Everyone knows that buying a home is a serious decision, but choosing the right realtor is just as important.
There are many aspects to consider when hiring a realtor. Heath Anders and Matt Pierce from Anders Pierce Realty described a few tips and tricks for hiring a realtor and choosing your dream home.
First, it’s essential to get along with your realtor. Having a trustworthy realtor can make the home-buying process easier and less stressful.
In addition to being personable and responsive, the best realtors are familiar with things like building restrictions in certain neighborhoods and floodplain locations.
“You want somebody local who really knows the area,” Pierce said.
No matter how perfect a house seems, it’s important to get an inspection before putting in an offer.
“Whether it’s a new house or it’s a 100-year-old house, get it inspected,” Anders advised.
Finally, don’t forget to have your finances in order before you make an offer. Taking the extra time to find a trustworthy lender can make the difference between closing and losing out on a home.
