Ask Good Questions
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?
- What 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?
