I’m sure like lots of people you’ve wondered what on Earth it is that your realtor actually does. When the doors close and the phones go down what is that they actually do to move your sale of purchase along? Let’s take a look.
Whilst we all shop for property online our musings are usually limited to the aesthetics of a property, whereas a quality realtor will be researching things like flood zones or previewing properties for relocating clients. The process of property shopping can be a long, arduous one; often they have clients who are looking for a specific type of property semi speculatively so staying on top of these is important.
Any realtor worth their salt will spend a good chunk of their time previewing properties for their clients; there’s nothing like seeing a property and experiencing the neighbourhood in person to get the right feel. This is also a good opportunity to network with other agents.
Pitch sessions are gatherings of agents where listings are swapped to get the word out about certain properties; they are a very important marketing technique. Offers and counteroffers
Both of these are exceptionally important parts of the sale process as they can save buyers thousands of dollars. However if you want to get there this may involve multiple offers and counteroffers all of which need to be written and lodged in a professional manner.
Just because you aren’t present for an inspection doesn’t mean that it hasn’t happened; if you’ve got a good Vancouver realtorthey’ll make it their business to be there so you’ll get to hear first-hand about any structural issues or infestations!
