Shopping for a Home

Buying a home is one of the most important decisions you will make. That's why it's in your best interest to choose an experienced real estate agent who listens to and understands your needs, and has detailed knowledge of the area in which you want to live.

When you choose a CENTURY 21® Action Realtors agent, you're dealing with a professional who understands your concerns and will provide you with the personalized service that makes all the difference.

What should you expect in your first meeting with a real estate agent? A CENTURY 21® Agent will typically talk to you about the neighborhood where you want to live, home prices, schools, transportation and the surrounding commercial and residential areas. They can also address the pros and cons of using a buyer's agent versus a sales or dual agent.

When you are ready to visit houses, ask your CENTURY 21® Action Realtor to help you with:

  • Arranging showings
  • Tracking the properties you've seen
  • Identifying homes which meet your criteria and keep track of your "what's right for you" list

After touring each home, write down what you liked and didn't like. Your CENTURY 21® Action Realtor can help you develop a rating system to narrow the field. For example, pick the house you like best on day one and compare all other houses to it. When you find a better one, use the new favorite as your standard.
