Tips for Finding a Good Real Estate Agent

The current economy does not make it easy to buy or sell your home today. Sure it's a buyer's market, but unfortunately, the banks are not so quick to lend money … at least not how they used to.

And, most of the homes on the market are "short sales" so that the buyer might have to wait several months before actually heard a response from the bank, and the possible response might be "no". You can also visit to find out about the best real estate agents in Vancouver.

However, with so many real estate agents out there, how does one choose the right person? Listed below are some points to look for when deciding the real estate agent.

1. Conduct Interviews

The easiest way to get to know the agent is to talk to them personally. You can talk about what they think about a particular property, discuss their qualifications, ask about their previous transactions, any difficulties they have with previous deals, and find out if their personality is suited to you.

2. Qualification

Be sure to check the qualifications of real estate agents. Does the person have sufficient experience and knowledge, especially in your area? They could have an impressive record elsewhere, but if they have limited knowledge in your area, they will not be of any help to you at all.

3. Referrals

Ask family and friends if they can recommend someone. Ask them for information about their experiences with their Realtor. Remember, no one knows you better than your friends and family and they were not there you can trust more with their recommendations.
