HELP. Helping Buyers in another market

Can I help a buyer in another city in Texas like Dallas? She is approved for a home loan. She has a list of homes in the area she wants to see also I can search I am not part of that MLS but wondering If I can show her the homes? Can I use my Supra key to unlock doors in another city like Dallas I am part of Houston HAR MLS. How does the pay work too is it the same? send contract to my broker for a CDA and give to the title co in Dallas?

Sadly your Supra only works in the mls you subscribe to. You can sell anywhere in Texas but the mls makes its extra hard. You have to reach out to the listing agent. Explain you are an out of town realtor and either get her to meet you to open it up or ask if there is a lock box with a code you can get. Good luck it takes a lot of communication with the listing agent. Explain what a great buyer you have and that they must purchase immediately. A good realtor will get you into the home.

Yes, you can help your client anywhere In Texas, but You need to check to see if your Supra will work in the city you will be selling in. If not, you might consider referring the sale out to a local agent who can help your client better than you can. I would rather refer my client to a local person who knows the area, knows local lenders and knows a good title company. They will also be able to refer venders for the client for their inspections, any repairs that may need to be done, and any other issues that may need to be completed prior to closing.
If you decide to help them yourself, make sure to do your due diligence to ensure that you are putting your client into a great area and not just putting them in a house in another city where they might not be happy. Good luck!!

You may also want to talk with your broker about joining the Dallas MLS even for a short time to be able to function in that market.

You have a broker simply to address questions like this. If your broker does not help you and train you, go to another broker.

Yes, you can help a client anywhere in the state of Texas. You may not want to travel back and forth because it is time consuming. I would suggest you send the buyer to work with a realtor in that area. You can also get advice from your broker. Your broker should be able to help you with these type of questions.

Personally...the best way to help your buyers is by referring them to a trusted agent in the area! Here's why I say that.... before becoming an agent, I worked with a friend-agent in an area outside of her primary area. She did not know the neighborhoods well enough and after buying and living there for 4 years we learned a lot that we know another more knowledgeable agent would have informed us about. Refer it, collect a referral fee, and maintain contact with both your friend and the agent. You will expand your network and send the message that being a Realtor is more than just opening a door!
