If you’re looking for a home in Myanmar, then it is important that you choose an agent that knows all about Myanmar. Make a list of the things  you should keep on hand when you start your search:

·         Neighborhoods you like

·         The type of home you’re searching for

·         The budget of the House

·         Type of mortgage you’re interested in

·         The characteristics you prefer in a real estate agent, like a thoughtful listener, tough negotiator, or a speedy communicator.

Get Referrals

Start by speaking with friends and family and looking at online reviews of real estate agents. In Myanmar, look at the home-for-sale signs that are in the neighborhood and see which real estate agent’s name appears the most.

Look into background Info

Do a little bit of digging and make sure the real estate agent you’re thinking about choosing has a state-issued license. You can go to the individual state regulatory body online in order to verify the license.

Have  a quick look at the individual website or facebook page of the agent and see if they have any special certifications or if they have won any awards. If you find that they are a member of the local Realtor association, you can call to verify that the agent is a member that is in good standing. From here, you will also be able to find out how many years of experience they have.

Speak with more than one Agent

Think of choosing an agent as if you’re hiring an employee – the process here is similar. For the agents that look promising, schedule some interviews with them. Make sure you have a list of questions to ask the agent. Go ahead and ask them about their real estate experience, and pay attention to their personality.

Ask for references from their past clients.

Follow Up with Their References

Since you have references of past clients, go ahead and follow up with them. You can learn a lot by speaking with people that have worked with the agent. If they start speaking negatively of the agent right off the bat, this is a red flag. It is likely that they will have nice things to say, but ask questions such as “what’s the one thing you would have done differently during your home purchase,” and “what was communicating with the agent like?”

Once you have officially found a real estate agent through, you can start your home buying journey in Myanmar.
