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)
