Buying and selling a home is an emotional experience, and for many people, an overwhelming event. Finding a Results-Oriented Boise real estate agent who has the expert knowledge to guide you through the process will turn your experience from stressful to worry-free.

If you are selling your home, keep an eye out for recent sales in your area and find out which agent or agency made the sale. An agent who specializes in your area, such as East Boise, may already have buyers looking in your neighborhood. If you are looking to buy, this agent may have knowledge of homes that will be coming to market soon and get you in to see a home ahead of the competition.

When in the market for a Realtor, here are some things you should look for:

  1. Is the Realtor professional? Just like you would when hiring an attorney or an accountant, you want to work with somebody who is skilled and a true professional. You are dealing with a large amount of your money, so you will want somebody who knows how to negotiate and handle these types of transactions. Interview your Realtor to be sure he/she has the people skills, experience and professionalism to get the job done.
  2. Does the Realtor clearly communicate? An expert agent knows what needs to be done and when, and will be available to you to explain the process and answer your questions. If buying, the Realtor will listen to your wants and needs. And, if selling your home, the agent should have a clear marketing strategy.
  3. Does the Realtor really know the local market? A good Realtor will know the current market and trends. Whether buying or selling, the Realtor will understand what buyers are looking for in your area and what the market will bear. Pricing the house correctly will lead to a faster sale, and money in your pocket. Also, getting the price right from the start can possibly lead to multiple offers coming in, and you getting above asking price. Whereas, pricing your house too high will cost you in the end.
