Tara Collett, Home Buyer in Akron, OH

Interested in multiple listings...

Asked by Tara Collett, Akron, OH Wed Jan 23, 2013

I am interested in several properties in Akron, OH. Most are listed with a different real estate company. Do I have to contact each company individually for each listing? Or can one company/person help me. I am currently out of state and unable to view the properties at the moment and would need more photos of the property if possible and general addresses for lots and land since I am using google maps to view the neighborhood and it can differ from one end of the street the the other.

Any help/advice would be appreciated!

Hi Tara,

You do not have to contact every listing agent. You are able to use an agent to represent you as a buyer no matter who has listed the home. I can give you sites and emails to see any listing you wish. However many agents do not include complete pictures of their listing. So, you may need a buyer s agent to view the property personally, take pictures and give you a write up on the home. I can certainly help with that since I view 8 to 10 homes a day.

Let me know.

Have a good day!

Tara.... you do not have to contact each agent.... search through the qualified Realtors on this site and choose one to work with. We all have access to the same information but some agents are part time and some full. Choose one that will help you with your home search and when you come to town, that agent can show you everything available in the areas and price range that you are searching in. It makes your search easier and quicker! Steve

As stated below a GOOD purchase agent will be your best friend. They will be able to gather all of the information you need. Unfortunately majority of the agents I work with are in the Dayton market, but I would be happy to refer you to an agent in your area.

Are you purchasing these properties as an individual or do you have an LLC established for your investment properties? My firm works with real-estate investors offering a Mortgage Planning consultation. If I can help in any way feel free to contact me. MHelpling@RapidDayton.com

MLS has all listings and any Agent/Broker associated with that MLS can show you any properties you wish to see.

After all the good advice below, also you may not want to negotiate with the listing agent as they represent the sellers. A good buyers agent of your choice is an excellent idea. My info is in the link below and we also offer all homes for sale that is on the MLS. Thank you and good luck to you.
