There are several factors to consider before entering the market: down payment and financing, the type of properties that meets your needs, areas that fits your lifestyle, and very importantly: a property that meets all of the above criteria and stays within your budget!

Here are the top 4 reasons:
It could save you money: A buyer’s broker works diligently in researching the property to detect any problems or issues that could influence your decision in purchasing the property. Your broker will also provide you with all the necessary information before making an offer, to ensure you are not overpaying.
The listing (Sellers) broker/agent works for the seller, not for you:Listing broker have a legal obligation to only represent the seller’s interests and have no obligation to yours. Their responsibility is to sell the property for the highest possible price.
