Buying and selling homes is a full-time job that popular Heritage Todd Creek realtors earn in schools and courses, a job that takes skill and dedication. If you own a property that you want to sell or you are looking for property to buy, hiring a realtor is still one of the most efficient methods, but only of your realtor is really skilled, knowledgeable and honest. Here are some questions that you should find out the answers to before you hire anyone for your project:
- Reputation – the best way to find a realtor is through word of mouth recommendations, but when you meet the realtor in person, you should ask the expert to provide references and to show you their portfolio;
- Ask about the realtor’s membership in professional organizations – such membership proves that the realtor is a respected member of the professional community;
- Ask about the contract that you will enter with your realtor – research standard contractual terms, such as commissions and compare the terms usually offered with the ones offered by the realtor candidate;
- Chat a bit and listen to your gut instinct – simple small talk is likely to reveal a lot about the realtor’s personality and will help you decide whether to hire the person you are talking.
