Buying your first home is a significant milestone in the journey of adulthood. Sure, owning non-stick pans, separating your whites from your colours, and eating a salad because you want to rather than because you have to are all incredible grown-up achievements, but nothing says "I'm an adult" quite like buying your first actual, real-life home.\nHowever, as we (adults) all know, the excitement can quickly wear off when the weight of responsibility begins to sink in. For example, you have to figure out where you want to live, what you want in a house, and who you're going to trust to be your real estate agent.\n@kaievaembedded via\nThat last one can be super tricky considering there are so many different options (and yet, so little information) out there, but it's absolutely essential. Agents can be a valuable partner when buying a home. They can provide you with information on things like what to watch out for in a given neighbourhood - things that that you would be hard-pressed to find elsewhere, and their knowledge of the home buying process can be extremely valuable. So where do you find a great agent, and how do you know you've found the best? Well, luckily there's an app and website to help you out with exactly that.\n@nobulrealestateembedded via\nNobul is an innovative, new real estate platform that focuses on helping Calgarians navigate through the world of real estate. More importantly, they're totally different from other real estate sites: Instead of giving you just any agent, they connect you with the right agent for you.\nCurious as to how it works? If you're a home-buying hopeful, all you have to do is provide nobul with information about the type of property you're looking for. Then, based on your input, agents will send you their best, custom-tailored offers and you get to choose the one that makes sense to you. You actually get to hand-pick who you work with based on how well you think they've understood your house-buying needs, and the agents may even offer to pay you for choosing them.\n@calgarysoldembedded via\nNobul provides consumers with transparency,personalization and a simple, rewarding experience using smart technology. They make it easy for users to find an agent they really want to work with - after all, according to founder Regan McGee, "the key to a good experience in real estate is having a great agent." But the good news doesn't even stop there.\nRight now, nobul is offering to pay you $1,000 if you find agent and buy or sell a home. Hoping to close a deal soon? They're also giving $100,000 to one lucky winner who closes a deal by August 31st, 2018.\nSign up for nobul now online or through their mobile apps for Android or iOS, and check out their Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages for more info!
