I do not plan on getting a RE buyers agent. Why not? Until OP himself responds, I'll hazard a guess that he doesn't want to get stuck with a bad agent. This would be a valid concern. When DD, a first time buyer, went house-hunting, the agent she worked with wasn't particularly helpful. After a couple of months she met another agent she liked better. Since she hadn't signed anything with the first agent, it wasn't a problem to switch, and after a short time working with the 2nd agent, she bought a foreclosed house from a bank, which she's been very happy with.So let me add to the OP's list of questions another one: How does one go about finding a good Realtor?Having been through the buy/sell process a couple of times myself, and having helped relatives, I think one way is to just walk into open houses or brokers' offices, meet a few Realtors, see what they have to say, then go with whomever you like best, but even then there's some trial and error. So, is there a better way? (Besides word-of-mouth, since I'm assuming OP hasn't been hearing good recommendations.)
