I think if you don't have a agent call the listing agent, you'll be glad you did !
The listing agent is familiar with the property and know's how to negotiate with the seller because that agent is working for the seller . Make sense ?
If I am trying to sell you something that I am not familair with, will I be a good negotiator ?
As a Realtor, my job is to negoiate between the buyer and seller. By law I can assist both buyer and seller!
The buyer and seller wins all the time !
The listing agent is not going steer you wrong. He or she is working to get the property sold. If you have an agent already that's great. If you call the listing agent he or she will be so happy to show you their listing and help you buy the property with less hassle than trying to quibble with the price and will get your contract accepted more quicker.
So Yes called the Listing Agent.. If they don't respond quickly enough ,

And that's the Truth !
You're much better off, in my humble opinion, finding an agent who you like, and trust, to assist you in viewing properties, and help you assess their value and write those offers.
I've found that unattached buyers are often hesitant to use buyer's agents in this way, as they're concerned about "wasting their time", while they're just "looking around". But I can assure you that most agents want you to call them for this task. This is what we do for a living. You will not be wasting our time.

Generally speaking you should have an agent that represents your best interest only. In our area the seller pays the agent's/broker's commission; so why not, have your own representative for free? I'd be happy to represent you and supply you with whatever information availble to help you make a great home purchase. Take a look at our web-site when you have time. Steve
I (almost) always recommend that buyers work with a buyer's agent. The reason is simple: an agent representing both the buyer and seller inevitably runs into situations where looking out for the interest of one party compromises the interest of the other party.
In addition to that, a competent buyers agent will have knowledge about neighborhoods, negotiating strategies, problem solving skills, and a lot more, all of which will be used to your advantage!
A good buyer's agent will pinpoint exactly what what kind of property you are looking for, and show you what's on the market that fits your needs. It takes all the work off your hands, and into the hands of someone who can do it much more efficiently and effectively (no offense).
