|Here’s How to Find a Real Estate Agent in Newport Beach When Buying a Home |
Finding the right real estate specialist requires balance between rapport and industry experience, if you’re buying a home in Newport Beach and Orange County area.
You should choose someone you like, as you’ll be spending the next month or so working with this person. But while chemistry is important, a good background in the real estate industry also matters.
Patrick Tenore Sr., who has nearly four decades of experience and proven track record in the industry, says you need someone who will listen to your concern and will not waste either of yours or his time on properties that you cannot afford or do not meet your requirements.
In this case, it isn’t enough that you call the very first real estate specialist you find on the web or whose lawn sign is too big that you can’t help but notice.
Instead, ask family members, friends or colleagues for references that you can verify. You should also interview agents with a broad portfolio, good personality and (smart) skills that impress you.
Tenore adds finding a real estate agent with at least five years of experience, although those with fewer years don’t mean they’re not going to do a great job; it’s just that they may not have a large client base as compared to those who have been in the business for quite a while.
“Also, less experience may also mean more work for you.”
Following, you should also look a licensed and fulltime real estate specialist. For the best results, you may want to check with the National Association of Real estate agents.
And speaking of experience, look for a fulltime agent, meaning they should be doing this job not as a part-time venture, as that may mean that they have another job or that they cannot devote full attention to your concerns, too. [That’s not a good sign!]
Additionally, look for one that is in the local real estate game in Newport Beach and Orange County, as it means that this specialist knows the area, where you are finding your dream home.
It is not only that such an agent is updated with the market trends in the area, but it also means that he knows of locations and properties with the features you’re looking for, including nearness to a school or a gym, or a location with good transportation system or proximity to your office (if you’re transferring to the area for work).
So there you have a couple of the most important tips to take note of when looking for the right (and local) real estate agent in Newport Beach and Orange County. Refer to this guide and have the most satisfying buying experience of your life.
