If you plan to buy or sell a home in the near future, it is important to find the right real estate agent. By doing so, you should have no trouble getting the optimal results from the homebuying or home selling journey.

Ultimately, you'll want to conduct extensive research before you hire a real estate agent to help you buy or sell a home. This will require you to look at a variety of factors, including:

1. Communication Skills

A real estate agent should serve as a friendly, knowledgeable source of housing market insights. This individual should be able to provide you with the information you need to make homebuying or home selling informed decisions. That way, you can seamlessly navigate the homebuying or home selling process.

Hiring a real estate agent who is a great communicator is essential. This housing market professional will allocate the necessary time and resources to listen to your concerns and questions and respond accordingly.

The right real estate agent will stay in touch with you via email, phone and text. This will ensure you can stay up to date as the homebuying or home selling journey moves forward.

Plus, a real estate agent who understands the importance of communication is unafraid to be honest with you. He or she will provide honest, unbiased suggestions as you buy or sell a home and guarantee you can get the support you need at all times.

2. Industry Expertise

How long has an individual served as a real estate agent? Spend some time learning about a real estate agent's expertise, and you may be better equipped than others to determine whether this person can help you accomplish your homebuying or home selling goals.

A quick online search offers a great starting point as you assess a real estate agent's expertise. In fact, this will allow you to learn about a real estate agent from any location, at any time.

If you want to go a step further, set up a face-to-face meeting with a real estate agent. This will enable you to ask questions and gain deep insights into a real estate agent's background.

3. Client Referrals

How would past clients rate their experiences with a particular real estate agent? Thanks to client referrals, you can find out how a real estate agent has supported his or her previous clients.

A real estate agent should be able to provide you with client referrals without delay. Then, you can reach out to these client referrals and gain unparalleled insights into how a real estate works with homebuyers and home sellers.

Client referrals allow you to find out what it's like to work with a real estate agent at each stage of the homebuying or home selling journey. They also can provide you with insights into a real estate agent that you might struggle to obtain elsewhere.

Evaluate the aforementioned factors as you search for the right real estate agent, and you can employ a top-notch housing market professional to help you buy or sell a house.

As a home seller, it is essential to do everything possible to promote your house to the right groups of property buyers. However, as you approach the finish line of a home sale, you may encounter a "persistent" homebuyer. And if this happens, the home selling process may come to a screeching halt.

A persistent homebuyer may be more likely than others to demand home improvements or a price reduction to finalize a house sale. As a result, you may need to decide whether to accommodate this homebuyer's requests, continue to negotiate with him or her or walk away from a potential home sale altogether.

So what does it take to deal with a persistent homebuyer? Here are three tips to help you do just that.

1. Understand the Housing Market

Are a homebuyer's requests valid? If so, they are likely to be based on housing market data. Therefore, if you analyze the housing market closely, you can better understand a persistent homebuyer's demands and proceed accordingly.

Take a look at the prices of comparable houses in your city or town. By doing so, you can determine how your house's price rates against the competition.

Also, don't forget to assess the prices of recently sold homes in your area. This housing market data will help you understand the demand for houses in your city or town and determine whether you're operating in a seller's or buyer's market.

2. Stand Your Ground

A persistent homebuyer may be in a hurry to purchase your house. As such, he or she may push you to make rash decisions that may not be in your best interest.

For home sellers, it is important to take a step back and evaluate all aspects of any home selling decisions. And if you feel uncomfortable with a homebuyer's requests, you should feel comfortable walking away from a possible home sale.

Ultimately, declining a homebuyer's requests and walking away from a home sale is far from ideal. On the other hand, doing so will allow you to reenter the housing market and restart the home selling journey with a fresh perspective.

3. Consult with a Real Estate Agent

If you're unsure about how to deal with a persistent homebuyer, you're probably not alone. Lucky for you, real estate agents are available nationwide to help you handle tough negotiations with any homebuyer, at any time.

A real estate agent understands the art of negotiation and can share his or her housing market expertise with you. That way, you can get the support you need to make informed decisions at each stage of the home selling journey.

Perhaps best of all, a real estate agent will respond to your home selling queries as the property selling journey progresses. No question is too big or too small for a real estate agent, and this housing market professional is happy to answer your home selling questions time and time again.

Take the guesswork out of dealing with a persistent homebuyer use these tips, and you can boost your chances of getting the best results from the home selling journey.
