You called some friends for references, you searched the Internet and you finally found a Realtor you want to hire.
The Realtor helped you find and negotiate the home. You are on the way to the closing and you're a little nervous things won't go just right. Maybe, there were a couple of small glitches, but the Realtor and the attorneys worked it out and everyone is happy. Handshakes, hugs and maybe a high five.
Now what? Is it goodbye to your Realtor? Hopefully, no. Your Realtor has become a close ally that can continue to offer services and guidance, especially if you are moving into a new area or buying a second home in a resort area, such as Cape Cod.
A good Realtor will guide you through home repairs, lawn issues and other , offering references, maybe even meeting them when you are unable. You can expect local tips on short cuts, not-so-well known beach access and the best restaurants or bar for any occasion.
