Working With Real Estate Agents: Common Myths

What’s the biggest myth you’ve heard about working with a real-estate agent? Most people would answer that they’ve heard real estate agents aren’t that helpful with finding a home and they’re just in it for the money. Others would say that real estate agents get you to sign a Faustian-like contract that is impossible to get out of. However, both myths aren’t true and working with an agent can be very helpful for a first-time home buyer.

Before you write agents off completely, follow these tips for dealing with the following myths from Military.com:

Myth No. 1 — I'll get the best deal on the house I want if I only call the agent listed on the For Sale sign.

Myth No.2 — The agent told me I had to sign a Buyers Agency agreement before he could work with me. I did and know I'm unhappy with the relationship.

Myth No.3 — I can find more homes for sale by calling more than one agent.

Myth No.4 — The agent with the most listings in town is the best agent to call.
