Buying into the fear that they must only use a buyer's agent and always avoid dual agency, transaction broker/agency or non representation possibilites.

Buying a home during the worst market ever, paying too much cause the cheertards convinced you that it was the best time to buy a home, etc etc etc......buying a home because of the $8K bribe.......I guess I could go on and on....

But the guy who just bought the home 2 doors down seems to have made tons of mistakes.......has managed to ruin the landscaping in only 4 months time, has managed to break the garage door and dent it up pretty bad, leaves the garbage cans on the drive 24/7......yeah, this guy was so ready to be a homeowner.......he has managed to devalue his own property.....

Disclosing too much information to their agent like the maximum "sell your fillings" qualification amount and not getting rid of an agent who is not listening to their needs/goals as buyers.
