Buyer Hints from Linda Grissette, VIP Real Estate

Real Estate Article:  Hints on Buying a Home

Whether you are a first time buyer or someone who has owned several homes, you need the most information possible about buying a home and about some of the mistakes you can make that will take more of your time, and possibly even cost you more money!

Driving Areas You Like Looking for Real Estate Signs

You can waste a lot of time and money on gas driving around looking for signs!  That's pretty obvious, but here are some other problems with driving around:

The MLS system has nearly all of the homes that are on the market and a good agent will also keep a database of homes that are for sale by the owner.  Find the agent who will work hard for you and help you find the perfect home before you start looking for homes.

Going to Open Houses

When you go to an open house, the person you will meet most likely be the listing agent.  If could also be a brand new agent looking to pick up some buyer leads.  Look at the previous sections for reasons why that is bad.  If you really want to look at open houses, get your Buyer's Agent to take you to them. 

Looking on the Internet for Homes

Since you found this page, it is obvious that you know how to search the internet.  But have you realized yet that is very hard to find quality and complete information on homes on the market.  Here are some of the problems you may find:

In order to find out about the best homes for you without wasting your time, hire an agent who will do it for you.....some one who know what they are doing because they've done it many times before.

I hope this will help you understand the risks you take by just going out looking for houses by yourself.  All real estate agents are NOT created equal.  Spend the time to find an experienced and knowledgeable  agent to work for you (or do it quickly and call Linda),  Then let your agent do the work for you.
