How to Effectively Work with a Real Estate Agent

Real Estate agents are professional experts who commonly have years of experience, not just in their job but in specific housing markets and neighborhoods.   Here are a few pointers that can help you get the most out of your working relationship with a buyer's agent: 

Your agent is your representative.   Just as a seller selects a sales associate to list a home, your agent is there to represent your interests throughout the entire process.

Talking over what you want in your home, even walking through homes that may not be quite right may require patience, but ultimately can help you and your agent refine what is most important in your new home. 

Expect your buyer's agent to analyze information such as comparative market data and help find properties that are fairly priced in today's market.

When the time comes to make an offer, trust the experience your agent has in the negotiation process. Your agent also can help with necessary paperwork, such as wording a purchase agreement.

The point of hiring an expert is to benefit from his or her advice.  Be sure to sign a Buyer Agency Agreement to take advantage of all of the services offered by an agent.
