choosing a realtor
Can't seem to pull the trigger on selecting a realtor. One couple I like. They work partime and have few listings, but 8 years experience and a good personal reference. The other with a good reference, but not personal -a colleage- with lots of listings and years of experience The first gets 6%, the other 5%. How do I know which to choose in the age of the internet? Does one realtor really bring inmore buyers? Or does the internet do all the work?
And, do agents really blow off going to a realtor open house if it is in the country? We are talking a subdivision in the country. makes me wonder if real estate agents are lazy or unnecessary if an agent just waits by the phone for a buyer to call them off a photo seen on realtor.com.
So much more confused. Wouldn't be so confused if $30,000 wasn't at stake. It's not like the realtor is punching my clock. I guess it could equal out if I quit my job and become a full time FSBO . It's all so subjective after you pay to get on the MLS and Realtor.com.
How did you decide on your realtor?
