As a realtor, it is our responsibility to avoid such red flags in our client’s house hunting journey because this will help us gain the trust of our clients. The number foundation we need to build with our clients is their trust in us – real estate agents.
Make their house hunting journey comfortable and smooth. These are the red flags you need to check as a realtor:
Make Sure That the Pricing of the House Is Right
The most noticeable red flag in this industry is when you give a listing price that seems too good to be true. Home sellers may seem enthusiastic about selling their houses, but as agents, we need to make sure that the price our clients pay is right and just. We don’t want our clients to buy a house at a very affordable price and suffer the consequences of hidden house issues.
The Listing Doesn’t Have Many Photos.
As a realtor, check the advertisements of these home sellers. Did they include lots of photos? Do you market a house without seeing the corners of the house? You gather the house’s history and present the details to your client.
There are Also Some Other Houses For Sale on the Same Street
If you notice that some houses were put up for sale on the same street, there may be a reason. Try to talk with other home sellers and ask why they sell their houses. There might be some problems in that area. Help your client discover these problems instead of letting them find out after buying the property.
If the House is Obviously a Flip
If the house you are looking into was bought and renovated by a developer, make sure that you will check and gather information from the person who renovated the house. Keep in mind that there are chances that some corners have been cut in the duration of renovating the house. In addition, there might be some problems that were unveiled during the renovation process. After gathering this information, you have to let your clients know about these things.
These are the common red flags that clients mostly overlook. As a realtor, we help them identify these red flags rather than being the red flag. The best help we can suggest to our clients is getting a home inspection before buying one.
Having a home inspection deals with all these red flags, and it will be easier for them to transition into their new house with ease –all thanks to the help of a reliable and trusted realtor like you!
