HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT REAL ESTATE BROKER
A broker is not a broker is not a broker. There are sales agents with very limited experience, there are associate brokers working for other brokers and then there are Principal Brokers and real estate lawyers holding a real estate license. There is no fee for NYC home buyers and, for renters, the broker fee does not vary depending on the agent’s experience. So when dealing with a real estate representative, demand the best.

EXCLUSIVE BUYER’S and RENTER’S BROKERS
The most common misconception amongst NYC real estate buyers is that “your” agent is looking out for your best interest. This could not be further from the truth. The listing agent actually works for the Owner and this does not change simply because you also become his or her client. The Owner’s broker can represent both the Owner and the Buyer or the Renter, a situation called, Dual Agency, but consumer advocates do not recommend such relationships as involving inherent conflict of interest issues. When you buy a NYC loft, townhouse or any other condo, you do not pay broker commission but if you contact the Seller’s broker directly, you do not get to have your own broker. When you rent, typically there is no difference in the amount of the broker commission whether you deal with the Landlord’s agent directly or through another broker. Most big name real estate companies do not allow their agents to negotiate their fees since a part of that fee goes to the house. So whether renting or buying NYC real estate, you might as well find the right broker who will make sure your interests are properly represented in the real estate transaction.

OHM specializes in finding unique NYC lofts and other apartments for sale and for rent. Our mission is to find the best NYC lofts townhouses or other NYC apartments for our clients, sometimes even before they are listed so that you are the only buyer or renter making an offer.
ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE in REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS
