The old saying you get what you pay for, is especially true when it comes to buying real estate. you may not need someone to protect you or guide you when you go shopping at a mall for a pair of shoes but when it comes to purchasing the most expensive item you may buy do you really want to go it alone. There is a reason why the state of Texas requires 210 hours of classes in order to get the license and another 60 the first year and 30 the second, just to keep it. Because there is so much that goes into purchasing real estate and so many things that can go wrong for both the buyer and seller. The fee or commission should not be the first concern. Please protect yourself and hire a Realtor even is you have to pay the fee.
