Buying an Orange County home is one of the most exciting things that most people will ever do. But, before the satisfaction comes of having the keys in and hand, and opening the door to the home for the first time, real success when buying a home comes from knowing what to look for in a Realtor.
The most important thing to search for when choosing a Realtor is to find someone who has verifiable experience and isn’t afraid to give a new buyer or seller references form their happy clients because happy clients will not be afraid to praise the Realtor who helped them buy or sell their home.
Passion Pays Off
Once a Realtor with experience is found, the next step is to find someone who has passion for helping their clients buy or sell homes and isn’t afraid to show their passion to prospective clients.
Are They Creative?
It’s exciting to find a Realtor who has experience and passion for their job but, do they have creativity for when it comes to creating a custom marketing plan to sell a home or for looking in new or old locations to help their client buy the home of their dreams.
Market Savvy Is Vital
What is “market savvy”? It’s the ability to interpret what buyers or sellers are looking for and find the right homes to meet their specific needs even if the client doesn’t know specifically what they want.
Many times a Realtor will show a home buyer homes that are out of their price range, and not exactly what they are looking for. A good Realtor will break this trend by listening to the wants and needs of their clients and using their market knowledge to find them the right home that covers all of their “bases”.
