Hiring The Right Home-Buying Team

Take It And Run: Ilyce's Corner
By Ilyce Glink for Right at Home Daily

These days, it isn't enough to have a buyer's agent. You need a whole team of professionals to help you secure the right home.

While a buyer's agent is a good start, you should also find a good professional home inspector who will scrutinize your future home's physical condition. Is lead a problem in your area? You may wish to find a lead inspection service to test the home.

If you plan to use an attorney -- a wise idea for every sale -- find that attorney ahead of time. Not only can the attorney help you structure your offer to purchase, he or she can assist you in negotiating your buyer's agent agreement and other legal documents.

Before you start looking for a home, find a mortgage professional who offers reasonable rates as well as excellent service. You'll want to be pre-approved for your home loan so when you've finally found the right home, you'll know you can afford it.
