Home For Sale 5237 Emerson, Palatine, IL. Fremd District
Will we give you back part of our commission if we help you buy a home? The answer for my team is “No”. With all the new financing rules and guidelines for the real estate market today, it is harder than ever to get our contracts closed. Now more than ever it is so important to work with a real estate agent that is experienced or working with an experienced team, that is involved in educating themselves on what is happening today. The market is changing on a daily basis with short sales, foreclosures, job losses, affordability index changes, your real estate agent has to be in the know on what is happening.
We have been getting many calls from buyers that want to see our listings with us saying they don’t have an agent they are working with or that they want to represent themselves. Then turn around and have their “agent” that is representing them write an offer and call me. First this is not ethical and how is this other agent that is giving you 20-25% of their commission and can’t even show you homes or help you find one or give you information about the area going to represent you in negotiating against a real estate agent that knows the market, is experienced and has sharpened their skills?
On a 350k home with 2.5% payout at a say even 25% refund to buyer at closing = $2187.50
Negotiating against an experienced, full time, educated real estate agent that knows the market = -$2187.50 plus probably even more of a savings of money and time for you.
Think about it…if your boss said to you that he/she wanted you to work twice as hard but is going to cut your pay by 20-25% how would you feel about doing your best?
If you would like full service help with a real estate team that is experienced even in Foreclosures and Short Sales contact my real estate team to help you buy your next home at the best price possible.
