If planning to buy or sell a home soon it’s time to start thinking about choosing your real estate agent! The first action step is to find and select a qualified real estate agent that is also a good personal fit.
Most of us know of one or two agents and often the decision for choosing your real estate agent is just calling the first one that comes to mind, with no questions asked! It’s fine to consider someone you know, but we recommend following up that action by asking for referrals.
Before choosing your real estate agent do your homework and call or check on those referrals before you make your final selection. Call some of the realtor’s past clients and verify the agent has a successful track record. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and do what’s necessary to insure making the best choice possible.
If buying or selling a Santa Clarita home it’s extremely critical the agent be experienced and trained in all aspects of residential real estate, including distressed property transactions.
Choosing your real estate agent is even more important when there are many distressed properties on the market. This is when experience and training really comes into play and can be the difference between your success or failure, especially when selling your home.
