A lot of first time home buyers tell me they have friends and relative who will help them to buy.The question is -Do you want to invest over Half a Million without consulting an expert? Should you buy properties from your friends and relations or on their advice.
Detached Homes are different from buying a Condo or Booking a New Condo. Google helps a lot but there are a lot of other unseen things that come with experience.On an average I show 20 to 25 home as a week. Do you think your friends or relations can have that kind of experience ? Ask your friends what will be the most expensive unit in a building and they will have no answer !!!!
