Pick Your Real Estate Agents Wisely
There is the misconception that the Real estate agent should be in control of the home buying transaction to the extent that they handle it all for you. Sometimes they are dual agent and also want to pick YOUR home inspector out for you... What a way to ensure they make a sale and get thier money. Pretty crooked if you ask me.
Of course this is under the guise of..."we are a full service agency..." "Oh let me handle that... you have enough to worry about...."
And “handle it" they will. Often suggesting you use an Inspector that is on a preferred vendor list (meaning they paid a bribe to the real estate agent or office)
They will often direct the Inspector privately: "don’t kill the deal"
These types of agents are to be avoided like the plague-
