Real estate agents are among the most misunderstood professionals in the United States. Although this job is supposed to assist people in purchasing homes, most people think it ends with scamming society.
Many agents, for whatever reason, do not respond to inquiries and messages promptly, and some do not answer at all. When it comes to the house buying process, contacts and customers have numerous questions.
Many consumers have the impression that their agent is not listening to their needs, whether it is showing buyers homes that are not even close to what they are looking for or sellers who do not realize they have options. Too often, real estate agents attempt to fit the client to the property rather than the other way around.
Most people lack the vast knowledge and expertise that real estate agents possess concerning purchasing or selling a home. They may be wary of entrusting what is likely to be a crucial investment in their lives to an outsider.
Being a successful realtor requires working several nights and weekends and being reachable by email or phone almost 24 hours a day. Customers may wonder why they must pay a commission to an agent if he cannot prove upfront the value the agent brings to the process
