Pick a real estate agent - Ask about other houses for sale nearby
A good agent should know about other available area properties "off the top of his head," says Irwin, who wrote "Tips &
Traps When Buying a Home." Mention a house in your area that's sold recently or is for sale. If the agent knows the

someone like that who's on top of the market."
