bad real estate agent

The stakes are high when it comes to selling your home and it is a huge financial decision that requires absolute expertise. The tales of someone who has encountered a bad real estate agent can be a guide to avoiding the same.

You are advised to hire the right fit for the job to avoid tales in the long run. In this process, you need to be on the lookout for someone who would walk with you and not against you. It is not a very good feeling to fire someone, but it would be worth it to fire the wrong realtor for your good. The recommendations of friends and family members might not be a good fit but at times you don’t have to put up with it. If you are already involved with a bad agent, it’s not too late to make a U-turn

A Good Real Estate Agent Knows the Market

If you have any experience working in an industry-related job, you should are expected to be conversant, with the changing trends in your marketplace, and so should your realtor. Lack of familiarity with the market is common among realtors who are inexperienced or work part-time.

It is in your best interest to hire a real estate agent who works full-time in the real estate marketplace. You would be able to tell the level of experience through the accurate data that they are able to provide you per time.

There Should Be Timely Appointments

Occasionally things come up, that were not planned in the whole lineup of scheduled events. A good realtor should be able to set appointments and keep up with the meetings too. A realtor’s timeliness can either make or break the entire process. If you are always the only one showing up for events like appraisals and open houses and your real estate agent is nowhere to be found, then it’s time to fire someone and hire another.

Things are fast spaced in the real estate world. Therefore, you need a clear medium of communication established from the onset. Your realtor must be responsive to calls and messages, and you should not have to wait hours, not to mention days before you get responses to your inquiries.

There Should Be Established Communication Channels

When you observe delayed responses to minor things, you should take immediate action to avoid losing a good deal. The worst part is when you get absolute silence from a realtor, it is a sign for you to move on. The communication channel is one of the most important factors.

There Should Be Timely Results

As you put in the required work from your end, your house shouldn’t have to sit too long on the market. If your realtor is keeping the end of his deal by putting your house in front of potential buyers, then you should see clear signs.

Signs of progress include interest from potential buyers and a couple of visits to your property. The most important sign of progress in due time is successfully getting your house sold.
