6 Questions to Ask a Real Estate Agent Before They Help You Buy a Home

Posted by Nestlewood Realty on October 23, 2018  /  in Blog  /  Comments off

Did you know that you can wind up paying more for the same property if your agent is inexperienced? With the right realtor by your side, you can find a house quickly and smoothly, but if you hire the wrong broker, the same buying endeavor can become long and cumbersome.

Much of the home-buying process depends on the role of your realtor, so it pays to ask these 8 things when deciding on the right agent for you.

1.) How long you have been working as a realtor?

You want a professional who understands the ins and outs of the business. That level of expertise only comes with experience! Most realtors don’t last more than two years in the business, leaving 20% of agents do 80% of the work. There is no substitute to experience in the world of real estate.

If the realtor you’d like to hire is still a newbie, there’s no need to write them off. Just ask if there will be a team of brokers available for hands-on guidance with the process. Do not hesitate to ask this question before hiring your realtor.
