To Buy A Home It’s Not Important To Have A Real Estate Agent

Another popular home buying misconception is that when buying a home, it’s not important to have a real estate agent.  It is possible to buy a home without the assistance of a real estate agent, but why would you do such a thing?

First it’s important to understand that in the majority of situations, a buyer will not be responsible for paying their real estate agent.  Having a top-notch buyers agent when buying a home can make the process much easier and less stressful than not having a buyers agent.  It is important to remember when deciding on who to choose as a buyers agent, that all buyers agents are NOT the same.

It’s strongly recommended when deciding on a buyers agent that you know how to properly interview prospective buyers agents.  Also make sure you don’t select the first agent you speak with because they are your colleagues brother or sister.  Having a top-notch buyers agent can not only make the home buying process less stressful but also can give an advantage in a competitive sellers market.

As for Sellers:

The world has so many options to help you sell your home without paying a large commission. FlatPrice.ca gives you this option by placing your listing on the MLS system without paying a REALTOR a commission. I will place it on as a flat fee listing and you can sell it yourself. So yes, it is important to use a REALTOR to sel lyour home as well. Especially since you can list it on the MLS system yourself.
