How to get an Agent?

The advantages of working with an agent are numerous. Your agent will list your property in the MLS (Multiple Listing Service), a national database of homes for sale. This means your home will be picked up by thousands of Web sites. You cannot list your own home in the MLS because only licensed Realtors can list homes there. But you can hire a “flat rate” broker who will list your property for a low fee, and then you handle the rest of the deal. If you decide to use a Realtor, hire someone referred by a friend. Think seriously before splitting your agent’s loyalty by allowing him to “double” — meaning, allowing him to represent both you (the seller) and someone else (the buyer).
