Finding the right real estate agent to help you land the perfect investment property is like finding a five-dollar bill on the ground. It’s a miracle when it happens and feels so good when it does. Yet sometimes, the search does not go so well.
Here are a few red flags to keep watch out for when looking to see if your real estate agent is fulfilling your needs:
A poor agent will cause you to miss opportunities
While this may not be the most extensive list of everything your real estate agent may be doing that’s causing you to lose out on a great investment deal, these issues should raise alarms:
- They don’t communicate in a timely manner. Landing a great real estate investment property may mean being the first on the scene, and if your agent is late to the game, that could mean losing a great deal.
- They don’t consider your preferences and limitations. Knowing your price range and where you want to invest or develop is important. If your agent fails to acknowledge that, then they haven’t been listening to what you want.
- They aren’t as experienced as they advertised. You may come to find out your agent lacks some of the skills most beneficial to your deal. That can put you at an extreme disadvantage.
Finding out your real estate agent isn’t who you need can be heart-wrenching – but not every agent is willing to end their contract with an unhappy client peacefully. If that’s your situation, you might need to seek legal help and explore the possibilities.
