You have come to seriously that the time has come to invest in real estate abroad. You have been to Phuket, and overall this place seems to you an excellent choice for making your first investment. You begin to immerse yourself in the material, study tons of information, send requests, and then, from all sides, experts, consultants and realtor in phuket begin to surround you, who in different ways begin to persuade you to agree to their services. At some point, a whole legion becomes “willing to help”, and it is very difficult to choose one.
Naturally, a specialist providing the entire range of these services is simply not able to control the quality, range of choice and, most importantly, the adequacy of the prices of these services. A good salesperson is simply not able to engage in operational activities (even in a delegation mode), because his main profile requires maximum concentration and responsibility.
Why do we need agents, wouldn’t it be better to buy directly?
Professional and responsible agents are definitely needed and helpful. A good realtor always gives the buyer a real picture of the market and helps to understand the specifics of a particular project. Developers are unlikely to be frank about the shortcomings of their products and to analyze in detail the features of competitors. Before the advent of the global Internet, agents were the only sales force, as many developers were unable to organize their marketing and generate a stream of customers. Now, at a time when essentially all information is in the public domain, agents have become valuable for their consulting expertise.
How do you choose an agent you can trust?
The question of trust in the world of finance is ephemeral and conditional. Any more or less real trust is a long process and based on real actions. Therefore, the process of choosing a realtor who will provide you with information and represent your interests in front of a developer can be compared to choosing a business partner, and choosing one — first of all, you need to check it. In this regard, the answer to the question «HOW» is multi-layered and contains several essential elements, neglect of any of which carries additional risks.
