Most buyers begin their home search online. When they see a home they like, they reach out to the listing agent for the property. Many buyers don’t understand there could be a potential pitfall to that action since the listing agent has a signed contract with the seller to work on their behalf to get the highest and best offer for their property.  The preferred course of action would be for you, the buyer, to have your own representation with an agent who has your best interest in mind.  And most times, having a buyer’s agent doesn’t cost you anything!
