How Unscrupulous Real Estate Agents Exploit Seniors

This segment elaborates on ways that seniors can be taken advantage of by unscrupulous real estate agents. Rebecca Bomann, CEO and founder of SASH Services, joins Suzanne to discuss this topic. Rebecca has a lot of respect for her fellow agents, and there are a lot of really good real estate professionals in this industry. But like any industry, there are a few who are incompetent, insensitive, unscrupulous, or don’t know how to address the special needs of senior home owners. Because they come in as a professional, with their license and business card, sometimes seniors don’t think they need to be vetted and assume everything they do is above board. Unfortunately this isn’t always true. Rebecca describes a few ways real estate agents can take advantage of a senior or be harmful to them in the sale of their home. Also, she provides advice for choosing a good agent, to interview multiple agents and make them earn your trust, and that a good broker explains everything you’re signing.
