This Article On Helping Your Realtor And Lender Help You Was Written By Illinois Realtor Thomas Falloon
I know sometimes it can be hard finding the right Realtor. I also know that once you have made that decision, there are some tips that can make your Home Buying Partnership more successful. Helping your realtor and lender help you on your home purchase will relieve much added stress in the home buying process and mortgage process.
Busy Realtors in the business tend to assume everyone knows the proper procedure in looking at homes. I have found this topic to be rarely discussed between Realtors and clients but an area that is definitely worthy of being addressed.
Helping Your Realtor And Lender Help You: Meeting Another Real Estate Agent
If you meet another agent, be sure and tell them you are already working with an agent.
If a real estate agent does not ask you if you’re working with another agent, then promptly volunteer that information. Real estate agents are trained to ask you this question but sometimes they don’t, they forget, or are afraid to hear the answer. Be sure and tell them immediately.
Looking At New Homes (Model Homes Or Inventory)
If you attend a New Home Model/Open House without your agent, give your agents business card to the model home agent. If you do not have a business card, you should sign the guest book with your agents name next to your own with their number. Not only will this help your agent get the most detailed information for you, it will protect you from giving out your personal information. Your agent knows the questions that should be asked of the builder. In some cases the builder will not allow you to have your own representation if you do not fill out their card with your agents name. Be sure and do this.
Do Not Ask Another Agent To Show You Property
Your real estate agent is eager to help you. Part of your real estate agents helping you, is to send you properties for consideration. First drive by the property to see if the area neighborhood is of interest to you. Then schedule an appointment for a showing with your agent. Some appointments can require a 24 hour notice, but many are much shorter. Your agent will also show you any home that you have located yourself.
Do Not Directly Call The Listing Agent For Information As They Represent The Seller
Your agent will be able to get more detailed information from the listing agent then you, as they have direct access to the listing information through the MLS. There will be no confusion if your agent calls the listing agent.
Follow Open House Protocol If You Go Unescorted
If you attend an Open House without your real estate agent, give your real estate agents business card to the agent hosting the Open House. If you do not have their card, you can sign their guest book with your agents name next to your own. Again not only will your agent have access to the MLS for detailed information about the property, but this protects you from giving out personal information.
