Real Estate Agents
Having access to a active real estate agent can be very beneficial. By working with a good real estate agent you can have them keep you updated with the best deals in your marketplace as soon as they come onto the market; this strategy can easily be put on auto pilot because they will have access to the multiple listing service. When looking for a real estate agent, consider a agent that is new to the industry. It will be likely that they will have fewer clients and more time on their hands to work with you. Be sure to be clear with your agent, and tell them exactly the types of properties that you are looking for.
Many people try to sell their properties by themselves. These sales are deemed as For Sale by Owner, or FSBO. Sometimes these can be great deals, as there are no real estate agents involved looking to make a commission. As such, an owner can afford to ask for a lower price. At the same time, it could mean these properties can be grossly inflated, because the owner has no footing in their local market. Be sure to know the conditions of your local market to make sure you are paying the best price possible. www.Craigslist.org is a great website to start out at to find for sale by owners.
