Why buy a home?
As found in a Realtor.com® survey of more than 1,000 home shoppers, many young adults are being pushed towards owning a home due to the increasing rentals costs, with 23 percent of those between the ages of 18 and 34 citing rising rents as a trigger for purchasing a home. Realter.com®’s chief economist Danielle Hale explains that even in the current unique housing market with low inventory and high prices, most shoppers still want some classic features. Older home-buyers desire privacy and the ability to age comfortable while millennials emphasize family needs, stability, and personal expression.
“Using a real estate agent is a very good idea,” says the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). “All the details involved in home buying [and selling], particularly the financial ones, can be mind-boggling. A good professional can guide you through the entire process and make the experience much easier.”
Selecting the right professional is the key to a successful real estate transaction. Better than working with a simple real estate agent, you’ll want the services of a Realtor®.
What’s the Difference Between a Real Estate Agent and a Realtor?
More than two million people have earned real estate licenses but only a small percentage of these are Realtors. Realtors are members in good standing of the National Association of Realtors, their state association of Realtors and a local real estate board. Realtors are held to high standards of ethical behavior and must undergo continuing education annually to remain accredited.

Renters who have a pet or more than one pet may face additional challenges when renting a condo or a house. One of the primary challenges renters may face is finding a living situation which is acceptable to them and also willing to accept their pets. This may be difficult as many rental properties do not allow pets at all. Those who do allow animals on the property may place certain restrictions on the size and breed of animals which may reside on the property.
Your agent is capable of helping you identify and target properties that allow pets. Your rental agent may save you a lot of time and may get you your next home with the least amount of troubles. [Read more about rental agents.]
