So I agree that there would be no reason as a buyer to have a realtor. And I just signed the closing papers on Thursday.
I think you either mis-typed or mis-understand. As a buyer you should have an agent, but you are typically not required to pay any fees to said realtor (make sure this is so in any contract you sign). Their commission comes from the selling agency at closing.
I'm not quoting idiots who promote unsafe recovery strap techniques anymore. :miff:
