After considering the features of the property you want to find, either individually or by agreement, you should make the difference between primary and secondary needs, whether it is an investment or a first residency. The best way of doing so is to resort to a high-standard real estate agency complying with the necessary quality standards to guarantee your investment.

It is also important to clearly communicate your demands and budget possibilities to your agent so that the search for your property will be as efficient, assertive and timely as possible. If you resort to a professional agency, you will be assigned an agent with extensive knowledge of the area, who is interested in your search and gives you professional advice.

The importance of having an experienced and responsible agent
It is of vital importance to devote the necessary time to the purchase of your property because it is a valuable asset and you must make good use of your time, so you should take advantage of every opportunity.
Whenever you agent calls you with a property opportunity, he is offering you a new and fresh chance that suits your search demands. You have the possibility of visiting a property that has not been advertised online for too long or whose price has been probably modified to fit your budget. Do not put this chance off until the following week since many people may visit the same property in the succeeding days. “Opportunities are not lost but taken by somebody else”.
Agents assess valuations according to real market transactions, are permanently updating themselves and make sales every week, so they are quite sensible and work with properties with the best possible relationship between price and quality. If you consider these parameters, you will not take long to notice which real estate agents make the difference by means of a personalized, professional and responsible service, making the most of your time and aiming at excellence.
