Clear communication is an important element in any relationship.
Nobody wants to deal with a pushy real estate agent who constantly hounds you for feedback.
At the same time, you don’t want an agent who’s never in touch and fails to serve your needs in a timely fashion.
In the early stages, many home buyers shy away from asking too many questions as they don’t want to waste the agent’s time since they’re just getting started.
The truth is, your agent wants to hear from you every now and then so that they can continue to grow with you as your house-hunting journey evolves.
Everyone’s needs are different though. Some clients require daily property updates while others who are just getting started prefer a more relaxed approach.
Your circumstances may change as time goes by so it’s important to adjust your search criteria as well as how often you receive notifications so that you’re not overwhelmed with unsuitable listings.
Effective communication is essential when it comes to forming and maintaining any relationship and a client/agent relationship is no different.
As long as you and your agent regularly communicate with one another during your house hunting journey, you’ll feel neither pressured nor abandoned.
