Its all very simple, paying money to buy time. That is the correct statement to describe paying commission to agents.
I hire a maid to do my house work and cook for me. It costs me money every month, why don't I do all the cooking and house work myself? Time is precious and we don't live a few hundred years, why would I want to waste my time doing all those stuff when I can spend my time with my family?
Another analogy would be buying cars. Why not you buy cars straight from Japan to save all the commissions given to the company and salesman? It is highly achievable for an individual to import their own cars into singapore, you just have to learn the trade. But why is no one doing that or I mean so few people doing that? The answer here is time, it is time consuming and a hassle to do all these which you will rather prefer paying someone to do the job.
The term here is you pay the agent to buy their time so that they work for you. Why would you want to spend all those time wasted just to save money. Yes, you can argue you wife is working, your children is studying and you go to the course 8 - 5pm. Why don't you go to work then? If you are on leave to take all those classes, its pathetic! The purpose of your annual leave is for you to rest/attend to important events, why do you want to waste your time on all those classes when you can have a rest from your hectic work everyday.
Indeed there are black sheeps in property agents, but it is the same in every trade. The honest and hardworking ones, deserve your commission as they work hard for it. It is just like while you work hard for your boss and the boss don't want to pay you because he thinks that u are not worth the salary.
In the first place why there are property agents, they are job created by buyers and sellers themselves. In this world today, nobody will want to do everything themselves. Hence people starts to look for property agents, car salesman, etc to buy their time so that they can live a more comfortable life.
Buying and Selling a property is a tedious process, ensuring a smooth transaction is as important as getting a good price for the unit.
Buyers want to buy low, Sellers want to sell high, that is where my job comes in, to match prices, a price where both parties find it reasonable. Leave the job to the professional whom specialise in this industry.
