Do people do that or is improper?
I think its improper, generally.
Not IMO. Unless you have a pre-existing relationship with one of them.
Most people in the realty business are scumbags. It's a good way to hold their feet to the fire and keep them motivated.
when i was looking, i didn't even feel the need to have a selling agent, i just found what i needed on the mls and corresponded directly with the listing agent when interested, when the listing agent doesn't need to split his commision with anyone, you, the homebuyer win
it is a little bit more work though, but worth it, imo
how dare you to even consider doing this
i wish i was using an agent now. we're dealing directly with the buyer. what a pain in the ass
Agents are people who have failed with previous career.
calm down, dave
both agents will have the same resources. If one isn't satisfactory, ditch him or her and get another one. Plus, you will probably not find many realtors willing to work with you. And you are putting yourself at financial risk if you look at the same house with both realtors.
Not cool, but if you somehow game the system, I guess you win, huh?
Lol. Maybe they are in the KU area.
Fuck me in the ass.
I was a shitty realtor and never would have worked with someone who wasn't working with me exclusively.
Any decent realtor won't work with a shithead. You'll only get chumps.
Food for thought
You don't owe anybody anything, just make sure if you deal directly with the listing agent of a certain house negotiate the closing cost.
Generally closing costs are 6% which is then split between the listing agent and the realtor you're working with, if you deal directly with the listing agent he/she will get the full commision so you can negotiate down to as low as 4.5%.
Oh and it is a buyer's market right now so don't be shy about offering as much as 10% of the seller's asking price.
