Ill try to get the ball rolling with a few examples.
Agent ignores your phone calls and emails or simply doesn’t stay in contact. Seems to take forever to reply. Buying a house and spending your hard earned savings is very emotional. So be there for my silly questions when i ask them cause they’re not silly to me.
Agent has to many things going on to give the personal touch your looking for when spending a butt load of money. Agent is overloaded and seems impersonal. Or worst they have another job and only do this real estate thing part time.
You catch your agent in even the smallest of lies. If they’ll lie about something small they’ll lie about something big. Like oh it has a newer roof. (thats a big one)
If your agents own listings seem to far fetched and outrageously over exaggerated. Even if your not looking at one of your agents listings. I would rather deal with an agent that says this house is a POS and will take a bank full of money to make it livable, then to have one says oh it just needs a little TLC. Just be honest most people aren’t complete idiots.
If every house you look at the agent says " the sellers have another offer on the table you’ll need to act quickly." Its playing on your emotions and is nothing more then them trying to pressure you. So they get that big fat commission check. Yes you need to act quickly and run to another agent.
