Helping you is not their job. So do not call the listing agent.


Representing the seller is what listing agents are legally obligated to do. Regardless, of how they spin or twist the story.


There is “0” advantage to working through the listing agent. Do not call the listing agent.

Do not call the listing agent


Only an uninformed buyer thinks they will do better working with the listing agent. Smart home buyers do not call the listing agent.


A smart homebuyer knows that the listing agent is bound to the seller and therefore will hire their own Buyers Agent. Without someone to guide them, the buyer may be asked to pay for extra’s because they have NO ONE TO NEGOTIATE FOR THEM or tell them what is reasonable.


A buyer working through the listing agent is completely on their own. The listing agent is not even allowed to give buyer advice. Buyers without their own agent pay more and do not receive the best terms.


The listing agent will not reduce their commission


That is SOOOO TRUE. Buyers who think there is an advantage to using the sellers agent are dreaming. The listing agent will not cut their fee, so that you can pay less. Instead they will simply keep all of the commission instead of sharing it with a buyers agent. Understand this: the commission is split between the listing agent and the buyers agent. If there is no buyers agent, the listing agent gets to keep both sides.


A listing agent will also NOT pay for the buyers closing costs. They will also not rebate any money back to the buyer. In essence, the home buyer is just cheating themselves.
