What about the agents fees and charges?
Agents fees are generally not regulated and are negotiable. Any successful investor will tell you that if you choose the right agent they are worth far more than the fees they charge. Many wealthy property investors owe their success to their choice of professional real estate agent and they did not gain that agent’s loyalty by cutting fees. Never choose an agent on the fee structure alone. The final result is where the money is made not through negotiating lower fees.
