What to Look for in a San Diego Real Estate Agent

By: John Harris

Buying real estate in San Diego means you need to be prepared, informed, and ready to move. Working with a can be a smart move, provided you know how to choose a good one in the first place. Because the San Diego market is high priced and highly desirable, its remained competitive despite the fall in home sales over the last year. A qualified San Diego real estate agent can make the difference between getting the home you want and losing out.

Traits to Look for in a San Diego Real Estate Agent

It is important that your San Diego real estate agent really knows the area. Unlike many areas, San Diego County offers tremendously different styles of living. High end living can mean the coast (but there are many coastal cities with different personalities).

It can mean bigger lots and seclusion as in Rancho Santa Fe or parts of Poway. It can mean a downtown condo overlooking the waters of San Diego Bay. Looking for family living, Poway has great schools and terrific family neighborhoods but so does Carmel Valley, Carlsbad and many other places. Again, each area carries its own personality. Working downtown but cannot deal with traffic? An experienced San Diego Real Estate agent is critical in helping you find the areas that can best trim our commute while keeping to other home searching criteria as well. An experienced local who knows the benefits of buying in Encinitas and the pitfalls of that home in Carlsbad is critical. Why? Your San Diego real estate agent should be able to act as a guide in helping you make offering and negotiating decisions. If you work with a San Diego real estate agent who is new to the area, or to the business, you really run the risk of missing out on key pieces of information or valuable connections. Yes, I know, every experienced agent was a rookie at some point, and an inexperienced agent may some day turn out to be the best San Diego real estate agent out there, but with my money, I'll place my money on someone with the experiences and the connections to get me the home I really want.
