Selecting a Realtor | Fort Lauderdale Realtor
When choosing a Realtor to assist you in buying, selling or leasing residential real estate in south Florida is VERY important these days where real estate transactions are quite complicated in regards to paperwork and disclosures especially if you are looking at short sales and foreclosures in south Florida. A good agent can not only save you thousands in a purchase or net you thousands in a sale, but save your precious time.
Questions to ask your potential Realtor:
What is your reputation in the real estate industry? How fast do you return phone calls to other agents? How long have you been in the business? How do you keep up on education in your profession? Are you a Realtor®? Are you full time in real estate?
How do I find a good Realtor to help me?
Usually the best recommendations are from friends or family members who have recently bought or sold real estate in your area. Choosing a friend or a relative to help you just because they are your friend or relative could cost you dearly. This is not the time in history to trust your (most likely) biggest investment to someone who is not familiar with the current customs, procedures and idiosyncrasies of this unique market in south Florida.
If you are having a tough time you could ask the agent you choose if they would work with your friend or relative and quite possibly give your friend/relative a referral fee.
