If you think you’re ready to buy your first home and understand how expensive a home you can afford, you have two options to find and purchasing your first home: on your own or with an agent. Most people prefer hiring a real estate agent to help them purchasing a home. If you consider purchasing Wilmington NC real estate, make sure you only hire a real estate agent that have a good reputation in that area.
The best way to find a real estate agent is by getting personal recommendation from family or friends who recently bought a house. If family or friends don’t have anyone to recommend, you might want to use a real estate agent you find on Yellow Pages or internet, you met at an open house or spoke to on the phone during your preliminary search. If you find your agent at an open house, in the yellow pages, or on the internet, make sure you thoroughly check the agent’s credentials and experience before you sign a contract.
