If you’re preparing to put your Dallas-area home on the market or are considering the purchase of a Flower Mound, Frisco, or Denton home, it’s vital to have the right real estate agent in your corner. At Team Nelson, we realize that most people who haven’t been through the buying or selling process assume most realtors are pretty much alike – but this couldn’t be further from the truth!
Do you want a seamless process, or one that’s stressful and chaotic? You get to do the choosing; however, here are a few things to think about before you choose a Flower Mound real estate agent.
Is the agent genuinely dedicated? An agent who works full-time in the real estate industry may be more dedicated, simply because it IS the area he or she chose as a career. A part-time agent may not be available any time you like, so it’s important to be certain that the agent you choose is dedicated to working with you on your schedule. In addition, agents who have chosen to dedicate their focus to real estate full-time are generally more experienced.
Is the agent you are considering enthusiastic? Not only should you feel comfortable with your agent’s personality, your agent should be truly enthusiastic and engaged. Today, things are much different from the way they were a decade or two ago. Older buyers or sellers may prefer communicating by telephone, while younger couples or young families may be more comfortable with texting or email. Ultimately, you want a real estate agent who suits your personal style, and works with you in a way you feel comfortable with and confident about.
Has the agent worked within your market? Some agents in the Dallas area work in low-end markets or average markets in regards to home price, while others work in the upper-end market. It’s important when choosing a realtor that he or she has experience with listing and selling homes within the market you are looking to buy/sell in. Knowing comparative home values in various neighborhoods is important when it comes to selling a home.
