Four Tips for Selecting a Real Estate Agent

Choosing a Real Estate AgentThe Saskatoon real estate market contains many real estate agents whose job it is to help people buy and/or sell homes. If you consider that a home is often one of the largest investments an individual or couple will ever make, it goes without saying that finding the right person to help guide that experience is of the utmost importance.

Not only do you want to find a real estate agent who is experienced and who has a great reputation, but it’s also important that you feel comfortable with the person you choose, and that you feel he or she is trustworthy.

Ensure the person you task with guiding your Saskatoon real estate experience is the right person for the job. Make note of the following 4 tips and simplify your search for a great real estate agent:

Tip #1: How Long Have They Been in Business?

Realtors who have worked in a particular area or region for several years tend to know the market better than those who are just starting out.

Tip #2: Select a Real Estate Agent with the Right Credentials

Real estate agents are licensed by local governments, many of which provide a search tool that you can use to verify a real estate agent’s credentials.

Tip #3: Talk with Recent Clients

Ask the real estate agent you’re thinking about hiring for a reference from a recent client, and call to see what their experience was like. Even if the client had a great experience, you may discover from the conversation that the real estate agent is not what you’re looking for. On the other hand, you may discover that they’re your perfect match!

Tip #4: Review Current Listings and Recent Sales

Ask to see the agent’s current listings and recent sales, paying particular attention to the average days on the market for the properties listed. Clearly, selling quickly benefits everyone. That said, be sure to compare your home with other homes to obtain a realistic understanding of the Saskatoon real estate market.
