Steps to Home Ownership!
More than 2 million people in the United States have earned
real estate licenses. However, real estate is a tough business
with a steep dropout rate, and the result is that only a small
percentage of those with licenses actively help buyers and
In most cases real estate agents work for the seller whom
they have a listing contract and are paid by the seller.
There are buyer agents who will contract with you, representing
you. However, if the deal is a co-broke they are still
paid by the seller and sometimes by you as well. It is up to you
to decide to get a realtor or not, but we do recommend you get
help from agents or consultants like 'Houseaboutus'
Buying and selling real estate is a complex matter. At first it
might seem that by checking local picture books or online sites
you could quickly find the right home at the right price. But a
basic rule in real estate is that all properties are unique. No
two properties -- even two identical models on the same street
-- are precisely and exactly alike. Homes differ and so do
contract terms, financing options, inspection requirements and
closing costs. Also, no two transactions are alike.
In this maze of forms, financing, inspections, marketing,
pricing and negotiating, it makes sense to work with
professionals who know the community and much more.
How do you choose?
In every community you're likely to find a number of realty
brokerages. Because there is heated competition, local realtors
must fight hard to succeed in your community.
