Talk To MeJuly 30, 2010
Communication is essential between a realtor and his or her client of customer. As a buyer, you kow what you’re looking for, what is important to you in a home. Now all you have to do is make sure your realtor knows that.
Sit down with her and tell her exactly what you’re looking for in a home. What you must have and what you don’t care about. Do you have to have a pool? Let her know and ther will only be homees with pools in them. Don’t care about a pool, but can’t live without an outdoor theatre and kitchen? Share that. Some realtors have a checklist they can give to their customers that tell them exactly what they must have, what they’re on the fence about and what is at the bottom of the totem pole in terms of importance.
Be vocal in what you want and share with your realtor. Do you like the corner or would you rather have the cul-de-sac? Care nothing for a four car garage but must have the outdoor living room? Let your realtor know and she can tailor the homes you see to your specifications.
A little communication can go a long way when it comes to finding the perfect home.
