least speak with two or three to see who you’re most comfortable with.
- Your real estate professional should be someone you won’t mind spending some time with. — You don’t want to have to explain the same thoughts and ideas over and over. You and your licensed real estate adviser might be spending a lot of time together.
- Ask them how they search for units. — When picking a Realtor, ask how they find units. Some real estate pros have their own preferred listings that they favor. But you want what’s great for you, not what’s most compatible for your Realtor. So make sure the agent 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.
- 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 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 buyer client 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 an attorney take a look at your representation agreement, but usually, that’s not necessary. The document is pretty straight forward.
If you are ready for an agent in Falls Church, I highly recommend Will Nesbitt. I know you’ll see that Will Nesbitt is appreciative and courteous.
