Questions to ask a Real Estate Agent

3 Replies

Hello BP,

           I am taking my first steps on the road to financial freedom. Next week I will see if I can get pre-approved for a loan to see where I stand, and what kind of offers I can make in the future if I find a property worth buying. I will also be talking to an Real Estate Agent next week as well. I just wanted to know what questions should I ask a Real Estate Agent? How do I find a good Real Estate Agent. I'm kind of nervous to take these steps because I'm so new at this but I want to keep pushing forward and not be paralyzed by all this information that I am learning. Hope to hear some good feedback!!

I'm not sure exactly what type of investing you're looking for, but no matter what you want to find a realtor that will have no hesitation when it comes to working with investors. If they seem to be on the fence about it then just move on. I would consider looking for an agent in your area that is on bigger pockets because it is showing they are definitely interested in working with investors. Search BP for an area realtor. Good luck!

Getting pre-approved is the first step which you are already in the process of doing.

After that you will know what you can afford to buy. Speak with some agents and see how familiar they are with homes in that price point.

If you can find one that focuses on investors or even invests themselves that would be a big plus.

Good luck.

Dev, welcome aboard. To find the good ones you might have find some bad ones first. That includes properties, tenants, contractors everything. Sometimes you get lucky but it's gonna be question of endurance with these things. But we think you're doing great, talk to as many people as you can and take action. Have a great day buddy
