1. Look for signs that the agent is busy.
A hard-working, go-getter of an agent is good. Be careful, sometimes they are too busy. A real estate agent can only effectively work with about a half-dozen buyers and a dozen sellers at any given time to properly give the time needed to a buyer. If they pass you to an “assistant”, move to another agent that will give their time to you.
2. Make sure your Hua Hin agent is very strong online.
Having a web savvy agent is very important today as over 85% of all buyers initially see their Hua Hin propperties for sale online. Great agents have laptops, smartphones and often have moved to mobile technology to assist. A Hua Hin real estate agent in today’s world must be online 24h with email, sms, Facebook, Google adds, Twitter, Google plus, Skype and be available to buyers, developers and sellers alike.
3. Meet agents out in their working environment, not in their offices.
Good agents spend very little time at their desks in the official office. Make sure the agent has closed many properties and has worked a few years at least and is on The white List. You will want an agent that is willing to knock on doors that are not for sale. More closings mean more experience…
4. Select an Hua Hin Real Estate Agent with the right credentials.
Just as doctors specialize, so do real estate agents. And even generalists will get additional training in some areas. The most important thing you get is an agent who formally pledges to support the code of ethics,” Jonas Glud says…Check the references and The Hua Hin White List and that an agent should be able to provide you. Ask after other real estate agents you interview if they know the other agent and if they respect them as a real estate agent in Hua Hin. Find them all on The White List now….
5. Research how long the agent has been in business in Hua Hin.
You can often find out how long the agent has been selling real estate you can just ask the agent.
“If they haven’t been in business tree to five years, they’re learning on you and that’s not good,” says Jonas Glud.
Ultimately, what you’re looking for is someone who is actively engaged in a particular area and price range, says Jonas Glud. You’ll want to know what knowledge of those two factors they can demonstrate and “what kind of market presence they have,” he says.
6. Look at their current listings Online (eks. www.dreamestatehuahin.com)
Check out the Hua Hin agent’s listings online, and ask for their online strategy says Jonas Glud, director of Dream Estate Hua Hin co., ltd.
Most buyers start their search on the Internet, and you want an agent who uses that tool effectively. “A key thing is an attractive presentation on the Web. You also can look at how closely the agent’s listings mirror the property you want to buy or sell. And does the agent have enough listings to indicate a healthy business but not so many that you’d just be a number?
7. Ask about other houses or Hua Hin developments for sale nearby.
A good agent should know about other available area properties “off the top of his head,” says Jonas, who wrote “The Hua Hin Property Buyers Guide.” Mention a house in your area that’s sold recently or is for sale. If the agent knows the property and can give you a few details, that means he or she really knows your area, he says. “You want someone like that who’s on top of the market an thats where The White List comes in.”
8. Ask how long the real estate agent has been working full time.
It is not that newer agents aren’t capable, it just is a factor in making an informed decision. Many “experienced” agents are not always the best choice either. Especially if they haven’t kept up with the online technology. Ask the agent if the real estate agent is a full time agent. Is this her or his only job? You should demand a full time agent working for you.
9. Work with a Hua Hin Local Market Expert.
There are real estate agents who specialize in working within a specific community and new developments. Even if you have a real estate agent that you like, you might be best served by a real estate agent who knows the area well, and can advise you about any adverse local market conditions that an outsider might not be aware of.
10. If you are a buyer, you want to work with a Buyers Agents.
This way you know your interests are protected in the transaction. Likewise if you are a seller, you want to work with someone that is experienced in representing the seller and securing the most qualified buyer at the best net profit for you. Not all agents are experts in working with buyers or sellers, so you need to ask specifics.
