real estate agentSo you've completed your real estate search and you have finally found your dream home. Do you seal the deal on your own, or do you hire a real estate agent? Nowadays, most would say hire an agent.

A realtor will provide you with accurate evaluative information about all of the real estate listings you are interested in, as well as help you negotiate a deal when it comes time to purchasing a home. It is more common for a seller to have a real estate agent, but with the housing market being so unpredictable, it couldn't hurt for a buyer to use an agent as well. These buyer agents will generally collect around 5% to 7%, while a selling agent will take about half of the total commission.

Realtors are expected to be familiar with the area you live in.
