Can a Realtor represent themselves as a buyer?
If a real estate agent is representing themselves as Buyer’s Agent in the purchase of a property and credits/rebates their commission to themselves.
The rebate is regarded as a reduction in the purchase price of the home and is not taxable income to the buyer.
Can I make an offer on a house without an agent?
If you work without an agent, you can only buy for-sale-by-owner (FSBO) homes: False. You can make an offer on any home that you could if you were represented by an agent.
Can I get a real estate license to sell my own home?
You do not need to have a license to sell your own house. Selling a home is more than taking a few calls for showings and pushing some documents around. A good agent will negotiate the deal and get you the price on the terms you’re looking for.
Why do I need a Buyers Agent?
Your buyer’s agent would be able to negotiate prices for you, make sure that the property is inspected before you buy it and ensure that you have any representation you need. They’re able to show you houses that are for sale by the owner, and not just houses being marketed by real estate agents.
