Hiring a Real Estate agent to help you buy or sell a home in Southern California is one of the most important business decisions you will ever make and the quality of the Realtor® that you hire all boils down to the questions that you ask them.
In this article we will offer you 3 big questions you should ask your Real Estate Agent so you can have confidence that you’re hiring the very best agent to assist you with your Real Estate transaction.
Question #1 – How Long Have You Been Involved In Real Estate?
When hiring a Real Estate agent experience always counts and it’s vital to hire an agent who has the verifiable experience you need because this will insure that you have the best agent to assist you with your Real Estate transaction.
After asking a Realtor® about their level of experience you should go online and verify their experience by looking up the agents name on Google and seeing if they have feedback from their clients on websites like Facebook, Zillow, Yelp or Google+.
Question #2 – What Is Your Preferred Method Of Communication?
There’s no denying that in Real Estate communication is essential, especially in Southern California because if there’s a lag time in communication between a Realtor® and their client the home that the client wanted could be lost to another buyer since it’s not uncommon for a home in today’s Real Estate market to have multiple offers even after being on the Real Estate market for a couple of days.
Question #3 – Do You Specialize In My Area?
Last of all, but most important, regardless if you plan on buying a home in Southern California or elsewhere in the United States it’s absolutely important to confirm if the Realtor® you want to hire specializes in helping their clients buy or sell homes in your target area.
