Reasons Why You Should Use A Registered Agent
Most Real Estate adverts in Zambia today have a common hashtag “strictly no agents” that is because most people don’t know that they can choose to work with a ZIEA registered agent and get services that are commendable.
When thinking about working with a Real Estate Agent or Agency the first thing you need to ask them is:
- “Are you registered?”
- “What is your Ziea registration number?”
- “May I see your license?”
As a client, you have a variety of options; there are more than 100 registered Real Estate Agents in Zambia you can choose from. While you look for an agent with reasonable fees and favourable contract terms, do your due diligence and solicit agents with solid recommendations and traceable references.
There is nothing wrong with trying to go it alone when you are trying to find a tenant or a buyer for your property.
So why use an agent?
It’s crucial to find a real estate agent who knows the market well and can give you insight as to what you should be paying or listing your home for. Real Estate Agents belong to an intricate network of well-informed individuals.
If you’re looking to buy an investment property, you’ll want an agent with experience in that arena. He or she should be able to advise you what rents go for in the area if you’re looking to become a landlord. And if you’re contemplating a fix-and-flip situation, your agent should be able to give you a solid sense of what to pay for a house in disarray.
Be street smart, if you doubt your agent, contact ZIEA
