“You would be stupid not to buy this house,” she said, grasping both of my shoulders and reading my eyes carefully.

“Well, I uh…,” I stammered. I hadn’t expected to make a decision this soon. We had only seen about fifteen houses! It was too soon, right? How could I know?

That was five years ago. We did buy the house, and it has been one of the best decisions that my wife and I have ever made.

With today’s housing market, few things are certain for those looking to relocate. “Should I buy or rent? What makes a good neighborhood? Will we lose money? How do I know if I’m getting a good deal? How much house is enough, and how much is way too much?

These are just some of the questions that may spin endlessly around the minds of potential homebuyers, and each one is valid. Luckily, answers are never far away when you have the help of a knowledgeable, trustworthy real estate agent – which my wife and I were lucky enough to have.
