Using just one OBX Realtor will save you time for enjoying the Outer Banks and will likely make a difference in the service you receive. Oftentimes Outer Banks buyers will call an agency about a property the OBX Realtor has listed and then call another when they see another property they find interesting. When you call different listing agents about their property, more often than not you will be asked many of the same questions by every Realtor you call. Also, most Realtors who have made a career of selling Outer Banks real estate now have CallerID. When you contact them about a property it is likely you will receive additional follow up calls. Even if you don’t take these calls they take up your time.
Contacting just listing agents eliminates your ability to receive representation because they automatically represent the seller. Every property on the Outer Banks has good features and bad features. Of course listing agents have to tell you about all defects with the property but they would be doing their seller a disservice if they told a buyer how some of the property features are less desirable. A smart buyer will want someone who is very familiar with the area to point out all the pros and cons of each property so they can make an educated buying decision. A listing agent who represents the seller can not do this. See our buyer FAQs for more information on this.
