First Time Home Buyers choosing a Realtor®

Nothing is more exciting than being a first time home buyer. Nothing can be more frustrating than driving around town becoming an official: “lookie lou” wasting gas and time, and having no clue about the “nuts and bolts” of buying a home. To avoid any further frustration, you need to grab a parachute labeled , Realtor® and let them handle all the “what if’s” while you make the transition from a “lookie lou” to a “supervisor.”

That said, as a first time home buyer “supervisor” you’ll need to look for the caution signs in terms of using a Realtor® .
