Reminder to all that IAW the TOS for this site....Realtor recommendations are okay but must be sent to the requestor via DM and not posted in the open forums.

To SUAZ, we always recommend that you find a "Buyer's Broker" who is a Realtor that looks out for YOUR interests. Often it entails signing a contract with them; I've done it several times and been very pleased with the results.

I'm not a Realtor nor do I work with or for any Realtor or any person or firm of any sort in any way in the housing industry.

I would recommend you ask any prospects about their tenure in COS and what they know about the area. While I'm sure there are some very good real estate sales people out there, you want to make sure you have one that is more than casually familiar with the area. Truly knowledgeable real estate brokers will know about underground water issues, mine subsidence, and expansive soil areas and can help you navigate around these. Casual ones will focus in on selling views, age of structures, and finishes.

Many of the really good ones are too busy to take on new clients.

As someone who might need a realtor for that area soon, I have to say that is some really great advice!

Hope it helps. As our population has grown, so has our selection of realtors. Some are very good at selling properties and are really great people, they just lack the history to be able to give you the heads up of all possible risks of buying in every area.

Feel free to come back here for additional info as you go through the process. While we do tend to have some trouble prone areas, there are still places within those zones that are okay. Due diligence is a hallmark of mountain states real estate buying.
