4 Etiquette Tips When Working With a Real Estate Agent, Black River Falls, Wisconsin

A real estate agent helps buyers and sellers navigate the ever-changing market and manage challenging negotiations. They do everything in their power to ensure clients’ needs are met. In return, there are several steps you can take to foster a good working relationship with the professional. To help set the stage for a successful partnership, here are some etiquette tips to follow.

How to Work Well With a Real Estate Agent

1. Be Ready to Buy

If you aren’t ready to buy a home, wait to hire a real estate agent. Browse listings online first until you’re prepared to commit. When attending open houses, be forthcoming and mention that you’re still shopping around. Once you’re ready to buy, get a mortgage pre-approval before finding an agent.

2. Don’t Work With Multiple Agents

An often unspoken yet critical piece of etiquette to abide by is never to work with more than one agent. In addition to creating a potential conflict of interest, it’s considered poor taste on the part of the buyer. Working with one professional allows both parties to build a healthy relationship founded on trust. 

3. Be Timely

real estateWhether you’re buying or selling a home, it’s important to exercise common courtesy and show up on time for all appointments and showings. Real estate agents often keep a busy schedule with multiple clients a day, so your tardiness can throw off their timeline, creating undue pressure. If issues arise that cause you to run late, be respectful and call the agent to alert them of the situation.

4. Abide by Proper Open House Protocol

If you plan on attending open houses, discuss with your agent whether it’s appropriate to do so unattended. In certain areas, it’s looked upon poorly when potential buyers visit without a professional. While attending, give your agent’s business card to the one hosting, as their representation will serve as protection.
