Exciting news from The Walk-Through!!!!
"Joseph and Avi Fox launched BuySide Realty today for residents of California, Florida and Illinois, where 22 percent of all homes are sold. It has the potential to be one more blow against the fixed-commission system so profitable to real estate agents."
"The new company assumes that buyers find their houses on the Web — or anywhere, for that matter, except directly from an agent. (Statistics from the National Association of Realtors say about two-thirds of buyers find their own home without an agent, though most use an agent to complete the deal.)"
"So BuySide is focused on changing the role of the buyer’s agent."
