- Buyer does not have an agent.
- Buyer sees a home for sale on the internet.
- Buyer calls Listing Agent to see the home.
- Listing Agent sends an "Associate" to show the home to the Buyer.
- Associate asks Buyer if they have an agent.
- Buyer says "No."
- Associate shows Buyer the home.
- Buyer says they may be interested but still need to find an agent to represent their best interests.
- Associate says, "If you want to buy this home, I will be the one to write up the offer because I'm the one who will get paid. You are free to get your own agent, but your agent won't be paid."
What is the "Associate" talking about?
Why will that Buyer's agent not be compensated?
Do you see anything wrong (anti-consumer) with this picture?
How could the listing agent and/or the "associate" have better handled the situation?
(I know the answers to these questions, I would like to hear your comments though.)
Buying a home in the near future? Make sure you get an Agent on YOUR side of the transaction!
