Great responses from Bill, Jill and Lisa. I REALLY like Lisa's reference to understanding the 'STRATEGY' that your REALTOR has in place. Effective strategies rely on market knowledge, understanding the obstacles, creating solutions and being active not reactive. A good strategy keeps the homeonwer in the drivers seat and in command of the negotiations. ---
What should you be asking? ----You should not ask a single question.-----What? That's CRAZY!!!!...----------Home owner actually only have four maybe five questions that need to be answered. The REALTOR you hire should know these question INTUITIVELY and will assuage them fully in their presentation. The right REALTOR will be in tune with what is REALLY important to you.
----------Of course I am not going to list those question here for everyone to see. But, I will present one.........You want to know that the agent you hire is protecting you....You need to know, "Does this REALTOR HAVE MY BACK?".......In the presentation, the REALTOR will share or demonstrate the measures taken to keep you from harm. I can be as simple as reviewing your social media presence or making sure your home is pre-inspected to usurp the shock of what may be unknown to you. ----------------Too often the homeowner thinks the agent who performs the best tricks is the most qualified. The reality is, the one who knows your purpose, understand your values, sheilds your vulnerabilities and has a strategy, is the one who will deliver what you really want to hire........Best of success, ------Annette Lawrence, Broker/Associate Remax Realtec Group, -------- Palm Harbor, FL------ 727.420.4041 ------http://FIrstLookHomes.us.
