It’s important that you choose an experienced agent who is there for you. Your agent should be actively finding you potential homes, keeping you informed of the entire process, negotiating furiously on your behalf, and answering all of your questions with competence and speed.
First, find an agent who represents you and not the seller. This is beneficial during the negotiation process. If you are working with a buyer’s agent, he or she is required not to tell the seller of your top choice. In addition, he or she is also focused on getting you the lowest asking price.
If you don’t have an agent in mind, make sure to ask your mortgage consultant. They may have the best referrals available. They additionally can arrange a meeting easily and share first hand experience.
Also, when you use a buyer’s agent, you will see more properties. Not only are they plugged into their Multiple Listing Service (MLS), but also they are actively finding homes that are listed as FSBO (For Sale By Owner), or homes that sellers are thinking about listing.
