3 Signs That You’re Working With a Bad Real Estate Agent

“How do I sell my house NJ?”, you ask? Well, for starters, you’ll want to work with a real estate agent.

Mind you, don’t just work with any real estate agent. It’s important that you choose the right real estate agent. Otherwise, you’ll end up having to deal with a lot of hassle. Not to mention, you might not end up getting the most out of your property.

A real estate agent can make or break your real estate selling experience. This is why it’s important that you choose to work with someone with your best interests in mind.

You’ll know if you’re working with a bad real estate agent by checking out the following signs:

#1 — Sloppy and Unprofessional
Real estate agents and Realtors are professionals. As such, you expect some kind of behavior from them. Even if you’re shopping in an area where people are laid back and aren’t known for wearing formal behavior, you should always expect your agent to look, act, and be professional. This means that they should come to meetings on time, looking groomed, and prepared for whatever questions you may throw at them.

#2 — Pushy
Selling a real estate property is no small decision. It comes with a lot of risks. It’s also a very emotional and stressful process.

A good real estate agent understands all of this and will not try to push you to do something without having thought it through first. They understand your frustrations, worries, and fears, and will walk you through every way of the process. However, when someone tries to push you into selling, even if you’re not that sure, that’s a sign that all they’re after is that big fat commission at the end of the process.

While all real estate agents do really want to get a commission, the best ones will make you feel like they’re there for you whenever you need them.

3. Inability to Answer Questions
A good real estate agent is someone who has a strong knowledge of the local market, as well as of their craft. They should be able to break down the process in a simple way that even children would be able to understand what they are saying. More importantly, they should also be able to make you aware of any and all possible legal issues that may be involved in the process of selling your home

If a real estate agent is unable to answer the majority of your questions, you might want to think about working with someone else.

Selling to a We Buy Houses NJ Cash Buyer
If you don’t want to go through the possibility of working with a bad real estate agent, you can always sell to a “We buy houses NJ” cash buyer.

Cash buyers can save you the hassle of having to sell your house through traditional means by buying it off of you as-is with no strings attached. All you have to do is to submit your house for inspection and wait for the offer. If the offer looks fair to you, then the two of you can then negotiate on a closing date, and that’s it.

This relatively stress-free process is what makes the prospect of selling to a cash buyer more appealing than putting up a real estate property for sale.

Can't say enough about Ken and his team. This was the most seamless sale I made. I didn't have to deal with all the... nonsense that comes with selling your home. They bought my house as is, I didn't have to declutter and pay a broker commission. All in all great experience, will do business again.read more

Selling my property too Ken was the best thing I did. Although I was skeptical at first I soon found out how... professional he was. Even though my closing contract was not standard because of the pendemic situation. He followed through on time with all the contract terms as promised. Thank you Ken for your professionalism.Alfredo Gread more

Ken was referred to us by someone who had sold their home thru Ken last year. From the first meeting to the last... transaction, Ken and his team were professional, efficient, easy to work with, and above all.... caring. Each seller's situation is different, and Ken truly understands that. We were treated with respect each time.Since we were in a time crunch situation, selling our home with a cash offer from Ken was the best decision we could have made. We were perfectly okay with getting slightly less money for our home as compared to selling it via an agent. But if you consider the money saved on agent commissions (both buyers and sellers), closing costs, repair costs, attorney fees, and most important of all... time and headache, you can't beat the option to sell your home with a guaranteed cash offer from a reputable buyer like Ken.My wife and I were very pleased with our experience with Ken. If you are in the market to sell your home fast for a cash offer, I highly recommend giving Ken a call!Best of luck!Vishread more

Amazing experience! Ken was upfront, quick and got the deal done in no time. Having done a number of real estate... transactions this was by far the easiest and smoothest. I would unconditionally recommend him to anyone looking for an easy, quick and fair transaction.read more

Ken is a very professional individual from start to finish. As promised, he gave me a fair deal on my one of my... properties that was in rough shape. He was knowledgeable and responsive to my requests and as promised we didn't need to waste time with inspections and appraisals and we closed quickly. He made it painless as possible by having his crew handle the clean up. This was truly a quick and easy process but a professional individual. Thanks Ken!read more
