It probably would be nice if R.E. Investing was like ball players who can change uniforms just as long as they are paid. I doubt that the time will come in the U.S. that you need a license to invest your own money, but hopefully there will continue to be strong rules on people to purport to help you sell or buy your property. What an investor really need to consider when working with an agent is motivation. The agents motivation is to get paid for selling or helping to buy the Investor’s property If he is an Investor also, then his primary allegance is to himself and he naturatly will take the best ones for himself. An agent is not an investor’s friend and should be treated as such. Deal with him only if you have to and be careful that he does what you tell him.
