“Don’t judge a book by its cover” is a metaphorical phrase which means “you shouldn’t prejudge the worth or value of something, by its outward appearance alone”. This has become so true about judging the value of a real estate agent. With the majority of home buyers starting their search for property on the internet, the tools to determine worth and wealth of real estate skills has shifted. With so much information available on the internet concerning the real estate market, it has become so important for the real estate agent to know and be able to direct the home search to the most relevant and reliable sources.
Does the flashy agent with the fancy car have the technology skills and tools to market and sell your home? Does he or she have the stuff to work with a smart, internet savy buyer? Perhaps…but in this world wide web of real estate, when picking an agent….. first disregard the shoes and then check for the iPad.
