7 Tips for Choosing the Best Indian Head Park Illinois Real Estate Agent

A good Realtor/real estate agent can make the complicated process of buying or selling a home in Indian Head Park much easier.  But a great Indian Head Park, Il real estate agent/Realtor can make it feel almost effortless — doesn’t that sound appealing?

Here are 7 things to look for before you sign that Indian Head Park IL real estate listing or sales agreement.

  1. Local or Insider Information
    Does your agent have specific insights about your neighborhood?  Do they live in or around the towns where you are looking?  How much knowledge do they have about your specific market?
  2. Connections
    A stellar agent has a broad network of potential buyers and sellers, plus great relationships with other agents.  Your Realtor should also have a team of vetted and loyal experts including contractors, handymen, designers, financial experts, and architects who can help their clients with renovations,  design, or small fixes.
  3. Communication
    You won’t want to chase down your agent for crucial updates.  Ask your agent’s references if they’ve ever struggled to get their agent on the phone or have questions answered by email.
  4. Negotiation Tactics
    Your Indian Head Park real estate agent should be able to guide you to a successful sale or purchase, by providing suggestions for offers (and counteroffers), strategies for competitive markets, and any contingencies you’ll need in order to make it to the closing table.
  5. Credentials
    Some real estate agents have certifications in addition to a real estate license:  A certified residential specialist (CRS), for example, has specific training for residential real estate transactions; an accredited buyer’s representative (ABR) designation means they’ve completed training to represent buyers.

  1. Workload
    A full-time real estate agent is more likely to put in the work to get your real estate transaction to the closing table. Unlike a part-time agent who dabbles in Indian Head Park real estate, a full-time agent does not have to supplement her real estate earnings with a second job.
  2. Agent’s Record
    State boards license and discipline real estate agents.  Find out if your agent has been disciplined (and why!) to help you decide if she is a good fit for your real estate transaction.
