To help me help them it would be great to have the following right out of the gate:
Pre-approval for a known amount or cash
A list of their required specifics on the area and property type they are in need of.
Provide information on family size including family pets
With the above information and a few specifics, I have the tools to get to work! I am enabled to provide my services in searching, obtaining, finding, and showing. The collection of information that meets the buyers needs, financial guidelines and projections are invaluable and can only be provided by a professional real agent in the know.
It is also an agent's responsibility to prepare my buyer's with all available information on the presented properties so they can determine which property is best for them.
