WORK WITH PROFESSIONALS YOU TRUST
Find a real estate professional you can trust. I mean, really trust.
For many people, buying or selling a home is one of the single largest investments (and accompanying financial transaction) they'll ever make. Believe me, you do not want to hand this very important- and extremely complex- process to someone you don't trust completely, and who may not have your best interest at heart.
Good agents pledge up front to make you partners in the process and to act as your trusted adviser. They spell out for you-figuratively and in some cases literally-what they'll do for you and when they'll do it and why. And after they're done, they ask for your honest feedback. They know the ins and outs of their market-your market-including anything and everything about the neighborhood and community (types of homes, the quality of local schools, nearby parks, and so on) that will help you make not just an informed decision, but the right decision.
DEVELOP IN AN AREA WHERE GROWTH IS COMING
William J.Boykin, founder of Boykin Lodging Company said, "Always develop in an area where growth is coming. If you are a little early, or a little wrong in some way, the growth has been and growth is not continuing, when you are wrong, you are wrong ferever".
THINK LOCATION-AND HONESTY
When you are purchasing real estate, the three most rules remain: location, location, location.
Whey are selling real estate, the three most important rules are: disclose, disclose, disclose. Honestly prevails.
