I feel it is very important and necessary to advise Consumers to be aware of an alarming issue in the real estate community. Right now the market is down and has been since 2007. As a result, many long time agents are getting full time employment jobs and leaving their real estate careers for the weekends. As a consumer with a real estate need, you will want a full time Realtor that can help you anytime, not just after business hours. The same can be true for your lender and inspector. You want someone you can not only get in contact with, but someone with a focus on their real estate career. Someone who has the experience, training, and dedication for every real estate market. We all know the re market swings up and down, but if you are an agent that’s not in it for the long haul, I would not want you helping me with one of the biggest and most important decisions in my life. Please choose wisely when you pick a Realtor.
Ask your Realtor questions about their dedication to the industry and what alternate income streams they have. You may find your Realtor really isn’t a real estate agent at all, they may be a flight attendant, a lender, insurance salesman, or waiter. Ask the questions and consumers beware of part time realtors who want to make money off of you in real estate without having to commit to the industry.
