Again, Craigslist to the rescue. Though it turned out there was only one furnished apartment listing in the location and category I needed, it was a winner. I sealed the deal in a New york minute, and was ready to assume my new life in a new city.
A first time home buyer is at a real disadvantage. Because you haven’t done this before, there are plenty of things that you can overlook. A realtor will make sure you cover yourself adequately. This means making sure that every inspection has been done, that any septic or well permits are taken care of and that everything is in order with the property.

A realtor already knows all of that paperwork inside and out and they pass that knowledge along to you.

If you know any friends who are looking for a house or if you used a similar service when looking for the home that you’re selling, go with that one. Ideally, you’re looking for a site that features pictures (virtual tours attract a lot of prospective buyers) and an user friendly website.
All these benefits are available to you by just having one short sale listing. The first place to look to for short sale listings is your past clients. This may sound terrible however the ones who have bought in the most recent 5 years are the ones in the most danger.
