When starting the home hunting process, it’s important to team up with an experienced real estate consultant. You can learn a lot about consultants by talking to them about their experience. In a short time, you’ll be able to determine if they’re the right person to meet your needs. A few great questions to ask potential real estate agents include:
- In what areas of town and price ranges do you specialize? (Keep in mind that some agents specialize in only one area or one price range.)
- My objective is to buy a house by _____. How will you help me achieve this goal?
- How often will you update me with new property listings?
- How often will you be able to meet with me to look at houses, answer questions, and make fast-acting decisions if necessary?
