What to Ask Atherton Real Estate Agents?

When you first interview an Atherton real estate agent, ask if they have any connections to lenders and lawyers. You’ll need information from both. Many agents have experience with law or banking. Use their experience.

Be careful not to dive into a home search with your Atherton Real Estate Agent without talking to a lender. That way, when you are ready to make an offer, you can move quickly. In a hot market, the need for even a few hours to talk to the mortgage broker can mean losing out on your dream house.

Look for a truly passionate professional. Some agents, even in Atherton, have no passion for real estate. They sell a few houses every year, but it is not a total commitment for them. You need a passionate negotiator on your side. Someone who knows the legal implications of every word on your contract. Someone who will fight for you to get the property you want or sell your property for every dollar you deserve.

Check Your Contract

The contract should explain all the terms to which you have agreed, including commissions. Usually, sellers pay 6% of the sales price of the property in commissions. This is split between the 2 agents, the seller’s and the buyer’s agents. The commissions come from the sale proceeds, so there is no need to worry about having to come up with additional money for that. If you have any questions about how commissions work in real estate, ask your Atherton real estate agent. They will be happy to explain.

Also, check how long your contract is. In today’s competitive seller markets, many houses take less than 30 days to sell. If you haven’t sold your home in a reasonable time, you want to switch agents, so make sure your contract is less than 6 months. Also, if you are a buyer and are still looking for a home after several months, you’ll want to keep your options open.

As Atherton Real Estate Agents, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with you to find the right home for you and your family. Please CONTACT US by phone or email. We look forward to helping you.
