Millennials (those born after 1982), are now rapidly approaching an age where buying a home is attractive. While many people in this category tend to stay in touch by texting, this isn’t always advisable when buying a property. In order to communicate efficiently, nothing beats face to face conversation to help potential buyers fully articulate their needs.
In order to find the right home, real estate agents need to get to know their clients somewhat. This can be difficult to do if their only communication with a buyer has been through electronic devices. Holding an informal meeting in person is perhaps the best way for agents and clients to ensure they are on the same page when it comes to finding the right property.
It can also be difficult to tell if a real estate agent is completely honest without a great deal of in-person contact. Things such as body language and the tone of one’s voice cannot be distinguished through text message, and these often provide telltale signs that the agent is being less than forthcoming with clients. As such, millennials should shy away from brokers that seem to encourage electronic communications exclusively.
Texting should also be avoiding while viewing homes if possible. While looking at properties, clients could overlook some negative aspects of their property until after they have signed a contract. At that point, it could be difficult to get out of a purchase agreement without forfeiting one’s earnest money in the process.
