Purchasing a home requires making many important decisions. You will sign lots of paperwork and have to keep track of many moving pieces. That is why you will want to find a local real estate agent to be your advocate. They will need to be able to give you solid advice and will communicate throughout the transaction. Pennsylvania homebuyers always have the right to their own representation when buying a house. A buyer’s agent can show you different homes, and as they get to know your preferences, can point out properties that you may have overlooked. A buyer’s agent represents your interest in a real estate transaction and since the commission to pay your agent is usually prearranged to be paid by the seller, as a buyer you usually only pay a small fee for the services of your real estate agent.
