With all economic indicators showing positive growth for San Marcos, the time may never be better for investing in property in this beautiful community. Land and residential home prices remain not only affordable, but also an excellent value with positive investment potential. Finding the right Realtor to help buyers identify the perfect property for them is the first step in a happy home buying experience.

Tips for Selecting the Right San Marcos Realtor for You

First off, make sure you're dealing with a licensed Realtor. Realtors are bound by codes of ethics and business conduct. Check for their credentials, and that they belong to the National Association of Realtors. There are many such qualified professionals in San Marcos.

Secondly, ask your friends, relatives and business relations if they have any recommendations. Word of mouth is often the best way to select a Realtor. If you're moving to San Marcos from out of town and don't have any personal contacts whom you can question, contact the local Realtor board for the most active agents. Agents who sell a lot of homes often do so for a reason: satisfied customers who refer their friends and co-workers.

After getting together a short list of potential Realtors, make appointments to visit with each of them, even if only by phone. Interview them all. Check that you feel good about dealing with them, that they listen to your questions, and care about the amenities that matter to you. Don't work with anyone who acts like they know what you want or need without you having discussed your needs first. They are working for you, not the other way around. If you are, in fact, working with them from out of town, make sure that they are easily reachable. You want an agent who is quick to respond to your questions, concerns, and who isn't overburdened by too many other projects. When dealing with Realtors in San Marcos or anywhere else, make sure they make you and your home buying needs top priority.
