Asked by Teecee, Fountain, CO • Thu Apr 26, 2012
I am buying a home in the Fountain area.
About 3 weeks ago, I went to an open house for a foreclosed home. The Realtor/agent (I don't know which she was) who showed the house was very polite--but things soon changed. She asked if I was working with a specific agent and when I replied, "No", she offered to give me the MLS printouts for some other homes in my price range--then she pushily asked me to sign a Buyer's Agreement in order to give them to me. I was shocked.
First off, I completely understand the purpose of a buyer's agreement--and I agree with them. I enjoy the protection it gives me as a buyer and know that it usually means the agent will go out of their way to take care of me. But signing a BA with someone I don't know, someone for whom I didn't even get a referral from someone I trust? I was actually offended that she'd ask after only talking to me for 5 minutes.
Agents/Realtors: do you ask buyer's to sign BA's within 10 minutes of meeting?
