You may have invested a significant amount of time understanding real estate transactions, roles and marketing. However, getting to know the real estate agent by asking all the right questions is one of the essential tasks that you should consider. You should interview and ask the right questions, with no expectations. Regardless of whom they are, your newly licensed cousin, friend, brother-in-law. You need the best agent to work hard for you.
Are you working as a full-time real estate agent? To begin, you like to know that you are hiring a full-time real estate agent. The real estate agent's job is no easy; hours are long, and many times negotiations and deals may go late at night. In fact, weekends could be busier than weekdays. Dedicated real estate agents are well aware of the process, and they'll have their full-time attention to their business. It is fair that you hire a full-time agent, so they'll have the time to answer phone calls, including yours. They'll have the time for proper marketing, paperwork and address any issues concern potential buyers.
Is the real estate agent experienced? You need to find out about their experience in real estate transactions. Experience is crucial in the real estate sales business since there is not much to teach you about selling houses in the school. Agents learn many of the negotiation and business dealings while in the business and closing deals. Being a real estate agent for many years does not mean he/she is experienced.
You need to make sure the real estate agent has the experience of closing deals; to be more specific, the number of closing in a year. For example, in Toronto, active full-time agents are expected to have seven or more closings. So you need to address two points, how long have they been doing real estate and how many closings have they achieved.
