Hi Bigger Pockets People!
What would you like to see your agent provide for you as an investor? What did you like about the last agent you used? What could your agent have done better?
Thanks for the feedback!!
A great agent brings me the deals and tells where the value is.
If it is a distressed property, i want to know what could be the suitable improvements for the property. I want him to give me a ballpark idea of what she/he thinks the costs would be as well as the ARV.
Of course, i can do all of that myself. But an agent who brings me that info before i spend hours to trying to figure it out myself is extremely valuable.
Thanks Patrice!! That's great, a second opinion is always helpful.
I would agree with Patrice. Additionally, if a realtor ever came to me with the numbers after running them through one of the calculators on BP, i would be impressed. That is something I have not seen a realtor do yet, combine their knowledge of the MLS/comps with BP calculators to get an estimated ROI/cash flow/etc.
@Kaelyn Motzel . One of the biggest things I’ve seen in a good agent is communication. If I ALWAYS hear back from you within 24 hours, I think that’s a good deal. So many agents are not good at communicating.
Being an Agent myself I have noticed that some of the agents do not call people back, which frustrates me. No matter if it was another agent or a client. I have always believed it was that it is our jobs to either answer right away or call back as soon as possible. The key thing in being in Business in Real Estate is the on going communication with all people involved.
