Many shoppers, lest I say buyers, in today's real estate market shop around by calling the agent on the sign out front. They want to see the property. They have questions. Yadda yadda yadda.
But they fail to stick with one agent. Why?
I believe it is because they do not understand how real estate agents work, especially how they get paid. I will explain this here.
First of all, the agent who is named on the sign in front of a house works for the seller - not the buyer. Sure they will answer your questions and show you the house. They will even help you buy it. But they still represent the seller. They are paid by the seller.
The truth is the buyer's agent is paid by the seller too. But the buyer's agent represents the buyer. So as a buyer why not find you a local real estate expert to be your representative. It will not cost you a thing and they can
- Show you any house listed in the MLS system
- Contact any FSBO seller who has a property you may be interested in
- Educate you on the process
- Represent you with present the offer
- Advise through the inspections process
- Hold your hand to the closing!
If you are interested in buying a home in the Rockledge, Viera or Suntree areas of Brevard County, Florida, give me a call. I would welcome a chance to be your representative.
