Now that you know that house is not for sale, let me suggest what your next step should be if you plan to buy a home.
Buying a house is a BIG deal. Your first course of action is to find an experienced local Realtor who can guide and assist you.
Your Realtor will sit down with you and discuss the criteria for your desired home. Your Realtor will help you to find appropriate financing, if needed. Your Realtor will show you homes; help you put together an offer when you find the home that is right for you; negotiate with the seller on your behalf; help you through the escrow, inspections, and full loan approval process; explain and assist you to understand the closing documents and closing process and â€“ wonderful time for all â€“ hand you the keys to your new home when escrow is closed.
And â€“ this is the really good part â€“ the cost of all of the professional help and guidance from your Realtor is almost always paid by the seller!
How to find a Realtor? Ask friends, relatives, co-workers or your banker or insurance agent for a recommendation. Talk to two or three of the Realtors who are recommended and decide who seems to be the best fit for you.
