letting agents and real estate agents have a few tricks up their sleeve to ensure that they get their commission. They have a trick where they will let someone move in for a fee and then change the locks so that other people wouldn’t be able to open the door and see the property. You also don’t want to let them know what your bottom price is for selling or what your high price is for buying because you want to be steps ahead of them.
- Even though real estate agents are good and showing you a property, they can lose the keys.
- Make sure to negotiate any fees with the real estate agent, don’t let them call all the shots.
- You don’t have to sign a long term contract, even though they make you feel like you do.
“Even though estate agents have got great systems and processes, they generally still have a key cupboard where they lock away all the keys and know exactly which key is for which property, but sometimes they tend to lose them.”
