Asking these questions when picking a real agent could mean thousands!

 

It can seem pretty easy in a market like this just to stick a sign in the yard and have all the offers come in one at a time. But the truth is, it takes more than that.

Are You Ready for Home Ownership?

A home buyer does not want to be caught off guard in a seller's market. It's one of the reasons that the most important thing a home buyer can do is trust his or her real estate agent to advise on market conditions.

Home selling tips
