Perhaps time to quit your IT job and get in on the easy door opener game?
There will be a huge variance in required time that a buyers agent spends to call other agents, verify stuff, call you, drive around to open up houses, prepares offers, picks up paperwork, makes sure all the t's are crossed and so on.
I bought an investment property last year, and the buyers agent was also the sellers agent. She showed me one house, it was nice, put in offer, got it. Was she grossly overpaid? In that instance, yes.
This year I am looking into buying a house as a primary residence. My buying agent has been working with me for probably, well, 3 months. Contacting selling agents, showing houses, preparing offers, etc etc. All without a single cent compensation, and perhaps, it will stay like that if nothing suitable pops up. Grossly underpaid? Sure.
