I am happy to learn that you are doing what I plan on doing. That is I plan to get a brokers license (not a sales license, and yes i can qualify for a brokers license). Then with the license I want to buy and sell on my own for myself.
When a broker/ agent buys for his/her account, do you still get to be paid a commission, since you “represented” yourself in the transaction.
Assuming the seller has a broker, can you share the brokerage commission with sellers broker since you are “buyer’s broker” even though you are the buyer.
Besides listing on MLS, what other advantages do you find that there is to a RE licensee that invests in his own account ? What are the drawbacks in your own experience ?
Thanks for any info you can provide.
