Finding a good realtor!

Spokesperson? Nope, they just communicate!

-We’re talking about money and your property, therefore it comes to no surprise that it can be stressful to work with an agent who does not communicate. Time is gold especially in the real estate industry, so you’ll have to find an agent who communicates. They need to tell you where you stand with your current selling and/or buying situation so you can swiftly move on to another buyer and property.

Lazy, nope no place for you! 

-Your agent has to be proactive. Calling your prospective buyers, communicating with customers and chasing new leads, that’s definitely a proactive realtor. You should be well-informed, and that is a key element of a proactive agent.

You talk, they listen

-Your agent should be able to warn you about different things such as a really talkative agent. Agents should have a good ear! You should be able to talk freely with your needs and requests and in turn they should listen to you so they can ask all the questions and definietely not the other way around.

Client motivated

-When you get a good deal, your agent gets a good deal. It’s basically a win-win situation! A good agent will always put you-their client- as top priority. They should make you feel supported and happy not stressed!

Can easily adapt to their clients needs

-Your agent could be a mind reader, do you know that? A good agent must be able to “read” their client. We have technology and smartphones, communication could be made in different ways, e-mail, perhaps even a quick text. A responsible agent must know their client’s preferred method of communication so clients won’t feel ignored.

They know their clients time frame

-In order to build a good client/agent relationship is knowing time sensitivity like an old friend.  Agents must know whether or not their clients are in a hurry to sell, isn’t in a rush to sell or shop around or maybe they want to take time and wait for better fish from the great ocean.

They know their customers selling motivation.

-A good agent must also know why their clients are selling or buying properties. They need to think about their clients, if they are selling to buy or investing? It also helps to know whether their clients are sentimentally attached to the property. A good agent will be able to detect the difference between selling and investing and should be able to adapt accordingly.

They aren’t afraid to give you their past clients as references

-You’ll know you picked a good agent if they are willing to use their past clients as an example. You could ask them for testimonials from their past clients, not hand-picked but literally the last 20 or so clients. They should be able to give you positive feedback from any of their previous clients.

You have all these to check and worry about, let us help you with that! The Realtor in Haddonfield are reliable and fit all the characteristic listed above.

All the reasons why you still need a realtor?

Real estate is just like any other business in this big world. Truthfully it is a very big deal, and every transaction must be conducted seriously bearing in mind the significant financial and emotional consequence from both the buyer and seller. But with the services of technology and gadgets, sometimes people have to ask ‘Do I still need a realtor?’ and we’re here to answer just that!

All the reasons why you still need a realtor

All the reasons why you still need a realtor!

It is convenient

-You might just confusing a realtor and a telephone! Realtor’s full time job is to act as a messenger between buyers and sellers. Meaning they have all the access to a seller’s properties through other agents. If you want to buy then your agent has to hunt down other properties that will suite your taste through other agents. Sure, you could do that on your own, but bear in mind that this business requires the Flash’s like speed so potential buyers or seller may more on to the next hunter if you can’t respond quickly.

The witchcraft of negotiating

-Availing help from agents or realtors could make transactions transparent where in both parties could see each other’s interest which some people may find as a disadvantage. A real estate can be both your guardian angel and a bad guy. They could tell the other parties agent about you ill feelings toward the décor without insulting the homeowner; or they could also prevent bad blood to form. You could be rejected by the homeowner simply because personal reasons.  An agent can help by speaking for your stead.

Contracts are too hot to handle!

Contracts will act as your shield just like how Captain America has his, the offered purchase contract is there to ensure you that you will be permitted to back out of the deal if you find that conditions aren’t met. Your agent deals with contracts and conditions and they have mastered the art of wielding a contract’s power, from when to use it to protect you to when to pull out before your in danger!

They have embodied Pinocchio, they can’t lie!

Okay, maybe they actually can but because of their license they will be bound to common law which is to act on their client’s best intentions or interests and definitely not theirs! And when you do know they’ve lied you can get away with more avenues or you have the option to take it to court if you have proven the lies your agent has sprouted and you’ve made sur that they’ve failed to uphold their duties.

 

You’ve got all these options. Go independent, trust online sites and listings or hire professional help. By the end of the day, you’ve always got the final say. Good luck in your decision making dilemma and as Effie Trinket from the Hunger Games say, “May the odds be ever in your favor!”

Why should I hire a realtor?

Education and Experience

  • The best thing about hiring a professional realtor is the fact that you don’t have to know everything! You could leave it to the hands of your agent.

Agents act like filters

  • Agents will filter out the spam so you will no longer have to deal with phone calls that leads to nowhere.

Neighborhood knowledge

They can find information and buzz around the neighborhood such as comparable sales.

Price Guidance

-Agents don’t pick the price for you, they are there to guide you make right decisions. They help you especially when pricing the property so you won’t over or underprice these properties.

Market Conditions Informant

-Agents can give you valuable information that you probably can’t, such as the average cost per square foot in similar homes, average days on market and sales price average, which will then have a huge weight to consider when you do decide what you want to do.

Professional Networking

-They’re a team and they work with other professionals. However because of legal liability, most agents are hesitant to relay or work with other individuals or companies. They can however give you a list of individuals they have worked with in the past and can provide background information to help you make a wise decision.

Negotiation skills and confidentiality

-Agents negotiate well. Unlike sellers and buyers they can detach themselves from the emotional part of the transactions. They too aren’t messengers and they hold their clients information from other competing interests.

Paperwork

-Aside from the stress of finding a buyer or seller, there is paperwork you have to think about. Well, not to worry, realtors can file an average of one to three inches of paper because a simple slip can land you in court or even a whole in your pocket!

Answers questions after closing

-Smooth rides can have a bumpy road down the journey! The transactions that close with no complications whatsoever can come back and haunt you, it maybe because of taxes or document stamps. You could have questions pop up that you’ve overlooked due to the excitement of closing the deal. Realtors are there to save you like how Spiderman saves Mary Jane.
