You may be of the opinion that you don’t need a real estate agent and that using one will add to the cost of buying your new home.
The fact is that a real estate agent’s fees are typically paid by the seller of the home. So, as a buyer, you can get the services of a professional real estate agent without having to
directly pay for it. Please confirm this in any paperwork or contracts that a real estate agent may provide because policies vary greatly by state and company. Be sure to ask about fees
when you interview agents.
Most real estate agents may work with buyers and sellers but often they specialize in working with one or the other. Make sure the agent that you choose has experience working with buyers and with no down payment transactions.
Be careful if you are speaking with a real estate agent and they don’t seem to recognize terms like “Down Payment Assistance Program”.
Start making a list of possible real estate agents to interview with referrals from your lender, friends and family.
A referral from the lender is great because you get the services from people that have worked together in the past and are already familiar with each other's systems. This can help prevent any last minute surprises or obstacles.
Questions to ask while you are interviewing real estate agents:
Please explain your fees.
Are you familiar with any no down payment financing programs?
Have you been involved with no down payment buyers in the past?
