Many times we get clients who are either buying or selling their home here in our community and some choose to use a real estate professional or lender from another town or even state and that can make the difference between a smooth closing or a difficult one! We have different ways of doing things in our amazing community and some lenders or agents are unfamiliar with our process so this can lead to many delays and even a transaction falling through!
So the best advice I can give when searching for a Real Estate Professional's is to use someone who is local. They will not only know the area, but will know the lenders, title company's and what each will require for the process of buying or selling to go smoothly.
So before you pick an agent or lender, do some research, look at the reviews of what other home buyers or sellers are saying and go from there. But when dealing with Condominiums, waterfront, second tier and shared dwellings, local is definitely better!
