Who were you talking about with before? There are no fees for working with a buyer's agent because their commission is paid for by the seller. Finding a 2br with a FHA loan is competitive around the LAX surrounding area and having a good agent will help. Interview and/or call REALTORS on here and find one that you're comfortable with. I sell in the Inglewood area and depending on your wants and your motivation - maybe I could help.
The buyerâ€™s agent fee is paid by the selling office. Commissions will vary depending on what is offered by the seller on the specific property. The best agents will save you more than the commissions involved through market knowledge, negotiation skills and having connections to great vendors. I would put your emphasis on finding the best agent available. If you need a referral, send me an email and I can suggest a couple of agents I know in your area.
