Why should I use a real estate agent to purchase a home?

Using an agent can help you in many ways. First, the seller or builder pays for the services provided by the agent in the purchase of your new home, making these services free to the home buyer. Second, an agent knows everything involved with the purchase of a resale or the building process of a new home. Agents provide representation to the home buyer and assist them in understanding the home buying process, paperwork and can often help in making your purchase a smoother transaction. Third, with an agent, finding the right home in the right location is made simple. I can do the research for you and show you homes in your area of interest that meet the criteria you specify.

Matthew is exactly right! Who would defend themselves in a legal action when an accomplished attorney is available free of charge?

Agents can be helpful, but not all agents are a good choice. Interview more than one agent. Ask a lot of questions and listen to your gut. Do not feel pressure to sign any exclusive agent contract and make sure that you understand how to cancel any agreement that you sign before making an offer.

There are questions that you may want to ask any prospective agent here that might be helpful. Agents vary in professionalism, quality and honesty. It is worth taking the time to choose a good one.

Is this a legitimate question or self promotion?  Posting consumer information is one thing.  Indicating you are the most qualified agent in the Finger Lakes is self promotion.  Zillow policy prohibits threads which are purely for the purpose of self promotion.
