I got asked this question last week. “What's the most important quality for a real estate agent to have?” So I thought I would answer it in this video. There are so many things a buyer and/or seller should look for when hiring a Tampa real estate agent. Some that come to mind are:
5. Negotiating Ability
Hi everyone. This is your Tampa Bay realtor Lance Mohr and in this videos, I want to go over a great question I got the other day from a home buyer and that is. What is the number one quality a real estate agent should have when you work with them? Iím going to go over that in this video.
I just thought that was a really good question. I just, of course, wish I could really narrow it down to one quality and I am going to do that. I would say if you're looking for a real estate agent whether you are a buyer or a seller you really need to look for an agent that has a lot of great qualities. Not just one or two of them. You know thereís so many things. Do they have great communication? Are they honest? Are they looking out for your best interest? Do they know what they are doing? If they been in the business a while and happened a lot of experience. Are they are going to be available to show your property? What happens if they go out of town? Do they have someone in their team or someone in their office or someone they could get you in the home so you donít lose it? Do they have to know how, how to negotiate?
What is the single best quality you could have? Now before I answer that. I do want to just give a side note here. I just have to say, I think most agents out there are honest and they are really trying to do the best their home buyers and home sellers. Some of them just donít have the experience level. I want to sort of put that off because at the end of the day you to hire an agent that's honest or forget it. I just want to assume that every agent that youíre talking to that you have a good feeling that is least theyíre honest but if we take away and just put that off to the side.
I would say the number one quality an agent could have would be their knowledge. Not just book smart but more knowledge on experience. If they did, if they have been through is this our first rodeo or is it their thousands of rodeo and how do they. What experience level do they have because of weíre in a different market right now and thereís a lot of people out there? They just donít know what they are doing and I think thatís okay. I mean everybody has to learn but you want someone who knows what they are doing. Someone whoís knowledgeable. So out of everything except honesty and I'm just going to say, I think everybodyís going, to be honest out there. There are a couple bad apples but not many of them out there but put it aside honesty I would just say knowledge. That would be my number one quality. I think any real estate that youíre looking whether youíre buying a home or whether youíre selling a home should have.
Iím curious to find out what do you think. Do you agree with that? You think knowledge? Do you think availability? Do you think I should just say honesty and forget everything else? So in your input, Iíd like to know what you think. I hope this helps you. If you have any questions. Don't hesitate to reach out and contact me.
