Recognize the expertise you’re gaining by working with a real estate agent.

Buying a home can be a daunting task, but a good real estate agent can be incredibly valuable –especially as it relates to finding the right home and helping to negotiate price.

Best ways to communicate with your real estate agent:

Recognizing a Real Estate Agent’s Expertise
It is important to remember that real estate agents are experts with years of experience. They also have insider knowledge on your particular market, such as:

  • -how long a home typically stays on market
  • -whether the home is priced correctly
  • -how it compares to other listings in the area.

Communicating with Your Real Estate Agent
Going through the home buying process requires patience. Refine your search so that you and your agent know what to look for in a home and what you want. Once agents have a specific concept of the type of home to find, they can better serve you.

Perfect Home versus Your Wants
Sometimes you start with a long wish list, but slowly realize that you can’t get everything you want with your current budget. This is where your agent comes in handy. A real estate professional can help you find a home that fits your needs.

Trusting Your Real Estate Agent
Trust is crucial once you begin negotiations.  When it comes time to make an offer, remember that your agent has experience in both the negotiation process and your local market. This makes her best suited to evaluate what is a fair price and you can greatly benefit from her advice.
