How to Make Sure You and Your Agent Are on the Same Page

When utilizing the services of an estate agent, it's not a one-size-fits-all situation. Previously we spoke about ways to choose the best estate agent for you, and in this post, Schutt Law has a few tips to share about continuing a great working relationship.

Start the Communication and Keep It Open

If you have a question about the process, ask it - that's what they're there for. If you find that your agent isn't good at responding to calls, try switching to email. It could be that they are better accessed by alternative mediums, not that they aren't open to communication during the process.

Listen to What They Have to Say

Of course, when you are speaking with them, it's important to listen to what they have to say - whether you like it or not. If they are recommending against a certain process or home improvement, listen to their reasoning and understand that it comes from experience and expertise, the very reason you hired them. While this isn't to say you need to take all advice they give you, it's important that it factors in your own decisions.

Don't Be Afraid to Walk Away

If you find that it just isn't working, don't be afraid to walk away and find a new agent. When it comes to real estate, there's no time to be personal. If you can't seem to reach an understanding about your expectations with your agent, it might be time to find a new one.

Title Insurance in Cape Coral

If you find yourself in the process of closing on a property, make sure you are aware of the full ownerships history by getting your own title search in Cape Coral. Speak with Schutt Law on 239 540 7007 about how a thorough title search not only uncovers any potential inconsistencies, but is likely needed for you or your buyer to complete their mortgage application.
