Don’t be Vulnerable!
As a home buyer, any time you call a property's listing agent, you’re putting yourself in a vulnerable position. That agent—the one with his or her name on the yard sign, in the newspaper ad, or on the Multiple Listing Service—represents the seller. They are not on your side.
They May be Well Intentioned, But...
They may be very well-intentioned. But as noted, they’re just doing their job; it simply is not in their interest to tell you things that might be detrimental for home buyers. In fact, even if they wanted to tell you things that might benefit you, they may be prevented contractually—or even legally—from disclosing critical information.
Do Not Contact the Listing Agent
If you want to arrange a showing, do not contact the listing agent. Instead, to make sure your interests are served, contact The Home Buyers, Inc.
You know why lots of second-time home buyers choose an Exclusive Buyers Agent over a traditional real estate agency? It's because they've already been through the process—and realize there's a better way to buy a house.
