Use a real estate firm that will keep you updated without you having to ask
North Hills, Ca (PRWEB) August 23, 2012
If there is one thing that both buyers and sellers of North Hills real estate share in common, it is a desire to be more involved in, as well as better understand, their real estate transaction. Red Blue Realty presents some of the best ways to really get involved in the real estate transaction.
Data collected in a Red Blue Realty study suggests that 70% of people feel left in the dark when it comes to buying or selling their home. Check out these 3 easy ways for agent-represented buyers and sellers to get more involved in the process.
1. Personal Research
As the old saying goes, knowledge is power. Whether one is buying or selling real estate, it’s important to learn who all the major players are, as well as their incentives and allegiances. After this, the client should ask their agent for an overview of the process -- whether it be buying or selling North Hills real estate. Having basic knowledge about the process is essential for success.
The internet is an incredibly powerful research tool. For buyers, it helps to examine real estate firms, check out online reviews, look up properties online, take virtual tours, and so on. For sellers, the internet is a valuable, supplemental marketing tool.
In addition, it’s worth noting that real estate agents and brokers have access to market data and statistics that are not readily available on the internet -- there’s no harm in asking for more detailed market information.
The key to a successful real estate transaction is good communication. From the get-go, the client should communicate their desire to understand the process. If the agent seems unwilling, impatient or disinterested, the client should find a North Hills real estate agent who cares.
After all, it is the agent’s job to facilitate and mediate the home buying/selling process. The agents at Red Blue Realty are always available, communicative, and willing.
3. Constant Contact
It’s crucial that the agent keeps their client up to date with any new developments. But this goes both ways -- the client should reach out to their agent as well.
Buyers can, for example, give as much information as possible to help the agent with their search for that perfect home. Likewise, those with North Hills homes for sale should be sure to promptly and thoroughly read any and all serious offers. Sellers should, moreover, not be afraid to ask their agent questions regarding offers or contracts; after all, it’s the agent’s job to understand and explain every detail.
Ultimately, this dual issue of communication and constant contact is vital because it can make or break a real estate deal. If a seller receives a request for a home tour or -- even better -- an offer, then their agent should be reachable and ready to go. On the flip side of the coin, both buyers and sellers of North Hills real estate should be available and prepared in case their agent requests more information, a document needs to be signed, and so on.
Don’t Get Too Involved
While it’s important to be involved in the process, just be careful not to go overboard! While any agent worth his or her salt should be able and willing to answer questions, too many questions can interfere with the task at hand -- that is, buying or selling the home. The agent is, after all, hired to facilitate, speed up and smooth out, the real estate transaction.
Sometimes it’s most appropriate to sit back, relax, and let the agent do their job.
For those with North Hills homes for sale, as well as those who want to find the perfect home, Red Blue Realty offers communicative agents who are always prepared and willing to get the job done.
