You may not always get the best real estate agent the first time. There are times when you thought you hired a suitable agent but after a couple of meetings and transactions, you realize you are not hitting it off. This is when you need to find a new agent to work with.
Remember that hiring the right realtor to represent you to sell or buy a house is essential to ensure success in the real estate transaction you are pursuing. On the other hand, if you put little care in hiring and put less thought when choosing who to work with, you will surely end up with someone who will let you down and leave you hanging especially when you need him the most.
What many home sellers and home buyers do not realize is that working with a Myrtle Beach real estate agent is like building a longtime relationship. You need to be able to feel good at your first meeting. You need to be able to learn to trust each other at the early stages of your relationship. This helps both of you to easily understand each other, making sure you are both on the same page when discussing houses and the real estate market.
If you are having doubts with the competence of the real estate agent you hired, here are nine signs that will confirm your doubts and tell you need to find a new one.
- When the agent offers to sell your house at a high price – You’ll know the agent is suggesting a high price for your house if you get listing from other agents. Note that an experienced and professional realtor will look at how much similar homes have sold for in the same neighborhood and will set a price that is close to this amount.
Setting your house at relatively the same price as other recently sold homes – that are similar to your house – in the same neighborhood will make your house sell faster. An experienced real estate professional understands that your house needs to seem realistic and affordable to attract more buyers.
- When the real estate agent works only part time – You need to be working with someone who is 100% committed to the industry and to their job. If they work full time, they are more knowledgeable about the current real estate market, giving you the advantage that you need in the venture that you are pursuing.
If you are buying a house, a full time realtor will be able to provide you with the most recent listings and homes for sale in the neighborhood you are interested in. If you are a home seller, a full time real estate professional will be able to assist you in selling your home particularly in bringing potential home buyers to your house.
- When the agent knows little about the neighborhood you are buying or selling in – One of the reasons why you hired a real estate professional is to have access to inside information about the neighborhood where you are selling or buying. Real estate professionals either already have this information, especially if they seem centered in doing real estate transactions in the same area, or they can get the information quickly and easily through their professional connections.
If the agent knows little about the neighborhood, then they will be of little help and assistance to you. Hire an agent who you can consider an expert in the neighborhood you are doing real estate transactions in to help you achieve success.
- When the agent does not have prior experience in real estate transactions with your type of property – It is important that you hire an agent who is an expert in their field. Make sure he has worked with previous transactions with the same type of property as the one you are selling or buying. This further ensures success in your real estate transaction. Plus, you can be sure that the real estate transaction will proceed smoothly and quickly.
