What to Look for In a Realtor When Buying a Home

Posted by Chris Sain on Jun 13, 2019 3:52:53 PM

Looking to buy your first home; how do you start? Your best first step is to contact ChoiceOne Bank and get preapproved for your home loan or attend our upcoming first-time homebuyer seminars at the Grand Rapids branch on June 26 & 29. You’ll need to know how much house you can afford to begin your house hunting.  Once you know what price range you are in, then you’ll need to find a realtor. Especially for first-time buyers, a realtor makes for a better experience because they will know the housing market. In a competitive market, this will be your next best step as your realtor will keep you informed about the homes for sale and negotiate your desires.
