Buying or selling a home is no small feat and if you are like most people, you want a trusted advisor by your side to help you every step of the way. The good news is, there are plenty of professional real estate professionals to choose from. The not-so-good-news is, they are not all the same and if you make the wrong choice, it could cost you. In fact, which agent you choose to work with is probably the most important decision you make when you embark on your real estate journey.
Consequences of the wrong choice
From a young age, we’ve been told that our choices have consequences; some are good while others are bad. It’s a true statement in almost every aspect of our lives, including real estate. If you don’t choose the right real estate professional to work with, you may be hit with some unpleasant consequences.
Let’s face it; there’s a lot more to buying or selling a home than meets the eye so you want a Realtor who knows the process inside and out. There are certain factors when working with buyers and sellers that the agents need to know, otherwise it could jeopardize an entire deal.
In addition, you want your agent to be dialed into the market with an extensive network. If they lack either, you may be missing out. Their knowledge and network is your knowledge and network, and you can put both to work for you.
Finally, you want your agent to treat you like you are their only client (knowing that you are not). You want them to be attentive and responsive to you and move according to your timelines. If they don’t respond to you in a timely manner or are too busy with other clients, you may lose out and extend the time it takes to buy or sell.
Advantages of the right choice
On the other hand, if you choose the right agent – like a RE/MAX Advantage Plus agent – you will enjoy plenty of advantages, including working with an agent whose main goal is to understand your needs and get you the best possible results in a timely manner with no headaches along the way.
When you choose to work with a RE/MAX Advantage Plus real estate professional, you work with someone who understands that real estate is more than simply buying and selling property. They understand the different elements that are required to get to the closing table, and will guide you through the entire process, answer your questions along the way and inform you with every step. You’ll know what they know and there will be no surprises.
What’s more, your RE/MAX Advantage Plus agent will negotiate for you, not only on price but also on all the terms. This is important because although price is a driving factor, other terms such as closing date, escrow amount, inspections can also drive decisions.
Make it count
Would you rather make the wrong choice and take a risk getting what you want, or would you rather make the right choice from the get-go and have a pleasant experience? The choice is yours; make it count.
