Buyers Going Direct To List Agent

Real Estate Agent with Allison James Estates & Homes 01079287

All buyers deserve to have proper representation and it’s impossible if the listing agent is doing his job properly. My team and I are listing agents, and we ONLY represent the seller.There are always bumps in the road to the closing table, and buyers without representation are at a great disadvantage.Our seller will always win if the buyer is without representation.

We make it clear that the seller is represented by us.We make it clear in writing and verbally.We tell the buyer he can have representation and if he decides against it, we will continue to represent the seller.Most have buyer agents and that’s a clean deal, in my opinion.

Listing agents, do not encourage buyers to work directly with you.It’s not to anyone’s benefit, especially yours.The clean deal is the goal.

Realtor simple guideline to guesstimate a Homes values! Comparing apples with oranges? How to set values for embellishments? Do you think the old adage of Value equals Location, Location, Location, is true? Views, Pools, special interest additions can add desirability, and then Granite Counters, Travertine flooring, condition, square footage and any embellishments, upgrades, updates you can add to a property is worth 60-70% of the cost. This value will also be depreciated over time. Example would you consider if a twenty year old solid oak cabinette's
value even in good condition is equal in value to cabinets in the newer current color, or are they? Objective would be desirability.

Location is the basis for value. Like Homes within a one mile radius share values, and can be evaluated by sales per square foot within the last 3+ months. Pulses

Dual representation is just not right in my book.
