This may sound like nonsense, but many Realtors do not like working with home buyers. How could that be? Why? Doesn't every real estate transaction need a Buyer... and a Seller? Of course they do.
But think about whom Realtor's actually work for in most transactions. Their commissions are generally paid by the Seller. That means they have a contract with the Seller to sell their house. If they successfully arrange for a qualified buyer who agrees, executes and closes on the deal, they receive their commission.
Are you ready to buy your first house? That's exciting and possibly terrifying at the same time. But don't worry, if you know what to look for and have a structured plan of attack, you can maneuver through the obstacles and reach the finish line with a great new home.
Before you start your search, there are few things you will want to watch out for. Also known as... common pitfalls to avoid. If you can recognize these and figure out how to bypass them before they cause a problem, you will save thousands of dollars and plenty of headaches.
