They Can Problem Solve

When looking for a Realtor it's a good idea to look for one who can problem solve. Your area may be having a downturn in house sales, and it may be harder to sell your home. When you pick a Realtor who is a problem solver, they can come up with creative and progressive ideas to market your home to the right buyer and get you the price you want for it, even if the area's houses aren't selling well.

They know how to showcase your home and know where to market it to get a quick turnaround. It is also possible that they can help with the negotiation phase because they can think of ways to get the price you want as well as the terms from a buyer who may be a bit demanding.

They're Self-Motivated With Tenacity

A good Realtor is a self-motivated professional who doesn't need to be called every day to ensure they are doing what they need to sell your home, or find you a new home to buy. They actively do what is needed to market your home, attract potential buyers, reach out to contacts about your home, and book showings each day. If you also want them to find you a new home, they actively search listings for the right home for you too.

They have a great work ethic and will aggressively pursue any lead to get your house sold quickly and with the terms you want. They have the tenacity to get it done and will work hard for you. 

They Are Honest With You

Some Realtors might tell you what you want to hear but not the actual truth about your home and its chances of selling at the price you want. A good Realtor will always be honest with you about what you need to do to sell your home, what price you can expect, and how long it could take to finally sell.

They have a high standard of ethics and they will ensure you know everything you need to know about the sale of your home. You could look for a Realtor that is a member of the National Association of Realtors. This way you know you are getting a Realtor who has high ethics and will always be honest with you.

Sarah's Renting Tips

Although I've never worked professionally in the real estate business, I sure know my way around it. How, do you ask? Well, I have simply rented a lot of different places and worked with a lot of different landlords and real estate agents. In the past 7 years I've lived in 11 different houses or apartments, none of them my own. In finding those 11, I have looked at literally hundreds of apartments. I used to hate house hunting, but now it's kind of fun. You just need to know what you want and the right questions to ask. Hopefully this blog can help you learn some of the tricks of the trade from another renter like yourself.
