The subject of buying and selling homes is a hot topic right now, and it’s trending on the internet. It’s creating so much buzz that Saturday Night Live, and Dan Levy, presented a skit about it.
The hilarious SNL satire confirmed how consumers generally viewed realtors. It showed that realtors are usually talkers who fail to listen and are technologically outdated. One of the buyers’ biggest complaints is that they feel that their realtors aren’t listening to what they want and are more concerned about closing the sale.
Alexis Nickley of The Nickley Group, Orlando’s leading real estate agency, gives professional advice on looking for a realtor. That way, you won’t have a sub-par experience working with a realtor who talks over you and doesn’t take the time to listen to what you want. And in the end, you end up with homes that are nowhere near what you had in mind.
Pro Tip #1: Use a Professional Realtor That Listens
Many consumers looking to buy homes have had an experience or two with a realtor who doesn’t listen. There are also instances where instead of sending them the type of homes they want to see, for example, houses with pools, etc., they send them homes that are the complete opposite of what they want.
“You definitely want to make sure that you’re working with an experienced realtor who is going to listen to you. Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make. And you’re the one that’s going to pay that mortgage.”
Pro Tip #2: Use a Realtor With Top of the Line Technology
To become a realtor, all you have to do is take a course and pass a test. That’s why there is such a vast number of realtors in the market right now. This means that buyers will have plenty of realtors to choose from. However, the downside is, there are plenty of realtors out there who are not that good at what they do.
“You really need to make sure that you’re working with someone who is up to date with the latest technology. You’ll want a realtor that is going to send you homes faster than they hit Zillow. You want to be able to get out in front of those other agents that are looking at homes.”
