I'm always amazed as I talk with people how really very little knowledge that they have in understanding the real estate market.
For instance: they do not understand that you can have a buyers agent and then there is the sellers agent.
So many times I have sold to a client, they loved my service, they were very pleased in how the whole transaction went. I had found the home or condo for them.
Then they go to purchase again somewhere and they go right to the listing agent to buy the property. When I tell them that agent is representing the seller, I would have thought you would contact me to represent you as buyers agent, being you loved all I did for you.
They will say, "Oh, I didn't know that you could help us on this purchase."
AND also: when a " For sale By Owner" has a sign in their yard, I tell them be ready for the realtors to start knocking on your door saying they have a buyer for their home.
I tell them this is when you say, " OK I'll give you an Authorization to show". Then IF THAT AGENT DOES HAVE A BUYER, THEN OK, you pay them 3%. BUT WHAT MOST AGENTS ARE TRYING TO DO IS GET YOUR LISTING. So, home owners, I would love to give a seminar on the 101 of Real Estate.
Remember my web site is " SAVING YOU MONEY" I GOT YOU COVERED, DISCOUNT BROKER.
LET MR HELP YOU, if you are a FSBO I can do all the work after you get buyer and you only pay $2500. NOT 6%.
