How do i buy a house

Answer

As some of the others have mentioned your best bet is to find an experienced agent to represent your interests especially if you are a 1st time homebuyer.  Please check out the 1st Time Buyers Toolkit that you might find helpful.  Please keep in mind the tax credit has expired and is no longer available.

How do I create a "Business" profile on Facebook?

Answer

All you need to do is set up a Facebook Fan Page for your  Business.  When that is done your profile can be indexed with Google once you reach 25-50 fans unlike a regular page.  Good Luck!

what type of social media zillow has used ?

Answer

As an agent in today's market I think it's important to embrace Zillow's value add and compliment it with other tools.  I met several Zillow folks at Inman and think they are embracing the new world of real estate. It's difficult for "Old School" real estate agents to see and embrace the current market.  The market has changed and it's time for agents to see the value of the key real estate portals in  today's market including Zillow.

Should I use a buyers agent?

Response

The seller pays the Buyers Agent fee so there should be no reason NOT to use a Realtor.  In today's world the listings are out there - it's the advice of a great Realtor and their knowledge of the market that will help you find the best home at the best price!

Found a great home with our realtor, but she is also the seller's agent... what to do?

Answer

Some agents prefer not to have a "Dual Agent" that represents both the buyer and the seller.  It's very difficult to keep both parties interests at heart.  You can ask her to refer you to another agent for representation or find another agent to represent you.  Or, if you feel comfortable, you could use that agent for the transaction.   A buyers agent would represent your interest only!
