I have read the various responses to the initial question regarding the methods to discover acceptable neighborhoods in which to purchase a home and find it puzzling that no one suggested talking to a realtor.In today's marketplace, realtors do not only represent the seller of the homes that they have listed in the market. Realtors work as buyer's agents as well and will represent you in that capacity if you so request. That does not necessarily mean that the buyer will owe the realtor a commission when a home is found because most sellers have already agreed to pay the "selling agent" a commission when they list their home. Likewise, if your agent finds a home which is not listed, most sellers who attempt to sell their home themselves will "cooperate" with a realtor who finds a buyer and will pay a commission. It is only in the rare instance that a seller will pay a buyer's agent a commission that the buyer may have to pay the commission directly. However, in that event, the commission expense should be able to be negotiated out of the sales price.I would check out websites for realtors who work in the area you are intending to move. They are the best resource for finding homes in areas in which you are not familiar. If you have any questions about representation, see my site @ suncoastrealtor.com.realbro
