If you call on a house being advertised on the internet or go to an open house, you are working with the seller’s agent.
The best approach is talking to family and friends that have bought a house in the last couple of years.
Make a list of what you want in an agent.
You can include a “wish” list to find your ideal house.
However, you want to look at all of the houses on your “must have” list but there is no point in looking at houses that don’t meet your minimum requirements.
Once you find your ideal home, take the time to learn about the neighborhood in-depth.
Always have a professional inspection of the house.
A general inspector may recommend a more detailed inspection by a specialist.
Your agent should have talked you through the process in the beginning.
Understand your local market.
