Home buyers and sellers should be comfortable enough with their Realtor® that open discussions are always an option.
If one of your "friends" tells you "how it should be done" or "how" their agent would be handling the transaction, please talk to you own agent. Tell them about the conversation.
And if it is a good idea, your agent may incorporate it.
But if it's meddling or something truth impaired, your agent needs to be aware.
When listing a home, the sellers and the Realtor® become partners, making sure the client gets the very best outcome.
Just because someone lives in a house does not make them an expert to give advice on selling or buying one.
Yet many people when they have their home on the market or are buying a home will listen to neighbors, family, friends, co workers and others .
These busybodies are known for trying to help with situations in which they're not educated, welcome or needed.
Just want to remind you to talk, really talk, to your agent.
Realtors® have this conversation prior to signing a listing or buying agreement.
