In response to Heath, It does not appear in MLSPin because it is a Berkshire County listing, and the Berkshires has it's own MLS. No one is "scaring" anyone into using a buyer's agent. The seller has representation, so why should the buyer be at a disadvantage? Sellers' agents are required to act strictly in the best interest of the seller, while a buyer's agents work for the buyer. We are operating in accordance with laws and ethics, which all licensees must do. Additionally those in my office, and nearly all Berkshire offices, follow the Code of Ethics adhered to by members of the National Association of Realtors. Since you are also a Realtor, Heath, I am sure you do not discourage people from accessing representation.

Upon your first face to face meeting to discuss a specific property, Williamstown Buyer, you must, BY LAW, be presented with the Massachusetts Mandatory Licensee-Consumer Agency Disclosure form. It describes in detail what the seller's agent does, and what a buyer's agent does. That is because unless otherwise agreed upon, the person who shows you the property MUST work specifically in the interest of their client, the seller. Even if they act like your best buddy in the world and buy you lunch, THEY WORK FOR THE SELLER and their job is to get you to buy THAT property for the best price and terms for the SELLER. A buyer agent, however, works with you to find you the best possible property at price and terms which are as favorable to the buyer as possible. There is also the option to work with facilitators, who do not specifically represent either party. In MA, you have the option to work with or without representation. However, this property does have a seller's agent.

Is there a reason that you aren't contacting the park mamager, because they are usually the best source.

Hello Tom,
I am assuming, that the property that you are seeking the info about is your property, not presently listed with a Realtor, in which case, your best bet is contacting any local Real Estate office to conduct a comparative market analysis for you.
Unfortunately Willimstown is out of my area of the expertise and you will be best served by contacting an agent in Williamstown or any neighboring town.
I am happy to assist you at any time, should you be ever selling or buying South of Pittsfield, MA.

Best regards, Dagmar Kubes, Associated Broker, ABR Century 21 Franklin Street
