I also agree that engaging 2 agents or more for your current property sales will erode the value of ur property; but only to a certain extent from my point of view. Y? Cos u r ultimately the owner and have the final say. From what price to advertise and what is ur final price etc. U shld be in control. Can u say BM is "cheap" bcos they have many sales person selling the same car? For me, my personal experience from my previous condo sales, was that I used a few agents to widen my "net". Told them absolutely what is my price and what price to advertise etc. Remember, u r the boss and u shld have absolute control over EVERYTHING! 1st question, NO! No agent can represent both sides in a transaction (buyer/seller or landlord/tenant). If u have proof, pls feel free to report it to CEA n they will take action accordingly. Yes u can DIY by all means cos nobody say u must use agent when buying or selling. Assuming u r buying a 500K HDB, 1% commission is 5K. If u think u wanna save that 5K for other things, u r entitled to. Or if u think that a 3mths job is worth 5K, and have someone to assist u along the way, use an agent. Just like nobody say u must go workshop to service the car. If u know how to do it, then by all means go ahead. If not go to a workshop and have someone doing the "dirty" job for u.. Hehe End of the day, not all agents r good, but also not all r bad. Just like, not all BM r bad, but also not all r good All the best and hope u can achieve your "Dream" soon!
