Looks like you want to buy a house. With all of the searching that you are doing for properties, do you realize that you would really benefit from using a Realtor in your search. Here's why: 1. They do the search for you and take their time (not yours) to find the homes that meet your needs. You get to then actually go into and see the property first hand. 2. It costs you NOTHING. The Seller is the one that pays the Realtor's commission. 3. You get (again, for "FREE"), Buyer's protection and representation throughout the entire process of buying your home. That's professional "FREE" help. No catch!! And, if you don't like the Realtor, find a new one!!
Makes you wonder why someone would want to be a Realtor, doesn't it? All the effort with the "hopes" of payment at a closing. And yes, many a times a Realtor works very hard for a client and then for whatever reason ( I could name hundreds...) the "deal" falls apart and they are never paid a cent, let alone a dime!!!
Anyway, that's another topic for a rant blog on being a Realtor. Bottom line is, get a Realtor!
