Texas Real Estate Bible Podcast
About This Show
This podcast, hosted by Kevin Scott and Houston agents Karen Scott and Gil McCollin, confront why real estate agents are ranked somewhere between used car salesman and prostitute when it comes to honesty and trustworthiness.
We explore the reasons behind this phenomenon and in the process construct the 10 Commandments for real estate agents. In the process, we are sharing with the world our business religion in the hopes of finding like-minded agents and clients as an audience.

014 - Buyer Commandment 2: Thou Shalt Use An Agent Even If Thou Art Buying A New Build Home (Part 1 of 2)
< 1 day ago
It's common knowledge that if you're going to buy an existing home, you are more than likely going to need an agent. What isn't as common knowledge is that agents are absolutely essential when buying a new home from a home builder too! Think about it - everything the builder does and says is intended for a single purpose: to get the most money out of you as possible. When you deal directly with the builder, and worse yet, you use the builder's inspector, lender, title company, etc, there is literally nobody in the transaction who is looking out for your best interests. Enter your real estate agent. A properly trained and experienced agent will be your advocate throughout the entire process, and will provide you with the information the builder doesn't want you to know. For instance, how much the house is actually worth based on comparable properties in the area. Buying a house that isn't even built yet? Your agent can provide even more value! Best of all, the services of your agent are paid for by the builder - AT NO COST TO YOU! Listen to the episode to learn all the details. In the interest of limiting the length of our episodes, this is Part 1 of 2 for this Commandment.
