Sure they do, but remember, that agent is representing the seller, and should immediately have you sign a disclosure that you understand that they do not represent you.
You would do better by meeting with a realtor that works the area you are interested in, and they can set you up to get emails as listings that meet your criteria come on the market - lots of seller hold off listing till after the holidays - so starting 12/26 the hot new ones start hitting the market.
This willl ultimately save you lots of time - you can drive by and look at the listings without the hassel of one of us realtors sitting beside you,, and choose the ones that you want more information on, and YOUR REALTOR, if they are good will save you up to $15,000 in your purchase, and remember the tax credits that you may or may not qualify for - $ 6500 or $ 8000!
Call me if you want that free service of email notifications.
