Real estate agents in Egypt aren’t viewed very favorably by people. This is true all over the world. When some agents do business with a seller, people assume they’re only after the profit.
However, many real estate agents in Egypt put integrity and honesty above profit. This doesn’t mean that every sale made is 100 percent honest. But it’s certainly a sign of professionalism when a realtor wants to earn their living. There are even several firms of realtors in Cairo that put ethics above profits.
If you’ve done business with a real estate agent who hasn’t been honest about what’s available, I’m willing to bet that you’re going to be unhappy with their performance. They’ll likely have very little work for you, so if you find yourself with an offer you can’t match, move on.
Some real estate agents in Egypt do business with only those who can prove citizenship. However, others will do business with any buyer who comes through their doors. If you find that an agent isn’t interested in working with foreigners, move on to the next one.
When you meet with an estate broker, make sure that they present themselves as a person who cares about the people they represent. It’s fine if they don’t have a website. It’s okay to ask them why they don’t have one, but otherwise, don’t assume they’re just looking for quick bucks.
You should always contact your real estate agent before agreeing to anything. It’s not uncommon for them to use other people’s information against you. If you’re approached by someone you don’t recognize, don’t give them your credit card number or any personal information. Be suspicious, but don’t respond immediately.
You may be surprised at how easy it is for real estate brokers to get your information. It’s possible that they’ve received the information from a source like a loan processor, a real estate agent or even a real estate company itself.
The best time to call a real estate broker is when you’re trying to buy a home. That’s when you’ll feel the most confident in the transaction. You want to make sure that the agent you’ve chosen is honest, responsible, reputable and trustworthy.
A good real estate broker can help you find just about anything in the marketplace. They can help you find a great house or fix up a house, get a better mortgage or find some really good deals on commercial properties. They can also find you the perfect apartment or find the next best home for you.
