Consider for a moment that for most people in the Sherwood Park area, the purchase of a home is the largest investment of their lives. Taking that into account, I want to share an interesting fact. 80% or more people put more time into shopping for fruits and vegetables than they do for a real estate agent. More often than not, a buyer or seller will look in the phone book or get a referral from a friend. That is all well and good, however, keep in mind that this is your money and probably the largest investment you will make. Doesn't it make sense to have someone you trust and are comfortable with?
A lot of people will rate their experience with a real estate agent as OK or bad. There are some that refuse to even consider using an agent due to a prior negative experience. The bottom line is, you will only happen upon a good agent if you are proactive and seek out the agent that has all the qualities you desire.
If you are willing to interview several agents, you will be able to learn the strengths and knowledge they can utilize in order to help you find a property. When the interview process is complete you will find that the stress level will decrease and you will be able to breathe a little deeper knowing you hand selected the best person for the job. If you are still unsure of how valuable an asset an agent can be, please go back and read the preceding in this article on why we believe you need a Realtor®.
