FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT DOES IT COST TO HIRE YOU AS MY REALTOR?
The compensation that we receive typically comes from the seller’s proceeds. In other words, there is no cost for a buyer to use a Realtor in a traditional Sales Representative/Buyer relationship. In a Buyer agency agreement, there may be some cost to the Buyer, but even these agreements are usually worded so that we are compensated from the Seller.
CAN YOU GIVE ME INFORMATION REGARDING PROPERTIES FROM OTHER COMPANIES?
Yes, if that other company is a member of Multiple Listing Service (MLS) – which most real estate companies are. For Sale By Owner properties are not listed on MLS so we would need to inquire directly with the seller on your behalf for a FSBO and we would use recent sales from MLS to help you determine fair market value.
WHAT IF I FIND A PROPERTY ON MY OWN?
You should contact us and not the property owner or the Realtor listing the property. Having the address or the MLS number is very helpful and will assist us in gathering information regarding the property so that we can help you determine fair market value.
WHAT TYPE OF INFORMATION WILL YOU NEED FROM ME?
We will need any type of information regarding the property you are looking for that is important to you. For example, number of bedrooms, price, location and number of bathrooms are common criteria. Other considerations include the school district and type of home (condo, semi, detached, etc.).
CAN I GO TO AN OPEN HOUSE WITHOUT YOU?
You can go to open houses without us. However, you should inform the attending Realtor that you already have your own Realtor working for you.
