(Still) More Evidence of Tight Supply

“Buyer’s agent will pay a 15% referral fee to anyone who gives an address for a potential listing that leads to a sale.”

–email pitch (April 2, 2013)

How tight is housing supply in the Twin Cities at the moment?

Tight enough that at least one Buyer’s agent (above) is resorting to offering a slice of their commission to turn up about-to-be-listed homes (what Realtors call “pre-list’s”).

Will it catch on?

I imagine if it works for this agent, there will be some copycats . . .
