Whiteboard Topics: 5 Questions To Ask Yourself When Hiring A Lake Real Estate Agent

Choosing a real estate agent without properly vetting them will be your demise when buying or selling a lake home. Lake Homes Realty’s CEO, Glenn Phillips, shares five questions you need to ask when searching for an agent.
  1. Are All Agents the Same? Of course not. The first step is to exclude the ones you don’t want so that you can choose from the ones you do.
  2. What is MY Goal? When considering your goals, decide what’s most important to you. Is it maximum profit? Do you want to stay in your home for as long as possible before you sell? Answering these questions will help you develop a game plan.
  3. Which Agent is Most Capable of Helping Me Achieve My Goal? Find an agent who is particularly skilled in your goal criteria. One may excel at listing your property, but another may be more skilled in buyer relationships.
  4. Which Agents are Focused on LAKE Real Estate? The difference between selling on the lake versus a primary residence is considerable. Find an agent that understands the nuances of lake real estate.
  5. Which Agents can Provide a Pipeline of Out-of-Town Buyers? Most of your potential buyers’ pool will come from out-of-town residents. You need an agent who can prove they have connections to buyers across the nation.
You need a skilled lake real estate agent on your side when buying/selling your lake home. Before you begin your search, be sure to have your specific goals in mind to ensure you are matched with the right one.
