Again and again the question of how many agents should work together usefully. The answer is quite simple: a. Because this one is perfectly adequate, since it has access to all up for sale properties. Here the broker and real estate system differs drastically from that in Germany. The article explains why:
Each broker has its own sell orders in the offer, which he marketed and is trying to sell. He acquired a buyer, he owns the entire commission: if no difference. In the US, however, it is generally the case that a broker can join by paying an annual surcharge of Association of Realtors. He follows a fairly strict code of ethics.
A Real Estate Agent is not a Realtor
By this accession and the swearing, the broker then called "Realtor". This he stands out from the "Real Estate Agent", ie the normal brokers. By joining, he will automatically receive access to the platform offer "Multiple Listing Service" (MLS).
This offer platform is a hugely complex system that manages all offers of a region in a database and delivers the information to search engines and other websites. Each broker who receives a sales order from a customer wants, bring this course for the customer and also from self-interest rather quickly to a conclusion. Here, the difference shows the procedure in Germany: He presents the offer to the database and provides a portion of the commission - half usually - to be supplied to the broker who brings a buyer. As a broker rather a property sold in less time for half of the commission, as you have for an indefinite period in its existence, the Grßteil the broker decide to adjust their offerings to the database.
Thus, each broker that owns the MLS system, always view the whole inventory and drive automated analyzes for its clients. He also maintains a complete overview of the market.
An overview of the market versus dozens of websites
Therefore, it is also advisable to use the automated analysis of the real estate system and not to rely on the information from dozens of sites. These are partially incorrect or not up to date. Such users often get time behind. In today's market and with the mass of interested parties, it is the first important step to reach his dream home to be up to date. With the reduced inventory, which currently is located in the market, speed can determine the success or imply an accepted offer or refused. It is therefore important to use the "mother" of all systems and Web sites, the so-called "MLS Client Portal".
The criteria for the evaluations shall provide the interested fixed initially. These can change at any time afterwards again. Everything done conveniently via e-mail on a self-made for the prospective website. If the evaluation once deposited, the system sends up to two times a day an e-mail with offers that are newly published and comply with the desired properties. Stored objects continue to be updated in a personal storage compartment, for example, at discounted price or if the house is made or sold by the market. So can also be easily discuss objects because both access the same data source to the dedicated broker. Above all, the customer will receive all information and details that has deposited in the system of selling brokers, while other websites for the most part show only an extract of the data. Thus, the prospective customer is looking like a broker and has thereby access to the same information.
To merge sellers and buyers, all work together in America and are thus in a position to find a property or sell much faster. The network in Lee County belong to thousands of active brokers who in turn have potential buyers on your search list. It cavort virtually hundreds of thousands of buyers and sellers in the MLS system. Nevertheless: Just when you only need a broker, he should be the one. Finally, he accompanied people in one of the biggest decisions of your life.
