Use your agent to narrow the prospect field.
Buying a home involves making many choices--often overwhelming and confusing decisions, the least of which is where to start. If you're thinking about buying, you've no doubt already begun looking through the pages of home magazines and searching through web sites. It doesn't take long before the rows of tiny house photos blur together. How can you be sure you've seen all the homes that may fit your needs? A good agent brings to the table an in-depth knowledge of the current housing inventory in their area, and continually updates that knowledge by touring homes as they are placed on the market. This is to your advantage. Trying to personally see every available home that might fit your needs would be an overwhelming process. If you are thorough in communicating your needs and what you can realistically afford, then your agent can help you narrow down the list of prospective homes to those that best suit your needs. This will save much time and energy. When the time comes to settle on one home, you can do it with the confidence that you've made a well-informed choice.
