When you’re out looking to buy a home, you should have an agent on your side to help you find potential properties and guide you through the complicated process. However, a lot of buyers have been going rogue lately and getting in trouble because of it.
In today’s world, you can go online, click on a listing, and talk to the first agent that reaches out to you. A lot of them will ask if you are working with another agent. If you are, you should always say yes. If you are working with an agent and you say no, you are setting up your agent to not get paid.
You need someone in your corner.
The agent that opens the door for you is the one that is going to be paid for selling that home to you. Telling an agent you aren’t working with anybody just to get in the door is a bad move in the long run. Instead of the process becoming about you and your home, it will become all about conflict.
It’s important to be loyal to the agent you’re working with because it is their job to protect you and make sure you are getting the best deal possible. You can’t do that if you embark out on your own and lead other agents to believe that you don’t have anyone representing you. You need someone in your corner, especially when buying a home.
