Buyers (especially first-time buyers) often think the best way to shop for a home is to drive around and call listing agents to get information about homes they think they like.
If you’re a buyer, that approach is the fastest way there is to end up with a herd of real estate agents pursuing you.
Because those listing agents will assume that you aren’t represented by your own buyer’s agent and do their best to convince you to work with them.
Those yard signs are nothing less than “bait” designed to lure you into calling the listing agent.
Driving around and calling listing agents is, by far, the most difficult way to find the right home.
The easy way to find the right home is to have your own buyer’s agent use their access to Intermountain MLS to find every available listing that matches your criteria.
Having one experienced, competent, responsive agent representing you will eliminate having to deal with listing agents frantically trying to get you to work with them.
It’s even more important to have your own buyer’s agent representing your best interests.
Because the listing agent represents the seller; not you!
That listing agent has promised to get the highest price and most favorable terms for the seller; not you!
Can you spell c-o-n-f-l-i-c-t-o-f-i-n-t-e-r-e-s-t ???????
The bottom line?
Find and hire an experienced, competent, responsive agent to represent you (and only you) as your buyer’s agent.
Then, let your buyer’s agent do the “homework” (pun intended) and search MLS for properties that match your criteria.
Doing so will make your life a lot easier, and you’ll be able to focus on the properties that are the best fit for you.
Best of all, having your own buyer’s agent costs no more because your buyer’s agent will be paid from the seller-paid commission.
