Not only are Realtors governed by state and provincial licensing regulations, but they are also held to a higher standard and ethics at the local, state and national level.

Tips, Tricks and Thoughts:
Make a list of priorities and Love your "lived in" spaces -What do you absolutely need or can't live without. Focus on falling in love with the spaces you will spend the most time in rather than every space.
Stick to your budget - Speak to a lender first, get pre-approved and then start your search. There may be some wiggle room in market prices, but don't torture yourself by looking at homes over your budget.
Reno or move-in ready? - Know if you are wanting to undertake a renovation before you start looking. There are renovation loans available. Speak to a lender to learn more. Also, inform your agent so that they can help you find the best "project" with the most to gain.
Look past the "ugly" onto the potential - Carpet, paint and light fixtures are all cosmetic items that can be changed. Decide if you like the "flow" and the layout before you check it off the list because 70's wallpaper isn't your style.
