Thinking of Selling?
You know buying or selling a home in Calgary could very well be one of the biggest transactions of your life. You need the expert assistance a good REALTOR® can provide for you to make this as positive an experience as possible.
Your REALTOR® is someone that you need to trust to look after your best interests and who will work their hardest to get you the best price on your new home. You must trust them to be YOUR advocate.
Don´t rely solely on recommendations from Family and Friends, but gather a list of potential REALTORS® and conduct interviews to determine the best professional for you. Some of the questions to ask are:
- How long has the REALTOR® been working full time in the industry? Many of the agents out there are part time only, and work other jobs that take away from their commitment to you.
- What awards, special designations or qualifications do they have? Are they a licensed REALTOR® or a Real Estate Associate – there is a difference.
- Find out what resources the REALTOR® has access to. Members of large real estate companies may not necessarily have more connections or more resources. They should be a member of the local real estate board and have access and a good understanding of the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). As well, find out what their strategy for selling homes is – some agents say they have a strategy but wonҴ get into specifics.
- How well does the prospective REALTOR® know the market? If you are looking to purchase a high–end, million dollar home, you need a REALTOR® who knows in that market. The same works in reverse. Do they know the area? A REALTOR® who understands your precise market and the neighbourhood will be better equipped to answer your questions and find you the right home.
- Do you feel comfortable with the REALTOR®? Your personal feelings upon meeting a REALTOR® should play a large part in whether you decide to use them. Your REALTOR® is someone that you need to trust to look after your best interests and who will work their hardest to get you the best price on your purchase. You must trust them to be YOUR advocate 100%.
