My wife and are (hopefully) going to be first time homebuyers in the near future. We know where we want to live, and I've been looking at listing for a few months just to try and get a feel for prices and home styles in the area. We're ready to call a realtor to use as a buyer's agent and start looking. I've noticed that the vast majority of the listings I've seen in the area I've been looking are posted by 2 realtors. (The two of them have the market pretty much cornered). My question is should I hire one of them, or would it be better to get someone from the outside? I can see how using of the two locals might be beneficial because they know the area, (I'm sure they know each other), and a lot of the listings would be their own. On the other hand, they have a definite advantage to move their own listings, and to sell them for more. An outside realtor might be better able to give me an unbiased perspective. What do people think?
