The today's world perceives the profession of a realtor negatively – these dispassionate "sales people" seem to sell you a damp basement with leaking pipes under the image of a profitable investment, promising a near future repair of the building and the growing popularity of the area. However, we can rarely do without service of a realtor.
We decided to change the rules of the game in real estate transactions and we did it smooth in a very real sense.
WHAT IS A REALTOR AND WHAT EXACTLY IS HE RESPONSIBLE FOR
Traditionally, a realtor is an agent assisting you to buy or rent a property for a fee. To do that he has to change the roles:
1. an analyst, while choosing the object fitting your criteria;
2. an accountant, balancing your expenses and revenues;
3. a lawyer, making contracts and checking whether the transaction is net;
4. a courier, delivering your documents;
5. a lifestyle manager and even a psychologist, removing your agitation, noticing unobvious details and answering late calls.
This set of competencies is often accumulated accidentally and not always successfully – as a result, we look for a good realtor, just like for a good doctor – among our friends.
IT'S CLEAR, BUT WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT?
On the one hand, realtors cause adoration, as there is hardly one else, who can cope with a confusing series of formalities, and on the other hand– there is a slight dislike, as the size of the commission depends on your purchasing power. Performing the same set of actions, the realtor gets a greater reward, if you choose a more expensive object.
Generally speaking, he does not care about the extent of your satisfaction with the deal in the long term – the realtor works neither for you nor even for the developer, but for himself. The faster the transaction is completed, the faster he is free to serve a new client, thus he is not interested in collecting meta-data from your request – he is used to focus on strict criteria of the floor space, transport accessibility and playground availability.
