Thanks for the given recommendations! I think they will help many people when they are going to buy a house. I should say that some even don’t need real-estate agent! Nowadays there are so many possibilities to find the house at different websites that can provide you with the same information that your real estate agent never won’t do. For example, he won’t say you everything about the house (some problems that it has)! It is not in his interests! No seller will tell you that the house has a leaking roof and it is horrible to live! He seller pays the agent! They will make their best to persuade you to buy the house you’ll regret about in future! Be cautious and every time have your personal inspection. When we were looking for a house together with my husband we tried to search using some criteria’s. For instance, the price we were willing to pay for it. I can recommend you http://edinburgh.localmartuk.com/property-for-sale/ as it helped us a lot. You can choose there the price and also look through the photos of the house and then contact the owner. If you are considering taking the loan, read attentively every single detail and consult your lawyer to make sure you understood everything and agree on such terms.
