Search for a Certified Workforce Housing Specialist

In your search for a home, a Workforce Housing Specialist Realtor® will help you find a home that fits your needs.  He or she may suggest potential lenders and provide information about the local schools, stores, property tax, etc.

When you are ready to make a purchase offer to the seller, your Realtor® usually will be the one to present that offer.  It will include the means of financing you will be using for the purchase.

The seller will typically pay the Realtor's® commission, based on the house's selling price, so you will probably not be responsible for that fee. You should, however, strongly consider enlisting a "buyer's agent"– a Realtor® who will represent your interests in the transaction.
