Home Buyer Questions: Will You Get a Better Deal from the Listing Agent?

Why It's So Important to Have a Buyer's Agent When Purchasing a Home!

If you are going to be buying a home you deserve to have representation...someone in your corner negotiating for you and having your best interests in mind.

You should also never allow dual agency where the agent represents both the buyer and seller. That is the same thing as having no representation.
Check out the additional information from +Bill Gassett about Dual Agency.

Bad Behaviors of Real Estate Agents that Consumers Need to Know

I have to agree with +Bill Gassett in this article. Intentionally overpricing a home to get a listing doesn't do a seller any good at all. It's a bad practice, along with others in this article on +IMfaceplate Review. Also included are other mythbusting articles to educate consumers about some of the fake news regarding the real estate market.
social sharing is encouraged!
Bad Behavior Buyers and Sellers Need to Be Aware Of
In real estate sales there are quite a few bad behaviors that real estate agents get involved with.

Buyers and sellers need to take off their blinders or the bags on their head:)

Take a look at the article at +IMfaceplate Review where I discuss some of these things.

There is an excellent resource from +Karen Highland that summarizes many of the myths and things that affect consumers in a negative way.

You will also see excellent references to articles on dual agency, as well as the practice of some agents to intentionally overprice homes and the damage that it does.
