Whiteboard Topics: 4 Killer Fails in Hiring a Lake Real Estate Agent

Hiring a real estate agent can be tricky when you don’t know what to look out for. Lake Homes Realty’s CEO, Glenn Phillips, gives four mistakes to look out for when hiring an agent!
  1. Generalist: It’s imperative to look for a specialist when hiring a real estate agent because a generalist may or may not understand the nuances of buying/selling lake homes.
  2. Friendship First: Friendships are important but you must remember that when purchasing a lake home, it’s about business. Again, a specialist would be more beneficial to you.
  3. Family First: We always want to help our family when we can but if they are not experienced enough in lake real estate, it can hurt you in the long run.
  4. Only Thinking Local: There are potential buyers across the nation, not just in local areas. An agent who only focuses on the surrounding area will hinder your opportunities.
Choosing the right real estate agent should be one of the first things on your list when buying or selling your lake home. Remember, this is a business and making the best decision for you, despite the circumstances, is the most important thing!
