Why I give free real estate advice with no strings attached. Answers are just a email or phone call away. Most real estate agent have been trained to try and persuade potential buyers or sellers to sign a contract before the real estate agent will give them any information. This is a foolish practice, because if a buyer or seller wants to try and to buyer or sell on their own I think they should try it. They need to understand why we as real estate agents are paid a commission. I think they should put the effort, learn the way to correctly price their home, find out what advertising is correct and gets the best response. I understand this and appreciate that they want to save the commission.
But statics do show that 94% of all real estate is sold by an real estate agent. But this doesn't mean that you can't buy or sell a property by yourself. Rather than fight common sense and human nature for those who are willing to try this, I recognize that it would be better to help them. In exchange for this help, I would like to earn additional business for myself through refferals to friends, relatives and coworkers who may be buying or selling in the future. Or even perhaps from you, if you decide that a do it yourself sale or purchase is taking to long or not working as you originally thought.
