How Kim Kardashian Chooses Her Real Estate Agents

Choosing a real estate agent

Whether you are selling your home, looking to purchase a home, or doing both, it is of the utmost importance that you work with a Realtor. Buying a home can be mired in complication and selling a home and can take much longer than anyone wants. If you are considering not choosing a real estate agent and doing it by yourself, just ditch that idea right now. Here are the things you need to know to make a savvy decision when choosing a real estate agent.
Wait for a good fit.
The Association of Real Estate License Law Officials says that there are more than 2 million active real estate licenses in the United States. When you find a realtor, if you also find that you just don’t quite get along with them, don’t be afraid to just move on. The reality is that there are many fish in the pond. Plus, you will likely spend a good chunk of time with your Realtor. You don’t want to deal with someone that you just don’t mesh with.
Stay in your lane.
Don’t go thinking that you should work with a fancy real estate agent who usually works with people above your income bracket. The harsh reality is that of those who finance their home, the average finance around 90% of it. It’s important to work with a real estate agent who knows that that is your reality and will respect your budget and constraints. The worst situation is getting an agent who shows you things that are completely out of your reach.
There is virtue in being young AND being old.
Did you know that about 75% of home buyers use social media during their home search? If you work with an older Realtor, they may not be well versed in helping you navigate this resource. However, if you work with a young Realtor, they may not have built the same relationships to find out about hip, new properties. Keep both of these in mind.
