5 TRAITS OF A GREAT BUYERS AGENT

The path to home-ownership can feel less like a path than a journey, especially if you’re a first-time-, out-of-state-, or foreign homebuyer, and especially in a large metropolitan area like Orlando, with its many distinct neighborhoods and housing options. But as with any journey, an experienced guide can make all the difference.

This is where hiring a buyer’s agent comes in. But as with any hire, there are some essential qualifications that you should look for to help you narrow the field and find the agent who’s right for the job. Below are five traits common to any buyer’s agent worth their salt.

TRAITS OF A GREAT BUYERS AGENT – Customer Service

Buying a home is likely to be one of, if not the biggest, financial transactions you’ll ever make. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the gravity and scope of the process, with everything from finding financing to finding a home, to making offers, to closing the deal looming like a series of mountains to be traversed along your journey. A good buyer’s agent is like an experienced mountain guide, helping you surmount these obstacles and delivering you safely to your new home on the other side. If you were hiring a mountain guide, you would look for one who made you feel comfortable, one you knew you could trust. Hiring a buyer’s agent is no different.

At Authentic Real Estate Team, we understand the gravity and scope of the buying process, but through the application of our experience and market savvy, are able to tackle it with confidence and efficiency, taking the burden of stress of your shoulders. As your guides, we’ll work to establish a foundation of trust with you from day one, basing everything we do on the belief that facilitating a home purchase is about building a lasting relationship with the client, not earning a quick commission.

TRAITS OF A GREAT BUYERS AGENT – Area Expertise

Orlando is massive. With well over 100 distinct neighborhoods covering 4,000 square miles, this sprawling metropolis is the fourth largest in the southeastern United States. While this endless variety of locations affords homebuyers a multitude of options, it can also make the selection process feel overwhelming.

A good buyer’s agent is an area expert who can help you hone your sights on the location that best suits your needs and sensibilities, and who knows how the market varies across the region. At Authentic Real Estate Team, our years of experience serving the entire greater Orlando region has given us comprehensive area knowledge that is unrivaled among Orlando real estate teams.

TRAITS OF A GREAT BUYERS AGENT – Flexibility/Patience

Purchasing a home is anything but an impulse buy, and homebuyers often cycle through many changes of heart and circumstance in the course of their acquisition. For this reason, it’s imperative that your buyer’s agent be flexible and patient enough to accommodate these changes, while also offering enough guidance to help you make an educated decision.

As Orlando’s leading real estate team, we know the home-buying process front to back, and the careful consideration that must go into it. We’re here to make sure you’re comfortable with your purchase, sharing our insight with you at every turn, and keeping our ears and minds open to your needs.

TRAITS OF A GREAT BUYERS AGENT – Market Access

When you decide to buy a home, you enter a very competitive game. When the right home becomes available, time is of the essence, and a good buyer’s agent is one who won’t let opportunities pass you by. This requires not only a watchful eye, but also unfettered access to the local market in all its diverse and dynamic manifestations.

At Authentic Real Estate Team, our exclusive access to Orlando’s newest listings, as well as to many pre-listed properties, lets us make sure your perfect home doesn’t slip through the cracks.

TRAITS OF A GREAT BUYERS AGENT – Connections

Your agent isn’t the only professional involved in your home purchase. Lenders (if you’re financing), title officers, and inspectors are among the small army it takes to make the transaction happen. But a good buyer’s agent has multiple connections in all these departments, making sure the stress of recruiting this small army isn’t added to the stress you may already be under. Ultimately, the choice of these vendors is up to you, but a trusted buyer’s agent can help steer you in the right direction.

Over the years, Authentic Real Estate Team has amassed a network of Orlando’s best vendors. From home furnishing to lenders, to closing and even after-sale services, our comprehensive approach takes the legwork out of your purchasing process.

At Authentic Real Estate Team, our customer-first ethic puts your needs before all others, ensuring you make the best purchase for you. And with our comprehensive services at your disposal, your home-buying journey will feel more like a home-buying vacation. So sit back, relax, and let us show you why when it comes to looking for a great buyer’s agent, you can look no further than Authentic Real Estate Team.
