BUYER’S AGENT INTERACTIONS
The buyer’s agent will typically expect to receive 2-3% of the purchase price, otherwise they would not be keen to show your property at all.
Before you share the key lockbox combination with an agent you will need to run their details through this three point check:
– Ask them to text you their website address — check that the website has their full name listed.
– Search their name in the following real estate license check websites
Make sure your Information Sheet, FAQ sheet gets into the hands of buyers and their agents. These handouts will not only inform potential buyers about the specifics of your property but also give them something tangible to take home, ensuring that they’ll remember your listing.
Be careful about revealing too much information about your personal circumstances in selling, such as you are needing to sell by a certain date. This would give the agent the impression that you would be flexible on the price and which could be later used against you in price negotiations.
