How to Buy a House

Buying a house is a path often crowded with Realtor traps for even the savviest buyers. CAARE wants to help you avoid the pitfalls and help you reduce the risk of a bad transaction or being exploited. Our instructions are not meant to be thorough and can vary from state to state so be sure to talk with an attorney first. One rule appears to be universal, avoid large real estate brokerage firms.

Hire a Real Estate Attorney First.

A good real estate attorney can help you negotiate your Realtor fees or provide good advice if you are going to buy your home yourself without a Realtor.
