What to Look for in a Real Estate Agent
There are a lot of things people need to know when they are looking for buy a new home for the very first time. If I sat here and told you all of them I might as well write a book. So that is why I am just going to give you a few suggestions on what to do. The most important thing you need to do is find a real estate agent that you trust and remember that they are working for you. You are not working for them.
I know that sounds easy but it really can be difficult. See real estate agents only get paid when they sell homes. So you have some who are like used car salesmen. All they care about is making a sale and do not really care about the person who is buying the home. I know of some agents knowingly selling homes in floods zones and not telling the buyer. Or working with contractors and selling homes that have major issues foundation issues. When you deceive someone to make money for yourself it just morally wrong. No one wants to get screwed over. So you should never to that to someone else.
If you have an agent that is always showing you homes that you have told them is not your style then it is time to make a change. Or when you see a problem with a home and they blow it off like it is not a big deal at all. That is a clear sign that they just want to make a quick sale. I also have heard of people having to look for homes themselves and the agent never bringing anything to the table. They are not there to just have a key and let you a house. They need to be looking for homes for you. Good homes.
