Know the 3 largest scams associated with the real estate industry. A new service provided by the Buyer Agent Search program helps consumers question agent compensation and negotiate something new.
An new consumer service examines the 3 largest real estate scams as discussed at the Colorado KHOW Real Estate Consumer Radio Show hosted by Denver host, Barry Miller, and Colorado Springs co-host, Larry Stanley. As per the host, the top 3 biggest “scams” involve the traditional structure of compensation paid to real estate buyer agents, seller agents and lenders.
The radio show airs at 8:00 am and 11:00 am on Saturdays in Colorado. This specific episode examines the Jan. 5, 2019 commentary, with additional insights from the author. The report may be found here: http://buyeragentsearch.com/buyer-agent-search-examines-largest-real-estate-scams/ along with a link to the full one hour broadcast of the show, and information on a free real estate investment seminar.
Kathleen Chiras of the Buyer Agent Search Network added, “An informed and educated consumer who is not afraid to ask a few questions will be in a much stronger position than ever these days. One of those questions to start the discussion may simply be, ‘How do you get paid’? or “Are you willing or able to put a cap on your commission?”
Chiras shared an inquiry made by a consumer who is looking for high-end property in Seattle, WA and wanted to know if the suggested agents might have a flexible commission. The client has a $2.5 million property in mind, and wanted to know if the agents recommended would be willing to negotiate an offer for a $10,000 agent commission. $10,000 is about what a buyer’s agent might make on a $330,000 sale. This kind of consumer inquiry is new for most agents. Chiras advised the consumer to meet with the agents and ask them for a breakdown of what they’re willing to do for their compensation, and the contingencies if that property doesn’t work out.
Finding a top-notch and knowledgeable real estate agent that is open to negotiating their commission may be hard since the fee is generally covered in the sales price of the property in the listing agreement. The Buyer Agent Search program is committed to providing highly-qualified agents that will only serve the consumer’s best interest, and be willing to discuss their compensation. To start looking for rated, reviewed, and experienced top-notch fiduciaries anywhere in the United States, Canada, and Costa Rica, consumers may go to https://buyeragentsearch.com/find-a-buyers-agent.
