Are you considering a move? In any real estate market, Buyers and Sellers downsize, upsize, relocate, invest and purchase their first home. To do that effectively, you need an experienced agent on your side to guide you through the process and make sure you’re getting the most out of your home. So how do you go about choosing the right Burlington REALTOR® for you?
Make the Right Choice for You – Not Someone Else
Simply knowing a REALTOR® doesn’t always mean they are the best fit for you. Your first priority should be to ensure they understand your needs and wants plus be able to provide what you are looking for. Do they know the local market? This proves to be very important as local market knowledge will ensure they are familiar with the best areas, amenities, available properties, and the many insights a local professional should know.
They’re Working for You – So Check References
Make a list of REALTORS® you know, have seen ads for and have been recommended by your family, friends and colleagues. There are always going to be top REALTORS® in Burlington. You’ll see them on billboards, on bus ads, and around the neighbourhood with other listed houses. As you see these top REALTORS®, create a list. Completing your due diligence is part of the process when choosing who to work with. Competition is strong so asking for information is expected, go through your list, take the time to call each of them and ask questions. When you receive the testimonials, ask if you can contact them.
You Get What You Pay For
Maybe you want to find a Realtor that has a lower commission. Everybody wants to make sure they’re getting the best value for the money they have, but when you look at agents who have a lower commission, make sure you’re aware of what comes, or most likely, what doesn’t come with that lower commission cost. There may be services that you’d like your REALTOR® to take care of, but when you pay less, you generally receive less.
Do They Have a Strong Network?
A successful REALTOR® has a thriving network they have built up to get your home in front of more potential buyers. Are they active on Social Media and do you see their activity throughout the community? Ask your REALTOR® how they will market your home to get it sold quickly, for a great price, and with a limited amount of inconvenience.
