Some agents ask you to fork out hundreds – sometimes thousands – of dollars in upfront advertising money before your property’s even sold. All of which advertises the agent. If your property doesn’t sell, you lose all this money! Some agents tell you that your property is worth one price and then, later, once they’ve signed you up, they’ll tell you it’s worth a much lower price. And they’ll still want a big commission if they sell it at the lower price. Some agents restrict buyer inspections on your home to just one hour at one open-for-inspection per week. If your property is not selling, some agents will forget about the fact they told you it was worth a high price and they’ll start pressuring you to sell for a low price. Seriously, some agents must think you came down in the last shower.
