Is this area growing or declining in value?
Maybe you're looking at a home that seems a bit overpriced, but it could be because the surrounding neighborhood is up and coming. Or, something might seem perfect upon first look, but after talking to your realtor, you may find that the local crime rate has risen over the past 4 years. More than the home, you want to know the history of the neighborhood. Don't be afraid to ask these questions.
How many clients are you currently working with?
This might not be a question you want to ask, but it can give you a good idea as to how committed your realtor is to finding you the perfect home. If he or she is juggling 100+ listings, you can probably guarantee that you won't receive the proper attention you deserve.
What is the best way to reach you?
Some realtors respond quickly to text messages, others have set office hours and will only reply by email. If you know how to communicate with your realtor, you will be able to effectively work together to make this professional relationship a success.
