Depends on if you want to hold onto a bit of cash instead of paying it out of pocket - assuming you're getting a mortgage. Net to the seller is the same, so doubt it makes a difference to them.

If you're paying cash it doesn't really matter either way, I'd advise to keep it simple and not worry about the seller credit.

Prior to consulting with a Realtor, I would contact a couple of Lenders and sit down with them to go over your financial status. He/she will be able to let you know how much of a home you can afford.
Once a figure has been determined, then you would contact a Realtor to assist you with finding a home to purchase. Most Realtors are going to ask you for your pre-qualification letter from your mortgage lender prior to showing you homes.

Choose a Realtor that you are comfortable working with and that listens to what your needs are.
Take your time and don't rush into purchasing a home.

Happy House Hunting!

Not likely, but it would be beneficial for you to sit down and speak with a Lender prior to you looking for a home. He/she will be able to gather your financial history and advise you as to how you should proceed.

Take your time when searching for homes. Make sure you have money for daily living expenses and repairs. The last thing you want to do is purchase a home and have no finances left to pay your bills and have some extra money for savings as well as some "just for fun" money.

Wishing yu the best of luck.
