How do you choose which Realtor you’re going to work with? Do you listen to referrals? Or do you consider their track record? Do you simply call the number on the first for sale sign you see? While these methods have the potential to land you a trustworthy Realtor, I’d like to suggest a different method for finding the right agent- a.k.a. determining if your agent is tech savvy. In today’s world of high speed internet, laptops, smartphones and more, there’s never been an age where being tech savvy is so important to a business. But what sets a tech savvy agent apart from the rest of his competitors? There are a number of different answers, but we’ve chosen the top three for those trying to decide if their agent is truly tech savvy.
1. Social Media. How available is your agent on social media networks like Facebook and Twitter? Can you follow them or learn more about them via online networks. This is crucial to many agents because it helps solidify trust and a personalized experience from the very beginning.
2. A helpful website. Anyone can build a website today, but it takes a tech savvy Realtor who cares about his customers to use his website to help his clients. A smart agent will use his site to promote information that will be useful to buyers and sellers alike. In addition to different pages with helpful information, blogs are a great way that your agent can disperse helpful real estate tips. Unsure of whether or not your agent is tech savvy? Check their blog page for recent updates. And make sure they have easy to find contact information!
3. Finally, a tech savvy agent will have the option to search for homes online. This is the most important aspect of an agent’s website because it’s what homebuyers are looking for. If your agent’s website is simply an online billboard that won’t do you any good. But an agent who uses his site to point homebuyers towards home searches is using the internet to his advantage as well as for the benefit of his clients.
Now that you know what you’re looking for, it’s time to determine if you’re working with the right agent for you. And if you’re looking to work with a tech savvy agent, there are few better than David Welch. To start searching for your home the smart way, be sure to contact David Welch, today!
