How to Choose the Best Real Estate Professionals


Is finding a real estate agent on your to-do list this summer? Let us help you check that off and save big at closing. Selecting the right real estate professional can make all the difference in your home buying and selling experience. Here are 3 to-dos to ensure you choose the best one:

• Get to know him/her. A good agent will take the time to understand your goals and priorities. Which means, if you are buying, they won’t waste time on properties that don’t meet your criteria. If you are selling, they will know exactly at what price you need to list your home and how to protect your best interests..

• Find an agent who is an expert in your desired area. Whether you are buying or selling, choosing an agent with expertise in your specific market will give you an edge when it comes to pricing, marketing, finding that tucked away neighborhood, or knowing about that house that is about to be listed.

• Choose an agent who rewards. Ideal Credit Union offers free access to our online HomeAdvantage® program and its network of experienced, hand-picked real estate agents. When you use one of these agents to buy or sell (or both), you qualify for Cash Rewards saving you $100s to $1,000s at closing!

 Ensure your home buying or selling experience is a good one. Connect with one of our trusted HomeAdvantage agents today by visiting us online or calling 651-747-HOME (4663).

*The HomeAdvantage® program is made available to you through a relationship between Ideal Credit Union and CU Realty Services. Cash Rewards are awarded by CU Realty Services to buyers and sellers who select and use a real estate agent in the HomeAdvantage network. Home buyers or sellers are not eligible for Cash Rewards if they use an agent outside this network. Using Ideal Credit Union for a mortgage is not a requirement to earn Cash Rewards. Cash Rewards amounts are dependent on the commissions paid to the agent. Ideal Credit Union may have specific rules on how your Cash Rewards will be paid out. Cash Rewards incentives are available in most states; however, are void where prohibited by law or by the lender. Please consult with your credit union to get details that may affect you.
