Interview, find one that wants to work representing you and knows the difference between a sales pitch and the truth.
Good hunting, Dunes .......... I'm sure you will get a lot of friendly (fee-driven?) referrals also..I intend to refer you to several different NY agents once I get the Fee worked out... ; ) Will work for Thumbs Up.......................
You definiltey want to have an other agent represent you. Generally the asset manager's do not want to see the listing agent bring in offers. They want some seperation between the listing agent and the buyer so their is no conflict of interest.
Your own real estate agent will be able to handle the offer on a REO. You should be motivated to buy now when the rates are low, the prices are down, and the inventory is plentiful. If you are interested in buying today there are many REOs available right now. Please call me, Bob, at VIP Real Estate, Inc. 718-967-2600 x312.
