The Importance Of Picking the Right Broker for Orlando Real Estate
Although every market has its ups and downs, it's been mostly down for real estate for some time now. However, according to a study and forecast by Attorneys' Title Insurance Fund Inc., Orlando real estate continues to be the strongest real estate market in Florida because of the area's strength in fast-growing industries such as healthcare, tourism, education and defense. If you're a seller, there have been better times, even in Orlando. If you're a buyer there are some terrific bargains. Either way, in these trying times it is especially important to work with a real estate agent who specializes in the local area. This is a lesson I learned the hard way.
When I was ready to move again, all this came back to haunt me. While I had thought my property was a dream home, it turned out that it had several flaws that made it unattractive in a declining market. The agent had never mentioned that to me. And once again I was stupid enough to enlist an inexperienced part-time broker to sell my home. The national realty firm she worked for was no help at all and, after what seemed like forever, I ended up selling at a large loss.
I had learned my lesson the hard way and resolved to never make the same mistake again. When we finally relocated I drove around the area, spoke to homeowners, interviewed several agents, and finally found a local realty firm that specialized in the part of town I was interested in. They helped me in my search and the difference was dramatic. Like that very first broker of mine, the agent took his time explaining local market conditions, listening to my requirements, going through the Orlando MLS with me, patiently showing me various options, locating a great place, helping me close a good deal, and then assisting me with local laws and paperwork.
They say real estate is location, location, location. In my experience, that's only partially true. What it's really about is agent, agent, agent. Orlando real estate remains an attractive and potentially lucrative proposition, but only if you pick the right agent. Whether it's preconstruction, construction, investment or just advice, getting someone who truly knows Orlando and its markets is essential.
