What is the best way to go about selecting an agent to assist me with my search to purchase a home?Due to this winter being so bad I really haven't been searching for a home to purchase as often as I would have liked. I don't have an agent and have not gone through a pre-approval process. I am currently renting and my lease is up at the end of May. I know that time is drawing close and if need be I can extend on my lease on a month to month basis for an extra fee. Every home I have found on zillow or realtor.com that I've liked were contingent in the first few days they were up. Since this will be my first home purchase, I am not educated in all of the ins and outs of purchasing a home and would like to know the best way to find an agent that will be honest and helpful to guide me through this process. Thank you in advance.
