Whether you’re planning to buy or sell property in the future, you may want to work with a real estate agent to guide you through the process. Here’s a look at questions to ask.
1. How long have you been in the business? First, ask about the agent’s experience. Not just how many years, but how many buyers or sellers do they work with that have similar needs.
2. Also consider the difference between a part-time real estate agent who sells a few properties for friends and relatives and someone who treats it as a full-time business venture.
3.How will you communicate with me? A communication lapse of a few hours can mean the difference between an accepted offer and missed opportunity. With that in mind, choose an agent who responds quickly in the mode of communication that works for you , whether it’s email, text, or phone.
These questions can help you get a sense of the agent’s process and personality, but the right decision may depend on your instinctive reaction. We have included our video to help include a few more questions when it comes to interviewing the real estate professional that is right for you.
