Selecting the Best Real Estate Agent for You
In a sense, you are going to have to interview people for the position as your real estate agent, just as the hiring position hiring for some other type of position.
When selecting an agent, think back on how well known the agency that they represented before this? Do they have a name that you have heard or seen before, perhaps on flyers, yard signs, billboards, or even local television?
The more well known an agent is, the more reputable they tend to be, and the more reputable they are, the more negotiating power they are going to carry with them when it comes to selling your home for the highest possible price, or purchasing it for yourself at the lowest possible cost; that, of course means a higher rate of commission for them, as well as profiting your pocket as the homeowner and prime beneficiary of the sale.
