Believe it or not, the "finding the house" part is actually the easiest part of the deal. Itâ€™s the "what to do next" part that you and your wife can use help with.
As an agent, she might consider offering another agent or broker a 75% referral split, so she can keep 25% in her pocket. Her broker would have to approve it of course, but this would be a great opportunity to shadow another agent to get some invaluable experience. In exchange for the 25% she keeps, she could agree to do more of the groundwork than a typical client.
Now, if the "finding the house" part seems more difficult than you thought it would be... youâ€™re not alone. The most successful, seasoned agents are having a challenge finding good inventory these days because the government and banks have been working together to artificially limit supply. Word is, this problem should be easing over the next few months, but yep, its slim pickins these days.
