Good Morning Tbcytdg,
As a buyer, the services you receive from a REALTOR, don't cost you a penny. The agent is paid by the seller of the home. So make sure that whoever represents you in your transaction has your best interest at heart. Make sure they are listening to your needs and have a clear understanding of what you want.
That said, let the agent do the job that you have essentially hired them to do. So many times, our clients like to help us by looking for homes on the Internet, and with all of the Information that is available out there you can get yourself overwhelmed. By our education and our memberships in the various associations that we belong too, we have all of the homes at our fingertips with the MLS. And we have the ability to know certain information about the homes that you aren't privey too.
Make sure the agent is a good fit...like Dune said, Interview a few and see if you find one that's perfect for you. You can always ask for references of past clients to make sure your feelings about the agent are genuine. Good Luck and Happy Hunting.

There is a real estate office in Old Town Temecula called Family Ties realestate. I just bought a Temecula home through them in March and they were very honest.

How many Agents do you think looked at your question and said to themselves (Honest, expert, well that leaves me out I better not respond) ?

Interview any and all Agents you may consider, you are hiring services they are selling their services. Be sure you know what your goals are so you can decide who best may help you attain those goals.
Find out how they intend to help you and be sure you are comfortable working with them as this is quit possibly the Largest financial committment of your life.

Good luck, Dunes

Pre-approval is essential if you want an expert agent to take you on as a client. If you want a referral for a lender please let me know.

Hi There 1st Time Home Buyer (Tbcytdg),
My name is Ricki Lynn Miller and I am a Realtor that Serves SW Riverside and North San Diego Counties.
I saw that you are inquiring about a 1st Time Home Buyer program for Temecula. Temecula does have a first time homebuyer program unfortunately, its guidelines make it near impossible to use. I work with a local Temecula Lender and he has only heard of one individual being able to qualify for this program.
My suggestion to you would be, if you have not Pre-Approved yourself with a lender, do this now. There are other programs out there to assist buyers such as yourself. A good local lender will be able to find something to fit your need and you can always ask the seller for help. Even in this market, sellers do pay closing costs. I recently had some pre-approved buyers, beat out 11 other offers to get the home that the wanted and the bank was more than willing to cooperate.
If you would like to talk with me, I would be happy to answer any questions that you have.
Thanks for posting.

I wonder why Tatyana does not list herself as an agent in her profile. Suggestion: interview at least three agents.
