(6) You Can Bypass Major Portion Of Broker’s Commission
It is one of the key dirty secrets your real estate broker will never tell you. Sometimes, inexperienced sellers of a house never come to know that they can even bypass services of real estate property broker.
This can be done through BYOB (Bring Your Own Buyers) on to the table to save the hefty brokerage fees. You can get benefit from BYOB plan by negotiating it before signing on with the agency.
You just need to disclose the name of legitimate buyers found through your own valuable efforts before hiring the broker.
However, you should never forget to do this in writing as a component of contract that you will be going to sign. If you are successful in closing a deal with your own buyer within negotiated time frame then you can easily bypass major portion of broker’s commission.

(7) Our Home Inspection Is Not Perfect
It is one of the most critical dirty secrets your real estate broker will never tell you. Real estate agent often recommends their own home inspectors to potential buyers for the inspection of house for sale.
These recommended inspectors are not perfectly evaluating the true value of a house. It is perhaps due to broker’s pressure to tell you about small problems only and ignoring big & major problems of house.
Homebuyers should select an independent & licensed home inspector. He/she can help you to evaluate a prospective purchase, recognize all major & minor problems and to get professional advice about the cost of fixing them.
