When choosing a REALTOR®, it's important to get a sense that the agent will work with you to fulfill your goals. This agent will keep in mind what your goals are and negotiate contracts within those parameters using their expertise.
When you receive an offer, keep in mind that the offer price isn't always the same as the bottom line. You will want to factor in a few things with your agent. For example, one expense commonly asked for by first time home owners is closing cost credit.
A home inspection is another common area that costs money, depending on your home's condition.
It's most important to be represented by a REALTOR® who will work with you to achieve your goals. This agent will help guide you through the negotiation process in an effective and strategic way.
