Great question. There are a number of online resources and online training classes to help you answer this question. A couple of them are actually recognized by the local organizations who provide down payment assistance.
Here's a post that was written a while back, but largely still relevant regarding how to choose a buyer's agent. Some of these actually make me squirm a little and I wrote them.
Other questions come to mind as the market continues to evolve. For instance...
1. How many of the agent's closed transactions over the past year involved Government Sponsored Enterprises or GSE (HUD, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FDIC, VA), bank-owned foreclosures, short sales?
2. Ask the agent to describe a time when their client was entitled to the return of and received their earnest money in a transaction involving a GSE?
3. How much experience does the agent have with the various programs available locally to help with the down payment, closing costs, etc.?
Please call me sometime for information on online home buying classes that are recognized here in Metro Atlanta.
