The most important thing when you decide to purchase a home is selecting a real estate broker. People usually go about it backwards, they choose a property from a brochure, newspaper or from a booklet that they found at their nearest supermarket and they call the agent advertising it. Typically, no one buys the house they called for, but from that point on they're joined at the hip with a real estate agent that they know nothing about- whether they are good, bad, indifferent or new to the business. Be mindful that this person will represent you on probably the most important financial transaction you'll make in a a lifetime. Do your research, ask your friends, neighbors, parents at school, people who live in the community you are interested in, these people can share with you valuable information that you can use to make an informed decision.
Be very inquisitive and choose the right agent. Other wise, you'll be stuck with someone that will tell you anything to sell you any home in order to make a commission. They'll tell you that its the best house they've ever seen, that your kids are going to love it, that your Neighbor will be Bill Gates or Tom Cruise, you name it. The right real estate agent will get to know your needs and advise you accordingly. The right real estate agent will establish a life long relationship with you and will always look out for your best interests.
Almost all of the real estate agents who specialize in the Palmas del Mar market will enter into a cooperation agreement with any other agent that brings them clients. Therefore, you don't have to be stuck with the agent that has the listing you are interested in. You can let the agent you choose and trust show you that home, and eventually represent you in this important transaction.
