Finding the Right Agent

Not all agents work the same way. The most important attribute of an agent is that he/she is well connected to the real estate industry. He/she should know the market and provide information on past sales, current listings, his or her marketing plan, and at least 4 solid references. In addition, you also want to look for an agent that is honest, assertive, and one that best understands your needs.

Try to go with a local agent. They can better serve your needs; they are familiar with what the local market condition is, the local prices are, and what’s hot or not in your community.

It is also recommended that you engage a Realtor. They follow a strict code of ethics and are members of the National Assocation of Realtors and the state and local assocation of Realtors. Not all licensed real estate agents are Realtors. Also, it is highly advised that you choose an agent that is a member of a Multiple Listing Service for your area. This exposes your property to more than 1 agent and company. Ask your agent to review the set-up of the local or state MLS.
