Experiences on Working with Apartment Brokers

by Dov Waxman

Apartment search is stressful enough for most of the people who involve in busy schedules of their daily life. For such kind of people hiring a broker for their apartment search would be an advantage to save their time. When working with apartment brokers there are some aspects to be followed. They are as follows:

  • Firstly, be mindful, though, that in some locations, brokers are the only ones with access to most of the available apartments, in which case, you have little choice in the matter and must save up enough to cover a broker’s fee.
  • Working with more brokers also means casting a wider net into the apartment market. So don’t use only one broker. Hiring a bad broker is harder to tell when you don’t have someone to compare them to.
  • Stick with as many brokers as you like and remember you are making payment to broker not the apartment’s owner and the broker is working for you.
  • If you find one who is honest and eager to help, don’t let them go. Make sure you get there business card or any other contact information, so when you need to find apartment or apartment in any other cities, they can help you in finding the best apartment as you are already worked with them.
  • Be honest with brokers on what you’re looking for. If they show you an apartment that’s ghastly, let them know.
  • Don’t be afraid to hurt their feelings, because they won’t take it personally. Also tell them what you specifically don’t like, so they can look out for apartments that meet your standards. It will save both of you a lot of time.
  • Brokers are salespeople. Some will romanticize the apartment or offer suggestions on how to use the space. It may be that they genuinely believe it, but don’t get caught up in their excitement and start adjusting your lifestyle to fit the apartment. Only go for apartments that meet your needs and preferences.
