Thanks for your replies to my threads. I am looking for property in zip 21227, 21228 and open to other good neighborhoods in Maryland.

Where/how do I find a good buyers agent to handle regular/REO transaction?


What are the reasonable terms agree with agent?


Thanks for sharing.

As far as "terms" go, a buyer's agent should not cost you anything. Ask whatever agent you chose what their cancellation policy is as most good agents will only work with a buyer agency agreement. Asking for agent recommendations is a good idea but also its nice to go to Open Houses in the areas you're interested in. Its a great way to interview agents; see if they're knowledgeable about those areas and if your personalities click or not. Best wishes.

Thanks for your replies. I tried to talk with buyer agents. There are some says,


"I do have a fee that is $410 and that would be all that you are responsible for monetarily to me out of your pocket. This fee helps cover my overhead and office costs ."

It looks weird. Is it a buyer agent practice? How do I handle this?

Thanks for sharing.

A buyer's agent should not charge you any fees: he or she will get part of the commission (different % depending on their contract with the agency to chose associate with)
