How much time do you want to waste with agents that won't give you the full story??
I have witnessed several times this week in League City, one agent in particular, known for discounting his/her commission. Yet, they don't take the discount themselves...
On the surface that may sound okay... if you've been drinking.
Underneath, however, I think the sellers would be horrified if they understood the implications. All the sellers care about is, what is the service of my agent costing me. Well, the truth is, if your agent is discounting the commission paid to a buyer's agent, they may be costing you the sale.
The most recent example I saw was an agent paying only $100 to the Realtor that brings the buyer. When many other homes in the same neighborhood pay 3% to the buyer's agent, why would any buyer's agent show that home??
It's pretty safe to say those homes will be on the market quite a while. But, do the sellers understand why?
