I'm currently in the market for a starter home in Ohio in the $150k~200k range. I've been looking and touring houses through Redfin for around two weeks and it's been a discouraging process. I've been touring with an agent from Redfin and thought it would be fine, but I don't really see how working adults can manage to find a house without taking a day off to see it as soon as it goes live. Has anyone else experienced this in their search? Is this process easier with a buying agent?
