The following video presents pertinent information every buyer should know before looking at New York apartments for sale in Manhattan. While it is mentioned that you may hire a Buyer's Agent, buyers of New York apartments NEVER pay the commission, the sellers do, enjoy:
The majority of New York apartment owners hire New York Real Estate Agents known as Seller’s Agents to market and advertise their New York apartments. Seller's Agents, also known as listing agents, have a proven track record of selling properties for substantially higher prices than owners can get on their own.
The single biggest misconception buyers have when they shop for New York apartments for sale in Manhattanon their own, is they incorrectly assume they will avoid paying a commission.
What typically happens when buyers shop without a New York Real Estate Agent to represent them is they end up over-paying for their apartment, while still unknowingly paying the commission. The fact is the seller is the one who always pays 100% of the commission and there is never a reduction. This is because the Seller's Agent's job, which is dictated by law as part of the their contract with the owner, is to sell the apartment for the highest amount of money they possibly can get.
"The best analogyfora buyer who looks at New York apartments for sale without their own Real Estate Agent, would be the same as if you were getting divorced, didn't hire your own attorney, and trusted your soon to be ex-spouse's lawyer to look out for your best interests."
When using the New York Times, Internet, etc. to find New York apartments for sale in Manhattan, buyers are unknowingly viewing and responding to ads placed by the Seller's Agents and Brokers. The Seller's Agent/Broker is contractually obligated by New York Real Estate Law to work on the seller's behalf to obtain the highest price possible for their New York apartment. Since it does not cost buyers anything extra to use one, it makes no sense to shop for New York apartments for sale in Manhattan without the help of a Buyer's Real Estate Agent.
