Warren County Ohio Real Estate News and Observations

You're NOT The Listing Agent??!

"I was just looking on your website and I have some questions about 123 Chantilly".

We regularly get calls that start in a similar manner.  And we'll fire up the MLS so can quickly gather more information and answer questions.  It's part of our role when we're helping buyers, assuming the caller doesn't already have an agent (we ask!).

Now for some callers, they're just looking for help and are happy to have a professional agent's assistance.

Other callers, they're looking for the listing agent and ONLY the listing agent.  Either they already have an agent or they've fallen victim to the myth that they can get a better deal by going directly to the listing agent.  Look, you and I know that's not true, but in general those callers that have that in their head are convinced I'm just trying to be self-serving by advising them of the hazards of going directly to the listing agent.

And in some cases, those callers can get a bit irate.

Here's the scoop.  We're NOT trying to pull a fast one on anyone.  As part of our membership in Cincinnati MLS, there's an agreement that allows us to post all Cincinnati MLS listings on our website via a service called IDX.

When you do a home search on our site, on the initial results for each home you'll see "Listing courtesy of _____________" and the Broker Reciprocity icon.  The listing agent's name and brokerage are clearly listed so if it's your preference to contact them directly, you can.

But keep in mind you lose your advantage when you go straight to the listing agent.

1.  They work for the seller.

2.  Their job is to sell you THAT house and not the one around the corner that might be a better fit and perhaps even a better value.

So while we're NOT the listing agent for most of the houses on our website, we might be the best possible help you can hire for your home purchase!
