Just about any agent out here can sign an agreement to represent your buying interests exclusively. It's definitely best to approach a home of interest with an agent on your side, to avoid conflicts of interest, as well as receive the proper guidance and negotiations to ensure a smooth purchase.

If you have not yet secured an agent, please feel free to interview me. I'd be happy to go over the buying process specifics and get you into a great home at the best deal possible! You can also browse updated listings on my website, which is connected directly to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and provides accurate data. Just visit: http://www.NeedMyHomeSold.com/property-search.

When buying a home, the best place to start is to hire an Exclusive Buyer Agent. EBAs only work with homebuyers and there is never a conflict of interest that will jeopardize your negotiating position.

I am the owner/broker of one of Dallas' oldest and most successful Exclusive Buyer Agencies, HelpUBuy America. We charge a flat-fee for our services, so our fee is the same regardless of whether you buy a $150,000 home or a $500,000 home. This eliminates the conflict of interest that exists when you an agent is paid a commission based on the sales price of the home.

We've been protecting the rights of first-time homebuyers since 1995, and we'd love to assist you. I've also had a book published on Amazon called Buying a Home: Don't Let Them Make a Monkey Out of You. It'll be the best $6 you've ever spent.

Let me know if we can help.

Yep... some agents do that so they can sell it themselves and take both sides of the deal. It's a shameful practice. Just make a note of the agent and remember that event.

It is tough out there.
You might consider making offers without seeing the home if you think it is the right one.
