Mortgage rates for 30-year loans have broken through record lows three times in as many months, making borrowing costs favorable for prospective buyers who are looking to get off the fence and purchase.  Meanwhile, home prices continue to rise, even as uncertainty around the pandemic persists.

Do I have to use the agent who shows me the home?

Many buyers wonder if the listing agent of a home they are interested in will show the home to them. The answer is "yes", as the listing agent is obligated to show his or her client’s home. A listing agent is hired by the seller to work 100% for the seller’s best interests.  

Additionally some buyers wonder if they can save some money by going directly to that seller's agent to buy the home.

While it may save time, the buyer will NOT save money on that specific purchase transaction.
