Buying or selling a home is one of the biggest financial decisions a person can make. When it comes to choosing a professional to assist you with your transaction most people do little or no research. The most popular way people find a Realtor is by a referral from a friend or family member. In some markets, the area is flooded with real estate agents. To give you an example there are over 45,000 real estate agents in Maricopa and Pinal County. So the chance is you do not need to look far to find a Realtor. You probably already know one or have a family member that has their license. There is a downside to having too many Agents. Just because they are your friend or cousin it doesn’t mean they are the best Realtor for you. Out of the 45,000 mentioned before, less than 1000 did more than 5 transactions last year. A good friend does not mean they are a good realtor. Getting into the business of real estate is not hard. Making a living and succeeding in real estate is very hard. So when it comes to a major financial decision it’s best to find a Realtor that is more experienced over family or friendship.
The other downside of using a friend or just trusting a referral to find a Realtor is that person might not be the best fit for you. In today’s market, you have many options when buying or selling a home. Without interviewing and researching multiple agents you might find yourself overpaying to sell your home. How real estate is bought and sold has drastically changed since the internet. Many agents still charge a fee structure that is outdated costing home sellers thousands of dollars. With a little bit of research, you will see that more and more people are using Realtors that charge a flat fee while still offering the same full-service others are charging a high percentage. Why pay more for the same services? You want to find a Realtor that is experienced, knowledgeable, and who works on a modern pay scale appropriate for today’s market.
