Now that you have been preapproved for your mortgage for your new home and determined your wants and needs, it's time to select your Greenville SC area Realtor. Below are some items you should consider when selecting the Realtor you will work with.
- The Realtor you work with should be Internet Savvy-Over 80% of today's home buyers will use the Internet during their home search. The agent you select should have a site that is easy to navigate and provide a complete home search of the Greenville MLS that is updated daily. By using the tools on the web site, you should be able to greatly reduce the time and stress associated with your home search.
- Someone you trust-You should feel comfortable with your Realtor and trust what they say and know they are working in your best interest. Have the Realtor explain buyer agency to you and sign the agreement so that the Realtor will be working for you and not the seller.
- Knowledgeable and Competent- Choose a Realtor that has knowledge of the overall area and can provide you information about the various suburbs and neighborhoods in the Greenville area.
- Experience-Choose a Realtor that has experience in working with home buyers and let that experience benefit you.
In the Greenville SC area there are over 3,000 licensed Realtors. Needless to say that all Realtors are not the same and have various levels of competency. I would like the opportunity to earn your trust and work with you to find your new home.
