Reasons to consider using an agent:
1. When you use me as an agent, it doesn't cost you anything but time, and less of it than going at it alone. I don't charge the admin fee or transaction fee or any kind of fee to the buyer. My service to the buyer is free, which means you as the buyer are getting so much experience and knowledge for free, and who doesn't want something for free.
2. You get protection. You have someone working with you side by side protecting you from all the obstacles that could come with purchasing a home such as home inspection issues, appraisal issues, financing issues, mold issues, etc. An agent is your watch dog and watches over everything from beginning to end. Most transactions go smooth, but there are a few that are nailbiting to the end.
