YARDLEY, PA, Oct 31, 2014—It's easy to find a real estate agent. However, finding a great agent is a larger feat. In the following article, Wes Foster, Founder & CEO of Long & Foster Real Estate tells us four things you should expect from a great agent.
Competence. “A great agent is thoroughly plugged into the market,” says Foster. They have a thorough knowledge of financing options, have information you can't find online, are up on the latest housing trends, and can share data with prospective buyers on the local housing market and home sales.
Efficiency. According to the All America’s Real Estate Book by Carolyn Janik and Ruth Rejnis, good agents take the time to qualify buyers and show properties in their price range. “They plan showing routes carefully and have pre-inspected most properties,” comments Foster.
Ethics. Good agents also adhere to a strict code of ethics. According to Foster, they avoid high-pressure sales tactics, refrain from showing properties that do not fit your needs or goals, and alert you to problems about the condition of the property. And they show respect for other agents and real estate firms by not “bad mouthing” them.
Timeliness. In today's high-tech world, it's easy for a good agent to quickly return your calls, texts and emails. “While agents are people too, and need their time-off, a great agent won’t leave you hanging for three days,” says Foster.
