Here is the dirty little secret realtors don’t want you to think about for too long – even as a buyer’s agent, their interests are never 100% in line with yours. No matter what, the more you pay for a house the more money they make. The faster you find a house and settle on it, the faster they get paid and the more time they have available to work on other deals. The fewer issues that are raised through a home inspection, the less chance there is of the deal falling through.
So remember, when you are dealing with a realtor – yes, they work for you, but first and foremost, they work for themselves.
