Whichever way you choose, it is very much in your interests to have an agent work with you, someone who knows the housing inventory here very well and knows the nuances of the market (she says as she writes from her home office in her Park Slope townhouse). A good buyer's agent takes you through every step of the process with ease, making what could be a very stressful time much smoother. Best of all there is no cost to you as the seller always pays the commission.
