It would help if you chose an experienced agent there for you. Your agent should actively find you potential homes, keep you informed of the entire process, negotiate furiously on your behalf, and answer 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, they are required not to tell the seller of your top choice. In addition, they are also focused on getting you the lowest asking price.
Also, when you use a buyer’s agent, you will see more properties. They are plugged into their Multiple Listing Service, but they are also actively finding homes that are listed as FSBO or homes that sellers are thinking about listing.
