Century 21 Princeton Properties
It's a lot like dating multiple people at the same time, so proceed with thought and caution but it is usually better to pick an agent you are comfortable with.
On the other hand, the property you want may just not be availabel.
Try this. Ask the agent you are working with to restart your search just like you were a new client and check the MLS again. It's kind of like rebooting your computer.
Maybe, you will find something that slipped through the cracks with your current agent and find that home you are looking for.
Best of luck!
1) is this actually your agent's fault or is it yours? Is the ideal home actually something that isn't in the price bracket that you're looking in?
2) has the agent been working hard on your behalf?
If the answer is that you have an agent who is incompetent and lazy - change agents. But make sure that this is really the case first and not yourself just feeling frustrated with the process.
Assuming you are searching in a single geographic area, all agents have access to the same listings via MLS. It may be that you and your agent are not communicating properly or your needs and wants exceed your price point. Since it appears that your frustration lies with the results and not the agent, I suggest you sit down with your agent and clarify your goals. Changing agents or using more than one will not necessarily result in finding a home that meets your needs. However, clear and realistic expectations, fully articulated will.
My question would be if he has taken you on many visits (I'm assuming he's been showing properties to you), are you not seeing the type of properties you want? If that's the case maybe just make sure you are both on the same page. Perhaps there was a miscommunication or interpretation as to your desired home,community,time frame etc.
I can imagine working with someone for a long time and not getting results is difficult. He may be thinking the same thing! As a buyer if your goals or needs have changed, let him know. if he's not working for you and providing opportunities to see listings or write offers, answer your calls or emails, then by all means, it's your perrogative to find a new agent and you should. But you really shouldn't need to work with more than one agent. If you sign a buyers agency agreement, you should only work with that agent Good luck, Jim Mellen
