I’m a Buyer’s Agent!?
Historically, I have been primarily a listing agent when it comes to Idaho real estate.
Last year was the first time that my buyer transactions crossed over the 50% point for my total productivity!
I am always telling people that I am a listing agent.
Today, I couldn’t believe the words that came out of my mouth!
I was meeting some buyers at a Meridian Idaho Home today, who happened to find it and me on my Idaho Real Estate Website.
Just when leaving with the prospective buyers, the doorbell rang. An older couple just happened to be driving by and asked if they could see the house. I said goodbye to my original buyers and then welcomed them in to take a look.
They asked me if I was representing this home and it caught me somewhat off guard. I said, “No, I am a buyer’s agent.”
As soon as those words came out of my mouth, I was shocked! I’ve always been a listing agent.
I was not the listing agent on this home, so I guess that made me a buyer’s agent, He then asked, “As a buyer’s agent, what do you charge?”
I love this… “It costs you nothing,” I said. “I get paid from the price of the home when you make an offer.”
I gave them my card, and asked them for their names and information. I believe I have a warm buyer prospect to work with now!
Can it be that I am shifting my business so much that I have become a buyer’s agent!
