Steps For Choosing A Real Estate Agent In Surrey, BC

By Jamie Muck

Like in all other careers, estate agents are also not all the same. Some of them have in depth knowledge about specific types of properties, such as apartments. Others prefer to list properties and not get involved in selling, while still others love to sell. Which one is the best for buying and selling Surrey Real Estate? Below are some possible steps for choosing an estate agent in Surrey, BC.

Always keep in mind that an estate agent is first and foremost a sales person. It is his job to sell properties. That’s how he makes a living and you shouldn’t blame him for doing what he has to do. In the interest of protecting yourself, however, you have to be wide awake when involved in property deals. If you are desperate to sell, don’t tell that to the agent. And if you find a property that you really like, don’t show him how you feel by shouting with joy – it’s not how you go about negotiation the best possible price!

Before you sign any type of contract, first ensure that the agent you are dealing with is in fact licensed and also that his license hasn’t expired. Dealing with an unlicensed agent can cause more legal hassles than you will believe.

Something to keep in mind is that a successful estate agent will have a large number of properties for sale. Beware of somebody with only one or two properties. It might be someone doing the job on a part-time basis and he/she might simply not have the same level of skills than an agent who has been in the industry for many years.

Enquire whether the agent is flexible about his commissions. In the current economic circumstances you don’t have to deal with an agent insisting on the full commission – there are most likely one just around the corner who is equally professional and who will be willing to accept a lower commission.

If you want to sell your property, do not give an exclusive contract to an agent unless you are sure he/she has a very good chance of selling the property. Ask for a list of their recent sales. Then try to sign the contract for 90 days instead of six months or even longer.

The Steps for Choosing a Real Estate Agent in Surrey, BC outlined above should help you identify a professional agent that will keep your best interests at heart throughout the Surrey Real Estate deal.
