You should choose an agent that you feel comfortable with and who you can trust to look after your best interests. Responsiveness is a virtue. You should expect your agent to respond quickly to your inquiries and your agent should be diligent in scheduling appointments. Be cautious in using an agent that has a second job or treats real estate like a part time job. You want a full time professional working for you. Of course a work/life balance is important and you are likely not your agent’s only client. You still should expect regular communication and prompt responses to your inquiries.
You should also communicate your expectations regarding communication and feedback during your home search. Which communication method is preferred, phone, email, or text. A good agent should help you feel informed and in control throughout the process.
Buying a home is traditionally the largest investment a person or family will make. It can be a complicated and time-consuming process. It can also be a lot of fun. A buyer’s agent is a seasoned professional. They know what to look for and what questions to ask. They add a constructive, dispassionate point of view to the buying process. Plus, by working with an agent on your purchase, you gain their knowledge of the local real estate market and neighborhoods. Typically, the seller pays for the buyer’s agent commission so having a licensed professional that is representing your best interest will almost always cost you nothing.
