I saw a Facebook post talking about a common problem with real estate agents — buyer disloyalty. That got me wondering, why aren’t we moving towards agents getting paid by the hour? It would solve so many problems.
The way that real estate agents are getting paid leads to a lot of issues, one of which is the problem of client disloyalty. A few others — desperation, lack of differentiation, not being paid like a real professional, lack of alignment in the interests of the client and the agent, etc. I thought I would muse on this as I’ve been thinking and talking about it for years.
