San Diego is one of the biggest and most populated cities in the entire state of California. With its gorgeous climate, which is warm and temperate all year round, its breathtaking scenery and views, world-famous beaches, and a seemingly endless supply of things to do and see, it is easy to see why more than 1.5 million people choose to call San Diego home.
Many people relocate to San Diego for the quality of life that the city offers. Some people choose to move here to be closer to the ocean or beaches. Others move here for the warm weather and sunshine. San Diego has also emerged as a biotechnology and healthcare hub and development center, so San Diego is also a popular option for people searching for jobs within the healthcare and biotechnology industries.
If you are considering relocating to San Diego, one of the first things you will need to do is find a home. Choosing the right real estate agent can make a world of difference in this process. The right real estate agent can be especially helpful if you are new to the area. If you don’t know of any real estate agents in the San Diego area, here are a few tips to help you when selecting your real estate agent:
Talk with the agent’s recent clients. Ask agents to provide you with a list of the homes they have listed and sold within the last year or so – with client contact information. While some people are especially careful with their privacy, clients are happy to speak with potential new clients about their experience with their real estate agent. Be sure to ask the clients what the listing price of their home was, and what they were able to purchase the home for. You need to know that you are working with an agent who can skillfully negotiate on your behalf, to get you the best deal on the home of your dreams.
Look up the agent’s licensing. California has boards that license and oversee real estate agents. Check to see if the agent you are considering working with is licensed, and also whether or not there have been any complaints filed against him or her. California is one of the few states that houses and stores this information in an online database, which homebuyers can freely search.
Pay close attention to awards and accolades. Awards and recognition given by an agent’s peers are a good indicator of someone you want to work with. This endorsement can go a long way when it comes to putting your mind at ease when choosing an agent to work with.
Find out how long the agent has been in business, and research their sales history. This is not the time that you want an agent to be learning, and if they haven’t been in business for five years or more, that means that they’re still learning – and at your expense. You want to look for an agent who is well established and is actively working in the area and price range you are searching in.
Check out their current listings. Search the agent’s current listings through the MLS. The Internet is such a powerful search tool and is, hands down, the first place most people go to look when they are starting their new search for a home. You want to be sure that you are working with an agent who knows how to use this indispensable tool properly.
One of the next steps you will need to take care of is setting up or transferring your existing services and utilities. Your real estate agent can help you through this process; or, we have compiled a list of local contacts for utility companies, for your convenience.
