Is There a Reason to Hire a Realtor?
I'm looking for a house or a lot. I'll buy an existing house if I find a very good value with most of the features I seek. Otherwise, I'll buy a lot and build a custom home.
I've been searching through internet sites and calling the listing agents of properties that interest me. If I find one that I want to buy, I'll have my real estate attorney review the necessary documents.
Is there any advantage to hiring a buyer's agent? Is there any disadvantage relative to my do-it-yourself approach?
