According to recent statistics, the average person moves about into about 11 different living spaces during their lifetime.
We know that moving and selling your house can be incredibly stressful experiences.
Working with the right real estate company can make the process much easier. But how do you know you’ve found the right one?
Read on to find out.
1. Do Your Research
With everything else you have to get done, it can be tempting to just go with the first real estate company that pops up in your search engine results.
But that company won’t necessarily be the best fit for you. It can even lead to working with a fraudulent company or agent. In general, it’s a good idea to come up with a list of at least three potential realtors you want to learn more about.
To find these three companies, go online, look into local directories, and even ask your friends and family for their advice.
You want to have choices, so you can leverage offers against each other and ensure you’re making the right choice.
2. Ask for References
Of course, every real estate company will fill their website with glowing testimonials from past clients. But should you really look exclusively at the reviews the company wants you to see?
To ensure you’re really getting an unbiased opinion, ask the companies you’re considering working with for references. Then, connect with these references.
Make sure you ask how long the house took to sell or how many listings they were shown. Additionally, inquire about how responsive the company was to emails and calls from clients. Finally, be sure you ask about any hidden, additional fees that haven’t yet been made clear to you.
If these companies have less than glowing references, or if they’re unwilling to provide you with a list, it’s time to move on.
3. Check Out Their Current Listings
The final way to make sure you’re picking the right realtor?
Take a look at their past and current listings. Is their website pretty empty? If so, they might not have the experience you need to get your house sold or find your dream one.
Too many listings, and they may not be able to give you the time you deserve as a client.
It’s also important to scour a company’s listings because you’ll get a good idea of what kind of homes they work with and will likely show you. Even wonderful companies sometimes just don’t deal with homes that will work with what you’re looking for.
Their listings will tell you whether you’re not they’re a good fit for you.
