buying a home in Jacksonville Tag

Let's go over a common scenario: You're driving through one of your favorite neighborhoods and spot a house for sale that matches exactly what you're looking for in your next home. You haven't really started looking yet, or even listed your current home, but you can't pass up on this one. You call the number on the sign, set up a viewing appointment with the agent and end up putting a contract on the home a few days later with the same agent.
Whoa.
Although common, this scenario poses all kinds of problems for the buyer. Buying a home is like an intricate dance of home searches, showings, compromises, negotiation tactics, financing and legal obligations, and when you choose to forgo the help of a professional, you can miss out on some vital steps. Here's what you're missing out on when you don't opt for a buyer's agent.
