5 Tips On How To Find The Right Real Estate Agent
There are thousands of real estate professionals in Denver. You probably already know a few from your social circle. You may have found them through referrals from your neighbor, friend or even from a family member.
Here are some online tools and tips to help you do your due diligence on the that you hire.
First things first, request for the list of properties that have been listed and sold from the past year with contact information of the people they’ve worked with. Ask your agent if there have been people who were pleased or disappointed with their services. If you are a seller, you should consider the agents who specialize on the property that you’re selling. You should also ask how long the property has been listed on the market before it was sold.
Pick an agent who has been recognized for his dedication and hard work. Those agents have gained the approval of their colleagues because of their outstanding devotion to their careers.
Real estate professionals can specialize in different areas. They have worked hard to complete trainings and workshops in order to excel in their specific fields. Here are what some of these designations mean:
CRS (Certified Residential Specialist): Completed additional training in handling residential real estate.
ABR (Accredited Buyer's Representative): Completed additional education in representing buyers in a transaction.
SRES (Seniors Real Estate Specialist): Completed training aimed at helping buyers and sellers in the 50-plus age range.
It would be best to know how long the agent has been working in the industry. You may find out through checking their online profiles or better yet, by simply just asking them. You should pick the agent who specializes in the particular area you desire, and who is knowledgeable with the latest market trends.
You may visit real estate sites like Realtor.com to see if there are listings listed under their name. You may also look closely at the agents’ listings which are similar to the property you want to purchase or sell. Do they belong to the same area? Is the price almost similar? Does the agent have enough listings to indicate a healthy business but not too much that you will be out numbered?
Don’t forget to ask about the properties in your neighborhood that are on the market. The agent must know some of the properties that are for sale in your area. You can have a little discussion about recent sold or just listed properties in your area. If your agent can provide you with a few details about that, then there’s no doubt that he/she is very much particular with not only the area but with the properties they are working with.
Ask them about their negotiation skills and how they have been trained to give you the best results possible in the real Estate transaction.
