There are a few important questions to ask a real estate agent before hiring that most Long Island buyers and sellers don’t think about. The answers will give you a much better idea of how the transaction will ultimately go.
Asking how many homes the agent has sold within the last year is a great place to start. It’s also important to ask if their clients were happy with the transactions. These are telling questions that let you know if your agent is competent, provides good customer service, and is a problem solver.
You should also ask how accessible they are as an agent. People want to be able to communicate in a variety of different ways, and you want someone who will be available to take your questions when you have them, and get back to you quickly.
Finally, ask them if they’re going to be in your corner. Are they in it for you, or in it for themselves? You want an agent that will be looking out for your interests, in order to make sure you get the best deal possible when buying or selling.
