Choosing An Agent
Many first-time homebuyers begin their search by browsing for homes. Click on a website for more information on a home and you'll find yourself connected to an agent who is either the listing agent or an agent who has paid to receive sales leads in the town where that listing sits. While you're likely to wind up with a perfectly competent real estate agent in either case, it's not quite the same as choosing the person you'll spend the next few months working with every day. For the best experience, we suggest you start your search with the agent rather than the home. Find someone you're comfortable with and love talking to. All of our agents are skilled at assisting first-time homebuyers. Take a few minutes to find out what makes each of them special.

When you move, it's incredibly rare that the area you're leaving and the area you're moving to have the same cost of living. The Move Meter is an amazing (and fun!) tool that will help you understand the affordability of your new community and help you make an educated decision about your level of investment there.
You may have noticed a lot of similarity in property listings across websites. On VillageGreenRealty.com we give buyers something a little extra. We provide additional information on our own listings - adding details and descriptions that won't always fit into the MLS listings. There's a lot to say about a property! Look for the "Enhanced" banner on our listings for some special insights from The Local Experts.
