Online Real Estate Agent Checklist

  1. 1. LookieHomesLA.COM<br />Online <br />Real Estate Agent Checklist<br />
  2. 2. Online Real Estate Agent Checklist<br />The web can be intimidating at times, especially for those searching for a real estate agent. Many online real estate web sites are out there, claiming they are the best for supplying agents to fulfill your home buying or selling requirements. It's important to realize what is critical in selecting the correct online agent, and not all sites have agents to fit this criteria.<br /> The following is a checklist that can help you in the search for that perfect agent:<br />
  3. 3. Online Real Estate Agent Checklist<br />Hand selected - Look for agents that are selected and referred to you by the web site. Beware of sites that have computer generated agents that pop up when your city is selected. <br />Often times, these are agents who have paid for the privilege of being advertised on the site, and are not experienced nor knowledgeable. It is better to call the web site company and have them refer you to an agent that can help you in the area you desire.<br />
  4. 4. Online Real Estate Agent Checklist<br />Experience - Only deal with agents who have a vast amount of experience. It is recommended that agents have closed at least 25 transactions to even be considered as a candidate. Some web sites put up newbies or agents that have problems getting leads. <br /> These are not the agents who can close your deal with your best interests at heart. These are agents that have little knowledge in the real estate industry and can actually cause the home buyer or home seller major stress and economic loss.<br />
  5. 5. Online Real Estate Agent Checklist<br />Area Expert - The agent must be familiar with your city location and have the knowledge required in order to give you the tips and strategies required for buying or selling your home. Be cautious of agents who claim they are experts in your area, only to find out their main pool of expertise is 50 miles away. <br />The agent may not have the knowledge required to show the home buyer neighborhoods that may be desired or homes that just came on the market and not yet listed on the public MLS. The local agent experts have their feelers out better than real estate agents who aren't in the area on a regular basis.<br />
  6. 6. Online Real Estate Agent Checklist<br />4.Non Discounted - The best agents have experience, education, honesty, networking skills, negotiation skills, communication skills and don’t need to discount their services. Sometimes an outward saving of commission doesn’t save on the entire transaction as a whole. The discounted agents may not fully serve you, as it is a numbers game to them. The savings they claim you can have, is often times not gained. Typically, their non-experience will cause accepting low bids on the house you are selling or only showing you homes that offer a large commission from the other party. Their non-experience in negotiation techniques may actually cause the deal to be short-changed, whereas the full service agent will typically allow for the home buyer or seller to save the most money possible.<br />
  7. 7. Online Real Estate Agent Checklist<br />5. Professional - Be sure the real estate agent is professional in their services and able to work with you in a friendly manner. The home buying and selling experience can take several months, and the more they handle problems in a timely fashion, the less stress you will feel during the process.<br />
  8. 8. Online Real Estate Agent Checklist<br />Real Estate Agents are required to be good negotiators and follow-through type of professional people. Real Estate Agents carry a lot of responsibility on their shoulders and need to be sharp and extremely savvy to ensure successful closing. <br />It is best to select agents who are full-service agents who can save you money during the process as compared to discount agents who sometimes can not save your the money due to your transaction being a numbers game. You also have to enjoy working with them. Let the real estate web company refer you to that top agent who can fit your needs best.<br />
