Ask Yourself These Questions Before Choosing a Realtor in NJ
Whether you are buying your first property to make into your family home, or setting up another inquiry for a business property, you know that having a strong an efficient Realtor on your side can be the difference between a smooth transaction and a pain! When the experts at The Bernier Group work with prospective home-buyers, we encourage them to consider these questions.
Are you local to the area? How long have you lived or worked here?
If you want the perfect home in your new neighborhood, you need some insight into that very neighborhood! If you’ve grown up in the area where you are seeking to move, or if you have family or friends in the area, you may have good ideas all of your own—however, for those less familiar, a real estate agent can help guide you to the best fit for your new home, including the best schools, safest places, and places with the best social life.
Can I see testimonials from your previous sales?
Few things speak better than past experience! To see how your Realtor stacks up, make sure to check out testimonials from previous sales. Many great real estate agencies in NJ keep testimonials on their home pages, but third-party rating sites like Google or Yelp can give a better view. Of course, if you know someone we’ve worked with, we would encourage you to give them a call!
Can you help me get a great mortgage rate?
If you don’t know where to start with your mortgage and financial planning, your real estate agent can help get you in the right direction. By helping you connect with skilled real estate loan professionals and staying within your estimated home purchase budget, your real estate agent should make the process easy. Some even share tips to reduce your mortgage rate, such as fixing credit, getting bills paid, and more.
Do you have a lot of properties available?
If your real estate agent only shows you one or two properties when you want to see more, find a new agent! When the experts at the Bernier Group meet with prospective buyers, we line up a variety of in-person tours as well as photo and video tours to help you get exactly what you need.
One of the most important things when choosing a realtor is to find one you can work well with. The team at the Bernier Group has years of experience and makes it our mission to be Realtors you can trust! Find out more and see what properties we have available when you call today!
