Questions from Real Estate Agents

Real estate agents begin their professional relationship with buyers by asking numerous questions about the buyer’s personal and financial situation. The answers to these questions will give the real estate agent a clear idea about the buyer’s housing needs and price range. It is a waste of time for an agent to show a buyer homes they can’t afford, and it can be disheartening to consider unrealistic possibilities.

In order to do a great job finding you a home, your real estate agent needs to have some basic information about your income, debts, and the amount of cash you have available for a purchase. Your agent also needs to know something about your lifestyle. How large is your family? Where do you work? Do you have school-age children? Do you enjoy entertaining? What hobbies would you like to accommodate?

The real estate agent who helps you find your new home will get to know you very well, so it is very important that you feel comfortable with that person and free to communicate openly.
