Many of my customers are Professionals in many fields and perform their jobs but they have. They have no idea when they all are currently trying to do is get information. Dealing with real Estate agents is not tough to do as long as you understand when looking for a house, the protocol to use. Below is a list.
- You have to understand that all realtor work on commission basis. There could be a very few that work on wages but not one that I know. A realtor may find a contract but in the event the agent does not close does not get paid. Property agents are treated by men and women and that they work at no cost. Realtors do not work so if you plan on not having a realtor does not ask them to work for you.
- Keep all appointments and be instantaneous. Respect your broker and use common courtesy. Do not expect an agent they are doing to run out to show you a house. They have family and clients. If an appointment is made by you, and something comes up, do not forget about it. Call the broker and inform them what time you will arrive and that you are going to be late. Set up another time for another appointment if you are going to be late.
- Choosing a realtor. You must choose whether you will address the listing agent of a home for sale with no representation, or are you going to find your own real estate agent to work with you? You want to interview several agents to ascertain which one you feel the most comfortable with, if you will employ a broker to work with you. Interviewing to agents from the company is not a thing to do. Inform the agents that you are currently interviewing what point of the interview process you are in. Are you in the point of making a decision on which realtor to use or you starting your interviews.
- Call the listing agent of a house when you are working with a buyer’s agent to not. The listing broker is working for the seller, not a purchaser. If you requested the selling agent to represent you, and the broker chose to represent both the seller and you, the broker will be working under agency. Here in Florida, the broker would need to move to a transaction broker agent from one agent. Listing agents do not need to do the job of the agent of a buyer. They are listing agents.
