Real Estate Guide – Seller Information
The Real Estate Agent you work with could be one of your most valuable resources.

Real Estate Agent can help you determine how much home you can afford. Often a REALTOR can suggest ways to accrue the down payment and explain alternative financing methods.
Real Estate Agent, in addition to knowing the local money market, also can tell you what personal and financial data to bring with you when you apply for a loan.
Real Estate Agent is already familiar with current real estate values, taxes, utility costs, municipal services and facilities, and may be aware of local zoning changes that could affect your decision to buy.
Real Estate Agent can usually research your housing needs in advance through a Multiple Listing Service–even if you are relocating from another city.
Real Estate Agent can show you only those homes best suited to your needs–size, style, features, location, accessibility to schools, transportation, shopping and other personal preferences.
Real Estate Agent often can suggest simple, imaginative changes that make a home more suitable for you and improve its utility and value.
Real Estate Agent is sensitive to the importance you place on this major commitment you are about to make. Look for a real estate professional to facilitate negotiation of a win-win agreement that will satisfy both you and the seller.
