[Homestead] Real Estate Question

Keep in mind the seller hired the real estate agent to sell his land
& the real estate agent gets paid by a percent of the price. I don't
think you should be worried about taking the sellers time, after all
he is trying to sell the land. Answering questions of a buyer is part
of the job.
When we bought this place we 'hired' a real estate agent, we
explained what we had ($) and what we needed. She got us in to see
the houses we wanted to see and handled the paperwork when we made an
offer. She was paid by part of the sale price too, it took nothing
extra ($) on our part.
Hope this helps.
