If you plan to buy or sell a home in the near future, it is important to find the right real estate agent. By doing so, you should have no trouble getting the optimal results from the homebuying or home selling journey.

Ultimately, you'll want to conduct extensive research before you hire a real estate agent to help you buy or sell a home. This will require you to look at a variety of factors, including:

1. Communication Skills

A real estate agent should serve as a friendly, knowledgeable source of housing market insights. This individual should be able to provide you with the information you need to make homebuying or home selling informed decisions. That way, you can seamlessly navigate the homebuying or home selling process.

Hiring a real estate agent who is a great communicator is essential. This housing market professional will allocate the necessary time and resources to listen to your concerns and questions and respond accordingly.

The right real estate agent will stay in touch with you via email, phone and text. This will ensure you can stay up to date as the homebuying or home selling journey moves forward.

Plus, a real estate agent who understands the importance of communication is unafraid to be honest with you. He or she will provide honest, unbiased suggestions as you buy or sell a home and guarantee you can get the support you need at all times.

2. Industry Expertise

How long has an individual served as a real estate agent? Spend some time learning about a real estate agent's expertise, and you may be better equipped than others to determine whether this person can help you accomplish your homebuying or home selling goals.

A quick online search offers a great starting point as you assess a real estate agent's expertise. In fact, this will allow you to learn about a real estate agent from any location, at any time.

If you want to go a step further, set up a face-to-face meeting with a real estate agent. This will enable you to ask questions and gain deep insights into a real estate agent's background.

3. Client Referrals

How would past clients rate their experiences with a particular real estate agent? Thanks to client referrals, you can find out how a real estate agent has supported his or her previous clients.

A real estate agent should be able to provide you with client referrals without delay. Then, you can reach out to these client referrals and gain unparalleled insights into how a real estate works with homebuyers and home sellers.

Client referrals allow you to find out what it's like to work with a real estate agent at each stage of the homebuying or home selling journey. They also can provide you with insights into a real estate agent that you might struggle to obtain elsewhere.

Evaluate the aforementioned factors as you search for the right real estate agent, and you can employ a top-notch housing market professional to help you buy or sell a house.

Some of the reasons why the young ones are not buying a home are the high student debt, affordability among others. We are going to discuss the primary reasons why young people are not buying a house in this article. Here we go:

Affordability 

One of the main reasons why millennials are not into real estate investment is a substantial financial implication. The home affordability for first-time buyers decreased to about 92.5 in 2018 according to NAR – National Association of Realtors. The index was 109.3 in the year 2015. A value of 100 shows that a family has what it takes to qualify for a median-priced home. 

High level of student debt

Another reason why many young people could not afford a home is the high level of student debt. In the United States, student debt reached $1.5 trillion, and it is one of the factors that are hindering young people from investing in real estate. Apart from high student debt, they also have to deal with meager wages. The NAR report explained that more than half of the homebuyers who are below the age of thirty-eight that student debt is one of the significant factors that delayed their home buying. Apartment list shows that graduate that does not incur student debt will save for 7.6 years at 20% down payment to get home while those with debt will have to save money for more than 11.6 years.

Tighter Lending 

If you are wondering why young people cannot afford a home, one of the reasons is stricter lending conditions. Financial institutions have tightened credit underwriting to minimize risk. The rise of house prices does not favor the young ones who are planning to buy a home. They will have to accumulate enough cash over a long period to enable them to afford a house. The Bank of America noted that those within the age of 25 to 35 years commenced their career at the time of financial crises when the labor market and economy were recovering.

Not Married Yet 

The delay before getting married and having children means that young people are not considering getting a home sooner. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) reports that the mean age of a first-time mother is now 26.6. They discovered these findings in 2016; they added that the average age might increase when we consider the women in urban areas as well as college-educated women. According to the Census Bureau, getting married and having children are life events that trigger buying a home.

As a young person looking to buy a home, you should speak to a financial advisor and a reputable real estate agent to plan towards owning your own home.
