What You Say Can (and Will) Be Used Against You!

  When buying a home in Charlotte NC, anything you say or reveal to the listing agent of a home for sale in Charlotte NC can and will be used against you.

  The listing agent of a home for sale in Charlotte NC works for the sellers.  It’s the listing agent’s job and DUTY to promote the seller’s interests and that includes telling the seller about any confidential info about a buyer. 

  Some facts about potential home buyers are relevant and should be disclosed (ability to qualify for a loan, whether buyer has a house to sell) since they relate to a buyer’s ability to actually buy real estate in Charlotte NC. Potential buyer doesn’t always equal ready/willing/able buyer.

  Before talking to the listing agent of any real estate in Charlotte NC, keep in mind that anything that listing agent learns about you WILL be disclosed to the seller.  This goes for new construction as well – those friendly sales reps at the model home work for the seller NOT you the buyer.  Before you go fawning over the kitchen and proclaim how perfect the layout is for you, stop!!!! 

  Until you hire a buyer’s agent to represent you in buying real estate in Charlotte NC, keep anything and everything you wouldn’t want a seller to know to YOURSELF.  Once you’ve hired a buyer’s agent, that Charlotte NC agent is on your team, working to promote your best interests and is on your side when evaluating available real estate in Charlotte NC.

  When buying a home in Charlotte NC, you have the right to representation from a buyer’s agent.  If you choose to give up that right, just remember that anything you say can and will be used against you to the seller’s advantage.
