First thing you should do is find yourself a buyer agent who you will feel comfortable with. If you do not know any buyer agents, you can ask friends if they have one they can refer you to or you can ask family. If nobody has a buyer agent that they have used more than once and has good things to say about the agent, you can find one here on Trulia by reading the responses to you question or doing a search. Finding and building a trust worthy relationship is extremely important.
Once you find someone you feel you may mesh well with, schedule an appointment with that agent and that agent will guide you from there.
When a home sits on the market for a long time and what home owners fail to understand is that it hurts them in their wallet. Nothing good comes for home owners who allow their homes to just sit and get stale. On the other hand, its great for home buyers but only if your buyer agent is an expert negotiator. Its important to find an agent who is not afraid to be aggressive. An agent who is meek and timid usually is not good in confrontational situations or in situations where they have to be assertive.
