How important is it to trust your agent?

Whether you are currently looking for an agent, or think you’ve found one, it’s important to ensure you can trust them.

Your home is your most important and valuable asset so it is vital that you have a real, trusting relationship with your agent. This is the key to a happy and stress-free home sale, but how do you find one you can trust? Here are a few key things to look for in an agent which will help reveal whether you really can trust them with your home.
 
  • They will have a face to face meeting with you
If you can’t sit down with your agent and chat about your concerns, hopes and goals for your home move, you’ve lost half the battle. That face-to-face meeting is important for you to trust what they tell you, and it shows they’re willing to put themselves out and do really care.
 
  • They will keep you updated on what’s going on
One of the biggest frustrations among homebuyers and sellers is not knowing what is actually happening. A lack of communication leads you to think that nothing is happening. So an agent that is readily available via email, phone or online chat is worth their weight in gold and will give you peace of mind.
 
  • They have great recommendations and reviews
Check what REAL people have said about them. Chances are, if they could trust that agent, you can too. Get some advice from people who have used them and also look on Google and Facebook to see what reviews they have.
 
  • They will value your home correctly
There are too many agents out there who raise their estimation of the value of your home to gain your business. They are then unable to deliver on their promise of achieving a sale at these prices. Get a few valuations done and ensure the agent shows you evidence of properties, which have sold for the price they have recommended. If they cannot and are much higher than the rest, it may be they’re dishonestly trying to win your business.
 
  • They have a local connection to the community
An agent you can really trust is properly established in their local community. They will have a passion and great knowledge of the area. They’ll have built a reputation for being trustworthy, caring and striving to be the best for each of their clients.
