According to the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION of REALTORS® the average number of weeks a home buyer has been searching is 12...and the average number of homes seen 10. 62% of the home buyers viewed homes on line and 76% took a drive by the home to view before contacting an agent.
87% of home buyers are using a Real Estate Agent while 90% are searching the internet. So what is your preference? Are you searching online? If so are getting all of the information that you need to make a sound decision?
If you are a first time home, and 39% of home buyers are first time, then it would be wise to hire a Buyer's Agent to help you because they will ask the questions that come with experience. That is why we call a plumber and not a truck drive to fix our leaky faucet and a dress maker and not a lawn service tech to hem our clothing. If you want a broker you can trust who will work for you...consider a Coldwell Banker Buyer's Agent.
