DON'T BE SHY ABOUT ASKING
When perusing the listings of homes for sale, it may seem easiest to just contact the first real estate agent who pops up or whose name appears in the mailer you received. But the truth is, real estate agents have widely varying styles, strengths, and fee structures. You can save money by doing a little digging before hiring a salesperson to represent you. By asking the following questions, some of which pertain to sellers as well, you'll get a better sense of whether the agent is a good fit for you.
