Are You Communicating with your Realtor?
Communicate with your Realtor If you have hired an agent hopefully you hired one that you can communicate with effectively. A good Realtor listens to their client and their needs. However, it is also our job to manage your expectations. Alot of sellers think their homes are worth more than they really are and buyers generally always want more than they can afford. Not always but often.
Some calls from prospective buyers looking for that dream property encounter the problem that they want to spend much less than what is necessary to get that property. This is where good communication is necessary. Some Realtors are afraid to let you down and will try to find the impossible. This is just a waste of you and your Realtors time.
Let your agent know how you want them to communicate with you and how often. Do you want phone calls, e-mails, text messages, or all of the above? Also, it is good to set a realistic time frame for finding a home. I doubt either of you want to be looking for the next few years.
