I was asked the other day - I'm looking at a house that is owned by Fanny Mae. Do I need a realtor?Everyone needs and should have a realtor when buying a home. In Minnesota, buyers receive free representation by realtors because the commission is almost always paid for by the seller. This gives you someone to help you walk through the process of home inspections, financing, appraisals, and getting you to closing. Savvy buyers almost always have their own real estate agent working on their behalf. There is no reason that everyone should not be savvy when purchasing a home!March 11 2014 - White Bear Lake00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
