As I sit in my office today preparing for an upcoming class, I am reminded of the importance of choosing to have a real estate agent represent you exclusively when buying a home.
Why is this important you ask? You get so many more benefits by having the full attention of the agent who is representing you, they are to have your best interest at heart.
You do, of course, have a choice, you can choose not be represented and/or represent your self (kind of like representing yourself in a legal matter).
If you are thinking of buying a home, think about working with one real estate agent ~ exclusively!
Interview agents so that you have a good feel of what is a good fit for you.
