 Tips to Hiring a Tooele County Real Estate Agent Who Will Work for You

Good Tooele County real estate agents can be valuable partners when buying or selling a home. Their marketing efforts, hard work, knowledge and negotiation skills are huge assets when house hunting or selling your home.

Below are some tips to help you hire a Tooele County real estate agent who will provide the best service for you: It should not surprise you that these tips are based on years of experience in Stansbury Park, Grantsville Utah and Tooele City, selling homes and condos to a variety of different types of clients.

1.      Make sure your expectations are clearly spelled out. Buying or selling a home involves a great deal of money and that has the potential to cause a lot of stress — especially if you feel your agent isn’t living up to your expectations. To avoid this problem, share your expectations with agents during the interview process. Be as specific as possible. Do you expect them to email you once a week with updates? Perhaps you want them to call you with feedback each time they show your home. Don't forget to ask your agent what they expect from you.

2.      If buying a home, ask how your professional will find homes that meet your standards. A good Tooele County real estate agent will take into consideration your budget and your needs. Then he or she will narrow down the choices to save you time and effort. Your agent should provide you with access to a website with all of the homes for sale in your area and that will allow you to search on your own all the listings that meet your criteria the day they come on the MLS, and be prepared to schedule a showing.

3.      If selling a home, agree on a marketing plan before you sign. Selling a home in today’s market requires a well-thought-out marketing strategy. An easy way to ensure prospective agents are up to the task is to ask to see their marketing plans in writing. A professional agent will have a clear strategy that includes both online and offline marketing.
