Whether you are a buyer or seller of Montreal property, you might need to hire the services of a realtor. When you hire a relator for your Montreal property then it is not only business bit a relationship that you will develop with him. If you are a buyer then you will be driving around with him to have a look at the various Montreal properties.
You should remember that when a realtor has the added incentive of earning more commission to sell a property then he will do anything to make you buy the house and vice versa. They may mislead you that a particular property is the best (though actually it might not be good) because he gets more commission from it.
Studies show that Montreal properties that offer more commission to buyer agents tend to sell off faster than other deals. And the other glitch is the National Association of Realtors in Montreal doesn’t require the brokers to disclose the commission amount that they will take.
However there are a few ways in which you cannot be manipulated by the Montreal relator. Maybe you can try to find a Montreal property on your home without the assistance of a real estate agent. You can do research on the internet such as real estate property sites where the Montreal properties are listed for free.
In case you decide to go with a real estate realtor then make them sign a contract in writing where they will not change the percentage of commission than mentioned in the agreement. In the agreement include a point that any bonus paid by the seller will be applied to the closing costs. You can also make the agent agree to a particular monetary amount rather than a percentage. This way there will be no incentive for the agent to mislead you in terms of property as he will be making the same amount on any transaction.
