My family and I want to rent a condo or townhouse at the shore soon for our vacation. We are interested in going for just a week. This will be our first time going and I don't want the kids to be disappointed. I am grappling with the decision about whether it is better to rent directly from the owners or is it easier and safer to go through a real estate agent in the area. Is it more expensive to go through a real estate agent?
Please I need some help fast from those who have experienced the difference. Thank you in advance for your help.
