Record-low interest rates and record-low housing prices are renewing interest in the floundering housing market for many people. Now could be the time to sell and buy a new home and earn an even bigger slice of the real estate pie.

However, not having a knowledgeable agent to navigate the process can end up costing more money in the long run.

The agent also negotiates for the buyer and seller to help them make important financial decisions.
