Searching for the right real estate agent is almost as important as searching for a home to buy. Real Estate is such a large industry, that most of us can safely say we know at least a handful of agents if not more. While it is always nice to list or buy with a close friend who is licensed, there are a few qualities and characteristics that are extremely important for a seamless real estate transaction.
- Honesty and professionalism are two non-negotiable traits. Having someone professionally tell you their honest, experienced opinion on home price and market information is going to help you start the buying or selling process off on the right foot.
- Local market knowledge, especially in a unique town like Lake Tahoe, is pertinent. You need a Lake Tahoe REALTOR® that can inform you of your home’s value based on historic and present market conditions as well as any government agency restrictions and regulations a property might have. Lake Tahoe real estate is affected by several associations and agency’s working to protect the purity of the lake and with that comes some very important information your agent should be able to share with you during your real estate transaction. In fact, accurate knowledge of the affects of such regulations may play a very important role in making your final decision as to the purchase or sale of a home in this area. Making sure you pick an agent that is well versed in this area is crucial.
- Strong branding and association with a reputable company also goes a long way. Reputable companies hand pick their agents based on proven success rates and quality characteristics. They also provide cutting edge technology and tools for marketing your property. This ensures your home is featured in the most successful real estate resources on a global level.
- Strong connections. A well connected Lake Tahoe real estate agent will have resources other agents don’t have. Knowledge of pocket listings, properties soon to be on the market & good relationships with local real estate professionals are just a few perks.
