How To Work With A Buyers Agent

This is a list that REALTOR Kathy McGraw of  White Water CA put together it’s to the point.

Did you know:

  • Your agent works on commission, not salary. If you cut them out of your home purchase they get nothing. (However, you can offer to pay an agent a flat fee or hourly fee in lieu of a commission paid by the seller)
  • If you already have an agent representing you, you shouldn’t ask another agent to show you a home. Agents respect the client relationship, and an ethical agent will not undercut an agreement made between you and a colleague.  Also often times it is against the Code of Ethics a REALTOR adheres to.
  • Real estate agents are busy professionals. They are not at your beck and call any hour of the day, ready to drop everything to show you a home right this minute. You are not your agent’s only client (this is a good thing!), and like you, real estate agents need to eat, sleep, and spend time with their families.
  • If your agent is not able to show you a home right this minute, it is not acceptable to call another agent and ask them to show you the home (see #2)

If you are looking or thinking about buying in Southern Colorado, Pueblo, Pueblo West, Penrose, Canon City, Hatchet Ranch or other nearby areas please contact Dena Stevens, I’d be happy to talk to you about the possiblities!
