Location is as important in realtor selection as it is in choosing your next home!
Location, location, location are three simple words that come to mind when you think of the most important consideration when buying your next home or investment property. Where a home is located is a key factor in determining its value ─ both now and in the future.
Did you know that location can also be an important consideration when choosing a realtor? In Gerri Willis’s book, Home Rich, she has a list of questions to ask prospective realtors. At the top of her list are the following questions:
- How much experience do you have in my neighborhood or part of town?
- Is this an area you specialize in?
- Do you live here?
She goes on to say that it’s best to choose an agent who is already familiar with your target neighborhood or town. Carefully consider whether they have the inside knowledge and proximity to best serve your needs.
