Is Northern Virginia Low Inventory Causing Desperation among Buyers-"Would you cut me a deal if they decided to work directly with you and dump my buyer agent"

Healthy real estate market in Northern Virginia area is facing a huge issue with low inventory. Blessed with great referrals I do have decent number of listings in the market that end up getting multiple offers.  While I am very clear with my sellers that I don't represent DUAL agency.

However with increasing low inventory and desperation to buy a home with low interest rate the buyers are willing to go any route to get the home.

On several of occasion I have received a call or at my open house  prospect buyers asking me "SELLER & I (Realtor ®) would cut him a deal if they decided to work me us directly and dump their buyer agent"

Well more than getting upset or irritated I wonder "How disloyal can these buyers be?" OR "Is it lack or education the buyer agent has provided to the buyers on how buying and selling work?" OR "Is it we are so desperate that we are willing to do anything to purchase a home?"

While these questions remain unanswered for me but I am sure there are enough buyers who can get back pass without understanding what DUAL agency or UNREPRESENTED BUYER agency means when they are making a huge purchase as their home.

However I stands true when I am speaking to any prospects at the open house & any direct inquiries I don't like double dipping in to a transaction and it is in the best interest of the buyers to find their own representation.

Don't get caught up in the mad race to buy a home....get your own representation and let the professional help you!
