Choosing a real estate agent is like choosing a date. There are too many things to consider, and if you want someone that is not right for you, then you are going to suffer for quite a while. Well, Denzity may not be a dating expert, but we know how to find the right real estate agent for you. Based on what we sourced from our experts and community, here are our top 4 tips.
Do solid market research
There are too many real estate agents out there, so it is essential to do market research before you go to talk to one. The traditional way to find a real estate expert is through a real estate agency, or maybe one of your friends has a personal recommendation. Yet, it can be harder to find an expert with oversea market experience. In recent years, Hongkongers start to expand their investments to overseas real estate markets, especially South East Asian real estate markets like the Vietnam real estate market and the Malaysian real estate market. Although large-scale real estate agencies can usually recommend a few experts to you, it is easier to find these experts online. With Denzity, you can browse names and contact details of real estate experts from all over the world. It is also a platform for experts to share their professional insights. At the same time, as consumers, the decision-making process cannot be easier with so much information all laid out in one single site.
Make use of technology
Technology makes our lives easier, and that is true for real estate equity investment as well. In the time of the coronavirus pandemic, we are getting used to communicating through online messenger apps. You can talk to experts through online meetings to stay safe and healthy, and it also saves a lot of time. With apps like Skype and Zoom, you can also arrange a meeting with more than one expert to enrich your consultation sessions.
Learn and make specific requests
It is hard to find the right expert if you don’t know what you are looking for. Before meeting your expert, it is crucial to list out your goals, your budget, and the potential concerns you may have. However, if you don’t have any idea and you’re just looking for some consultation, you can check out Denzity and its latest education series Denzity Insights for some basic knowledge. Through talking to real estate experts from different fields, Denzity allows readers to learn about a specific topic in the real estate industry. With a solid knowledge base, it will be easier for you to explain your requests to your expert, and more accessible for them to fulfil your needs.
Communication, communication and communication
People always say the most important thing about real estate is location, location, and location. But during the decision-making process of choosing a real estate agent, it is more like communication, communication and communication. Even with the right real estate agent for you, you still have to communicate frequently and actively to get all your concerns covered. Don’t be shy to tell agents your requests. With Denzity, you can make good use of the Q&A session to ask questions and interact with different experts. What’s more, you can interact with other real estate investors. It is always nice to have some community support, and who knows, you can make some new friends! We hope these tips can help you to find The One real estate expert you’re dreaming of.
