Why I Can't Tell You if the Long Island NY Home Is Overpriced or Not
When I am working with a buyer and showing them homes listed with brokerages other than my own brokerage, I am a Broker's Agent. Therefore, I am representing the seller. (Read about agency relationships here.)
With that said, when you ask me if the home you are interested in is overpriced, I won't and can't tell you.
By giving you that information while representing the seller, I am breaking agency disclosure law. Don't ask me to do that because it won't happen. I will never risk my license for anyone.
I also will not check off Buyer's Agent on the New York Disclosure form without a Buyer Brokerage Agreement signed by the buyers and myself. Why? Some area brokerages are not offering compensation to a buyer's agent so without a Buyer Brokerage Agreement in place, I will not get paid. In this instance, my fee is incorporated into your offer and you will never pay more for a home than you want.
I understand why buyers do not want to work solely with one agent. You do not know me but I also do not know you. For the first time a few months ago, I had to release a buyer from our exclusive relationship. I can't go into details about why but it was truly necessary.
Buyers can do the same thing. If the agent they hired isn't doing their job like not returning phone calls and emails, the buyers can request to be released from their agreement with their agent.
All you have to do is work with the agent for a week or two to get a feel for them before signing the Buyer Brokerage Agreement. I offer my buyers this option first because I want them to be comfortable with me and I them. Keep in mind I'm working for the seller at this point. Once you feel comfortable and are happy, sign it and get representation because buying real estate isn't as easy as it seems.
