You might wonder how to choose a real estate agent when buying an existing home that you will be remodeling. For a new home, your real estate agent choice is different. With an existing home, you want a real estate agent that knows the area where you want to buy your home. That person should have a good working relationship with remodeling contractors in the area. They should be able to find a neighborhood that fits with in your needs and the needs of your family. They may even be able to steer you towards a floor plan to seal the deal. It is important to have a working relationship with a contractor and designer before you buy. Contractors who are designers can better understand the challenges that come with a major remodeling.
Keep your ears open for personal referrals on real estate agents. However, make sure they work with a local remodeling contractor. Some real estate agents do not know how to handle a remodeling situation and will only make things worse.
