How to choose your real estate agent in the Mile-End?
The Mile-End, a reference district.
If there’s one particularly coveted neighbourhood in Montréal, it’s the Mile-End. With his beautiful coffee shop, restaurants and touristic attractions, several people wish they could live in this district to have this neighbourhood life. Counting near 24,000 inhabitants and having an area of 1.6 sq km, if you wish to establish yourself there, it’s important to wisely choose your real estate broker. In this article, I will give you some advice to make a good choice.
Choose a real estate agent who knows well the Mile-End.
From one person to another, needs change. If you have a young child, it’s important to check if there are schools near your home. If you are considering renovating your future property, it’s good to know urbanism rules. When it’s time to choose a broker, make sure he knows the districts and has several years of experience.
Real Estate Banner, an advantage for you.
Do business with a broker who operates under a real estate banner has several advantages. Since the framing is more structured compared to the independent broker, brokers have to follow continually training to be able to serve their clients and know all the trends in real estate in the Mile-End.
Availability, an important quality for a real estate agent.
Condos, houses and apartments in Mile-End are coveted as the rest of properties in Le Plateau-Mont-Royal. The speed at which your real estate agent will react will play a crucial role in the sale or the purchase of your home. Even outside of office hours, a good agent should be available to answer your question and emails.
Always take the time to read recommendations.
Go on Google and type the name of a broker. Normally, you should be able to see their Google My Business listing and the reviews that their former clients let on their page. Don’t hesitate to ask for references from colleagues or clients to make a better decision.
Is the connection going well between you and your broker?
Buy or sell a property is not an easy process. It can be emotional and trying by moment. We don’t buy a house like we do our grocery shopping. It’s a complex transaction and you need to have by your side a broker who will defend your interest and understand your reality. When you start to work with him, it’s important to establish your expectations.
Now, it’s your turn to choose a good real estate agent.
Whether it’s to buy your first condo or to sell a home in the Mile-End, it’s important that the person who will work on your side is available to answer your questions and know well in his district. A good broker operates under a real estate banner and has several years of experience. Ultimately, taking the time to see what past customers are saying about him will help you avoid unpleasant surprises.
