The First Place to Look Referrals!
The first place to look for qualified agents is through
referrals. Check with your friends and family about their experiences. Ask them
to refer someone who will meet your needs. You can also check
out the local real estate advertising and guides for leads. If you are searching
for an agent and don't have referrals, be sure to do your homework before you
commit to anyone.
Long Business Career It helps.
Good Real Estate Agents have been in business for a
number of years, they have experience in helping you to understand what your needs
are and finding homes that meet these needs. They are licensed and established.
The Disclosure Statement It's standard.
you find the right agent, he or she will probably present you with a disclosure
statement to sign before any working relationship is created. This is a standard
practice and it protects the agent in any transaction for the work that they have
done. Make sure that you read this statement well, and ask questions about anything
in it you don't understand.
Never sign anything without
reading it, even if it is a "Standard" agreement or a lengthy document filled
with technical terms.
You need to read and understand all
the terms before you put your signature to it. The disclosure statement is there
to protect the agent. Be sure you know what it demands from you.
Choosing the right one.
