Look for These 4 Traits in a Real Estate Agent When Buying a Home, Mountain Home, Arkansas

Choosing a real estate agent ranks high on the list of important decisions homebuyers must make, but how do you know when one is right for you? The real estate agents at Gilbert Realty in Mountain Home, AR, enjoy sharing valuable information with house hunters to help them make wise decisions in their selection process. They say you should interview at least three agents and look for a few important qualities.

4 Qualities to Seek in a Real Estate Agent

Neighborhood Knowledge

Homebuyers need real estate agents who have extensive knowledge about their neighborhoods of interest. The one you work with should be familiar with available properties, pricing trends, schools and other community amenities, and the number of foreclosure homes in the area. You’ll need this data to compare properties and help you make a choice.

Sharp Negotiation Skills

Buying a home involves negotiating with the seller or their real estate agent. Buyers need agents who are seasoned negotiators to protect their interests. The right agent will keep you from not only offering and paying too much but offering too little, which could thwart a potentially great deal.

Strong Contacts

Real estate agent Mountain Home ARExperienced real estate agents have contacts to help you find professionals you need to get to the closing table. They include loan officers, appraisers, and home inspectors.


Your neighbor might recommend someone as the best agent in town, but if they are not available and reasonably accessible when you need them, they’re not the best person for you. Work with a real estate agent who’s easy to contact even during nonbusiness hours, such as evenings and weekends.
