Most of the time as a client, you’re unable to ask important questions when purchasing property. One needs to understand the property a company, an agent or an individual is selling well as well as negotiation skills.
Here are; 8 Questions You Would Ask as a Client Seeking to Purchase Property:
- In which neighborhoods do you sell
One would like a realtor who knows the neighborhoods they sell so well and speaks about them like a local. This will enable you to learn more about the land, the land history or the houses that maybe you may be looking forward to buy.
One will also know if the particular personnel is selling property in a residential area only, commercial area, industrial area or mixed. This is why it’s very important.
Your realtor doesn’t just need to know the market valuations in Nairobi as it is or at large, they also need to know the valuations for each specific neighborhood.
- How many people have purchased property from you
This is important because the number given even if it’s an approximate, it will help you gauge the reactor or the company. The busiest realtors are often the most efficient. With this also you may be able to get some testimonials from different clients they have dealt with to help you in making that decision to purchase from them.
- How many deals in the area have been a success
Success on the sale counts. You want someone who has a proven track record of closing deals. Proves honesty and dedication will be present.
- How available are they
Many realtors work part time and that’s fine. But if you expect them to respond to your queries in a timely manner, it’s worth asking how available they can be when you have questions or want to tour a property, especially if your schedule isn’t very flexible.
- Will I be working with you directly
As we can be put it, will your realtor handle all aspects of the transaction or will they delegate some tasks to a sales associate or administrative assistant? A knowledgeable assistant can be delegated, but you want to make sure you can connect regularly with your realtor.
This creates a business relationship and also enables communication to be better. Also, if anything was to go wrong, you know who to deal with directly.
