You need someone with whom you are not uncomfortable disagreeing with. And keep in mind that this person will at some point, will become quite intimate with your entire financial picture.
Dallas Real Estate
You are going to be spending a lot of time with the investor or agent, so his or her style had better be compatible with yours. Do you need someone easygoing or someone aggressive?
Personally, I am a self-employed aggressive investor and I buys houses in Dallas and have been doing so since 2001. Most people like working with me, but there are those who also appreciate not being bothered at every turn or change of plans. For me, that’s not a problem, as I have dealt with many styles and types of property sellers in my 15 years in business.
Still home sellers ask me how I perform or not perform. My simple answer is always, I Buy Houses in Dallas/Fort worth and I will close on your house as I have closed on over 800 other houses since 2001.
There has not been (1) property that I did not close on. Simple reason is that I use multiple exit strategies, which allows me to sell the house often before it even closes.
So either way you go, choose the most qualified person for the job that you think you’ll work well with. The ideal person for you is an experienced professional who knows your market. Acts in an ethical manner, answers all of your questions. Address your concerns and most important, will listen to you and be your teammate throughout the entire process.
Ask The Professionals
Here are 10 questions that you ask your real estate professional before you hire them to help you with your home search.
- What percentage of your clients are buyers (vs sellers)?
- In which neighborhoods do you primarily work?
- Will I be working with you or handed off to someone else other than you? In other words, will you handle all aspects of my transaction or will you delegate some task to a sales associate or administrative assistant? A knowledgeable assistant can be invaluable, but you want to make sure you can connect with your investor, broker/agent.
- Do you work full-time or part-time as a real estate investor?
- How many homes have you closed on in my neighborhood?
- How many other buyers are you representing now? How many sellers? Hint: the busiest investor or broker often are the most efficient.
- Is your license in good standing? You should check an agent’s certification yourself with your state’s Department of Real Estate . Many state provide this information online.
- How many years of education and experience do you have? Experience and continuing education typically make for better investors.
- Are you also a broker and/or Realtor agent?
- Can you provide me with the names and phone numbers of past clients who have used your services?
Picking a real estate investor is a key decision in the home buying and selling process and I want to see you do it right. There are so many real estate investors out there today. What you need to look out for is the newbie investor. If they cannot share reference’s with you, tell them to take a walk.
