When looking for a home, whether you’re buying, renting or selling, it’s important that you are your realtor have a good relationship, especially in a market as competitive as Cayman. Here are some signs that it’s time to drop your current agent and upgrade to Diamond Properties.
- Lack of or poor communication – in a fast moving market, you want someone who’s not only going to stay on top of their game, but also someone who communicates affectively with you. If you reach out to your agent and do not hear back within a 24-48-hour time frame (or sooner), you may need to revaluate whether you’ve chosen the right person.
- Lack of experience – while there’s nothing wrong with new blood, experience is important in most professions and real estate isn’t any different. Hiring an agent who lacks experience is one of the number reasons why estate deals fall through. Paula McCartney at Diamond Properties has 15 years of experience in real estate, making her the top choice of relators in Cayman.
- Too pushy – at some point in your life you are bound to encounter a salesperson who is pushy, inconsiderate and quite frankly, rude. This is not uncommon on the competitive world of real estate. For example, if you feel a buyer has made a low offer on your home, and you don’t want to settle, but your agent does, this is a major sign you’ve hired a poor realtor. While your agent should be your council, and offer reasons behind their decision, you should never feel you’re being forced to make a decision you don’t agree with.
- Poor negotiator – this should be obvious, but it’s your relator’s job to get you the best possible deal on your home. Having an agent with strong negotiation is vital. At Diamond Properties, you can rest assured that you will get the best possible rate – whether you’re buying a home or selling one!
