What is an agent?

The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "Agent"

There are some places you don't want to venture on your own:  dark alleys, jungles -- and the real estate market. You're probably going to need some help if you're selling or buying a home. An agent is a middleman -- or woman -- who can act on your behalf on of a real estate transaction.

Selling or buying a home can make anybody dizzy. There's all that gamesmanship if you have to negotiate a price, followed by all that paperwork! An agent can help you through it all and handle a lot of the heavy lifting.

To shop for the perfect home loan, visit the Mortgage section at Bankrate.com.
