Whiteboard Topics: How to Decide Whether a Family or Friend Should Be Your Real Estate Agent

by on

Have you ever encountered that awkward moment when a friend or family member thinks they should be your real estate agent, but they might not be the right fit? Real estate is probably one of the biggest investments you’ll make, so it’s important to choose the right agent for the job. Here are some tips for navigating that dilemma without wanting to disappoint or displease family and friends.

1. It’s a business decision. This is not necessarily a personal decision. There’s a lot at stake when choosing the right real estate. The right professional for the job will value that importance.

2. Interview for best choice. It’s not about you who like most, it’s about who can help you achieve your goals in the time frame you want. Interviewing for best choice will allow you to be confident in the plans and tools that the right real estate agent can offer.

3. Generalist vs. specialist. If you’re buying or selling a specialty property, like a lake home, a general real estate agent isn’t going to know all the nuances about that market. Someone who knows your market is going to likely be more effective than someone who doesn’t.

4. Look for unique offerings. Does the real estate agent have a unique skill or quality that no one else has? Compare the agents that can help you locate the property you want faster or maximize the number of buyers for the property you’re selling. Whether you’re buying or selling your lake home or property, our agents at Lake Homes Realty can help provide insight in today’s lake real estate market and guide you in your home journey.
