Four Tips for Selecting a Colorado Luxury Home Buyer’s AgentPosted by TheHomeCartTeam on Sunday, July 1st, 2012 at 4:19pm.
If you’re planning a move to Colorado and looking for a luxury home, there are some important things to do well before you start looking for the perfect property, and the main one is finding the perfect agent. There’s no shortage of real estate agents in the state, but for people looking for a Colorado luxury home, finding the appropriate agent is very important and can make the difference between looking at homes that fit your dream description and wasting time looking at many that do not. Here are the top five things to look for in a buyer’s agent.
This may seem obvious, but it’s really surprising how many people use agents whose licenses are expired or who have a large number of complaints registered against them by other buyers. The easiest way to do this is to get online and do a search for the agent’s name who you are considering using. Check out what others are saying about the agent. If you find lots of negative information, it’s probably best to consider someone else. While searching online, take a look too at the types of houses that the agent typically sells because using an agent who sells a large number of Colorado luxury homes is preferable to someone who specializes in other kinds of properties.
While looking online and figuring out what types of properties the agent specializes in, check out what people are saying about the agent’s knowledge about the local luxury homes market where you are looking to move. It’s important that the agent is very knowledgeable when it comes to luxury homes and this should be obvious from both the agent’s website and information from previous buyers.
Local Market Expert
It’s important to find an agent in the local market, not a market that is 20 miles or more away. If you have narrowed down the city and area where you would like to live, be sure to find an agent who works and preferably lives in that market. If you haven’t, consider working with several agents, one in each area you are interested in. This will ensure that the agent has an insider’s perspective on the market and understands the local neighborhoods.
Finding an agent that will tell you the truth is very important. This goes for everything from the contracts and negotiations to things like the ugly flooring in a particular house or some hidden issue that may mean a buyer wouldn’t want the house. This is something to look for when reading the reviews of the agent online.
If you are looking to buy a Colorado luxury home, the most important member of your search team is your agent. By ensuring that he or she is a professional who specializes in luxury homes in the market where you want to live, you will be a lot more likely to have quick success at finding the perfect home. The easiest way to check out agents is by using online resources and checking out reviews of the agent written by other clients.
