Yes you can. Here's a reality check from a retired realtor in Westcester County. The truth is elsewhere in the U.S. (outside of NYC area) you cannot have more than 1 agent representing you which explains the replies below. However due to our large population, realtors don't have the time or follow up with buyers to see if they are still looking or have already signed a contract with a different realtor. Many realtors are busy and neglect buyers unless they are buying high priced homes - then suddenly the realtor is all over them because this agent will get a larger commission than another buyer looking at coops or condos.
It is a risk for you to be working with multiple realtors because the broker agreement that you sign states specifically that you will owe a commission to that broker IF you sign a contract with a different broker. You owe the 1st agent for business expenses that they spent on you. If you are looking at homes above $400,000., you definitely need to work with only 1 realtor. If you are looking at coops or anything under $400,000., you may be able to get away with multiple agents. The lower the price point, the easier it is in your favor. Just keep your mouth shut.... more
I have been taking the online course through FloridaRealEstateSchool.com, I have been enjoying the course. The course is fully narrated and is very detailed with lots of great stories and examples. I really like the format of the course. Its very easy to navigate and I love the narration. I like how the course is interactive. I feel like i am inside a classroom but in the front row. If I have a question I call the schools phone number and i press option 4 to speak with a real estate instructor and I speak with one anytime of the day or night. I called to speak with an instructor on Thanksgiving day and I was able to speak with an instructor. They really do offer 24/7 support it was amazing!. I am almost done with the course I am on chapter 15. Chapter 14 was their math chapter it was explained so well I understand how to do it. I just got 100% on the math quiz. So far, i am pretty happy with this course.

It depends how is selling it and how. Usually it is a difference in how you submit your offer, contingencies, and downpayment amount. Some are sold in the same way as regular listings( yet, banks are always to be an exception from disclosures), so are sold via auction services.
Who is the seller in your case?... more
Usually not, but it depends. For example, most short term leases would offer to cover all utilities for your convenience. You have to ask this question an agent, a manager, or an owner (whoever is in charge of renting the property out).... more
