Bill and Liz have been on my reading list for years. Again, they have posted great information that I feel is important in this market too. Thanks to Bill and Liz Spear for allowing me to repost their great information.
If you're considering buying a Cincinnati area patio home, you've probably found us. We've put more info on the Internet about Cincinnati patio homes and communities than any other agent. It's our specialty, so you'll find us our blog posts, Pinterest pages and especially when searching Cincinnati patio homes for sale you'll find pages and pages of custom search pages that make your patio home search just that much easier.
If you're a buyer that has hired us to help you find that best matching patio home for you, when you call wanting to see a patio home it's just a matter of getting an appointment set up that is mutually acceptable to you, me and the seller. It won't always be the same day, but it won't be long after.
However, if you're a buyer that finds our search pages and finds a match that interests you, and then calls or emails us about seeing a home, it's not quite a simple. We're going to have a question:
"Are you working with an agent or have one that would write the contract if you loved the home you want us to show?"
Your response to that question determines what happens next. Chances are the patio home you find on our site is NOT our listing, but shared via a service called IDX. IDX is what enables us to share Cincinnati MLS patio homes for sale on our site, whether or not it's our listing.
A "No" answer means we can help you.
A "Yes" answer and we're handcuffed.
What you may not realize is there are basically only TWO ways that an agent gets paid:
1. By being the listing agent and representing the seller and causing the home to sell.
2. As a buyers agent helping you find the right home, showing you the home, writing the contract and guiding you through the process all the way to the closing table.
So if you read #2, can you see how a "Yes" answer because you already have an agent that will write the offer ensures we have ZERO means of ever earning a paycheck for showing you the home UNLESS we also had the home listed.
So while you can look at our website and find lots of useful information. one thing we can't do for you if you already have an agent is show you the home you think might be THE ONE unless WE are the listing agents.
We're not going to try to "steal" you from the other agent, but you do need to consider, why is YOUR agent not the one showing you the home and providing you advice?
Ready to get started? Just give Bill a call at 513-520-5305 and we can discuss how we can help you find the best patio home for you!
