|Hiring a Buyer Agent|
Hiring a Real Estate Professional is extremely important when looking to purchase a home. When looking for someone to represent you in your search, be sure that person is a Realtor. A Realtor is a member of the National Association of Realtors (NAR). All Realtors must abide by a Code of Ethics, taking accountability for their actions. If a real estate agent is not a Realtor, they do not necessarily have a specfic code by which they work.
Another key component of hiring a Realtor is making sure they are market savvy. They should understand current market conditions and how it can affect you. Since purchasing a home is one of the biggest financial moves of your life, you need to have an advocate who is competent and confident in his/her position. Keeping current with the market includes having a pulse on the mortgage industry knowing of changes in neighborhoods and areas due to building, and having the resources to locate information if not immediately familiar with something. With over 18 years of experience between us, we have the expertise to help you meet your goals.
An increasingly important trait for a Realtor is to realize and apply the impact of technology to his/her own business. With so many people turning to the internet to gain information, shop for homes and interact online, the demand is there for new methods to reach out with instant, two-way communication.
While knowing the market and technology are meaningful, other factors are at play. It is crucial that on top of abiding by a Code of Ethics, your Realtor should be a full-service Real Estate Professional. If the person you hire only works part-time and does not have access to the necessary tools, you are hurting your chances at making a fully informed decision when you choose to purchase.
