When you hire a realtor to be your buyer’s agent, you want to make the most of the resource that you have. If you learn a bit more about realtors, it can help you to work with your agent in tandem to get the best deal on the property that’s right for you. Below, you’ll find some tips to help you navigate working with your realtor and make the whole process quite smooth. 


Be Punctual


You should keep your appointments and be on time when meeting with a realtor. While he works for you, you shouldn’t assume that you’re the only client he has. Yes, you’re important to him, but understand that your realtor is very busy and his time should be respected. If you’re running late or need to reschedule an appointment, always make the effort to call your agent to let him know what’s going on.


Let Your Agent Do The Work


While there are plenty of things that you can do to help your agent through the process of helping you buy a home, you should let him do his job. This means that you should never call a listing agent if you have signed on with a buyer’s agent for yourself. Understand that a buyer’s agent could also get passed on commission if the listing agent believes that you are under a dual agency agreement and do not mention your buyer’s agent. It’s important that all contacts are done through your agent. That’s what they are there for! 


It’s also important to note that you should try and avoid going to property showings and open houses without your agent. If you do need to go to an open house on your own, you should let your agent know so he can make the proper arrangements ahead of time. You should expect to sign an agreement with your agent once you decide to hire him as your buyer’s agent. 


Let Your Agent Know What You’re Looking For 


It’s important that you’re honest and upfront with your buyer’s agent. Buying a home is no small task and your agent is your advocate throughout the process. Your realtor will have a basic understanding of your finances, what you’re looking for in a home, and will even know a bit about your family structure. 


So that your agent can best help you to find the home that’s right for you, don’t try and sugarcoat anything. If you see a house you’re not fond of, say so. If a home seems out of your budget, you need to discuss it. The easiest way to find the property to fit your needs is to relay your desires and circumstances to your realtor.
