Those of you who have read my numerous articles in the past, understand my stance on real estate buyer agents. I am a firm believer that a buyer will not only receive better representation, but will also achieve a better deal when utilizing the services of a buyers agent; as opposed to buying direct through the listing agent. I was inspired again to reiterate this feeling when I received an inquiry on a property today from a buyer. Once the buyer realized I was not the listing agent, they (respectfully) told me that they have been working on their own, doing all of the legwork to find their next home. They feel that they will be able to negotiate a better deal working direct with any given listing agent. While I respect and appreciate their honesty, I have to shake my head in disagreement.
