Next, call realtors to find out which agent will be the best agent. Collect all the information that you possibly can about the home you want to buy or sell. Call at least ten agents and ask each agent to do a market analysis of the home you want to buy or sell. Review each market analysis to find out which one meets your needs. This analysis will tell you the average selling price, the highest selling price, and the lowest selling price and other information. Use this document as negotiating tool to work with the best agent.
Then, do your homework. Ask the realtor questions. Find out how long the agent has been selling homes. How many homes have this agent sold in the last year? Does the agent have a state license? Is this real estate agent competent? What fees and commissions will the agent and his company collect after the deal? Make sure that the realtor will work for you with your best interests in mind. Hire an agent that is responsive, knowledgeable, and honest. The best agents are always easy to work with. Your agent should be able to get along with you. It is very important that you get the answers to your questions because you are paying for advice.
Finally, you can find the right realtor if you contact real estate organizations. It is also a good idea to call agents in your neighborhood and do your homework. The process is not hard or difficult. You have to be willing to put forth your best effort to find the right Realtor.
