At this point, your real estate agent will sit down with you and go over a list of homes that meet your criteria. Your agent takes care of setting up appointments for you to tour your favorites.
STEP 4 — Make an Offer
Once you’ve found the perfect property, meet with your agent to formulate an offer. The Realtor will negotiate on your behalf, getting you the best price and perks for the deal.
