There are two basic types of
buyers. The first kind of buyer is the one who thinks that the way a realtor
makes house hunting easier is by eliminating all the houses that are either too
big or too small, too unattractive, too overpriced by unrealistic owners, or
houses that are just not what they think their buyer wants. The second group of
buyers is terrified that the realtor will miss the absolutely perfect house, and
they want to see everything.
You don't really have to see every house on the
market if you can establish good communication with the realtor with whom you
decide to work. If the realtor encourages feedback and tries hard to listen to
what you say and to what you don't say, and you feel he or she truly understands
your criteria and will be able to narrow down your choice to the homes which
would suit your needs, then there is really only one type of buyer to be.
