Choose a Real Estate Agent

Buying a home in Silicon Valley requires making many important financial decisions, understanding complex issues and completing a lot of paperwork. It helps to have an expert in your corner when undertaking such a large purchase.

The Properties in Silicon Valley team will be happy to guide you through this process, and provide you with access to property listings before they hit the general market.

Here are some factors to consider when choosing your real estate professional:

  • Look for a full-time agent – one who has experience completing transactions similar to yours.
  • Interview a few agents: Are they familiar with the area in which you are interested?
  • Ask how much time the agent will have for you, and if she is available at night and on weekends.
  • Ask about the agents’ credentials and education: A good agent will continually strive to improve and gain knowledge of the latest real estate trends and hold the highest designations in their respective fields of expertise.
  • Does the agent return your calls promptly? Time is of the essence when attempting to buy a home.
  • Ask for a list of properties the agents have sold or a list of references.
  • Choose an agent who listens attentively to your needs and concerns. Pick an agent with whom you feel comfortable.
