Choosing the Right Realtor
Updated: Tuesday, February 09, 2010

Buying Lake Michigan real estate is one of those things that most people would agree is easier said than done.  A key component to ensuring a smooth experience is to have the right Lake Michigan realtor assisting you every step of the way.  Choose a bad realtor and the buying experience could be more trouble than it’s worth.

Clearly one of the most important factors is a realtor who actually listens to you.  Besides asking you what your needs are, he or she should also cater to these needs.  If for example you’re interested in single family Lake Michigan property, the realtor should not be wasting your time and showing you condominiums.  If they do, there should be some logical explanation to back it up.

It’s also important that you seek out a person who works in Lake Michigan real estate for a living, not a person who likes to sell properties as a side job and extra means of income.  These people are usually not up to date on the latest listings and generally do not have the resources to network with brokers or listing agents as quickly as someone who commits his or her full time and resources.

These are only two of many things you should look out for if you’re considering any kind of Lake Michigan property.  Your own intuition can be a good indicator of reliability but there are lots of resources you can use to determine whether or not a certain realtor is right for you.
