Finding a Real Estate Agent or Realtor
A great real estate agent or Realtor is worth their weight in gold and will save you money and help you avoid headaches. A bad agent will waste your time and will give you more headaches. So how do you find a great agent? You can start by looking for real estate agents and Realtors on ColoradoHomesIQ. All of our agents were selected to participate on our site because of their expertise and service.
Location, Location, Location. A good agent should be at the very least familiar with area you are buying and even better an expert in that area of Colorado. Realtor A, may be a great agent in Littleton, Colorado but that doesn’t necessarily make a great agent for a buyer in Longmont, Colorado.
It’s important to work with a real estate agent or Realtor that will work with you to find the perfect home for your family and are not focused solely on their commission. Talk with your agent and ask about their services and have them show you a few homes. You should be able to determine if an agent is right for you after you view a few homes with them.
Most homebuyers don’t realize that real estate agents and Realtors in Colorado are only paid when you purchase a home. Colorado real estate practice is for real estate agents representing the buyer to be paid by the listing real estate agent. Colorado Realtors are typically not compensated if you don’t purchase a home or use a different real estate agent. Therefore, if you like your real estate agent or Realtor please immediately inform any other real estate agent, Realtor, or builder that you do have an real estate agent. Colorado Realtors and agents can also ask their clients to sign an exclusive right to buy contract to protect them from buyers abusing their services.
