There has never been a better time to buy Florida real estate than now, but it has also never been more important to make sure you have a great agent on your side representing you. Though how can you be sure you are working with the right Florida real estate agent, who can really help you get the best deal?
It almost goes without saying that reputation is critical when choosing an agent to help you buy or sell Florida real estate
. This is one of the most important financial decisions of your life so it is well worth taking a few minutes to check out any real estate agent you are considering working with. It will only take you seconds to check out their license online at MyFlorida.com to make sure they both have a valid Florida real estate license and to see if they have had any complaints and if so how they were dealt with. You should also look for agents who are full time agents and members of their local association which identifies them as being held to a higher standard and strict code of ethics.
It is great to know that your Florida real estate agent is educated and experienced, but perhaps more importantly than how many years they have been licensed and how many fancy letters they have after their names it is important to look at how many deals they have done and most critically that they will aggressively go to bat on your behalf to get you the deal you want and deserve.
In the current Florida real estate market if you are selling a home you must select a Realtor that is knowledgeable and proficient at using the most up to date marketing tolls and is willing to invest in actively and effectively marketing your home. While it is true that historically many homes are sold through the MLS, in the current housing market a great Florida real estate agent and company is one who goes out and markets to buyers through many mediums locally, nationally and even internationally.
