Buyer’s Resources

Why Work with a Buyer’s Agent?

Finding and buying the ideal property can be a dream come true.  Over 80% of buyers start their research process on line through websites available to the general public.  So, it seems perfectly logical to call the agent listed online to get more information and schedule a showing for the home.  Doing this without a Buyer’s representation can put you at a significant disadvantage.  The agent listed on the advertisement is the agent who represents the seller, not you as the buyer.  The seller’s agent has a legal obligation to work on the seller’s behalf to get the highest price and best terms for the seller, not you as the buyer.  Any information you disclose can be used against you as the buyer during eventual negotiations.  Buying a home without a Realtor® to represent you would be like divorcing your spouse and relying on your spouse’s attorney to work in your best interest.

Buyer’s Agents Work for You~FREE of Charge

Many people are under a false impression that representing themselves will save them money on the purchase of their next home.  The truth is that only the seller pays the commissions.  Buyer’s agents are paid by the seller, not the buyer so their services are free to you.  Without a buyers’ agent the only parties that win are the seller and the seller’s agent.  Working with a buyer’s agent ensures that you are working with someone who represents you and negotiates on your behalf.

Realtors® Code of Ethics

Realtors® aren’t just agents.  They’re professional members of the National Association of Realtors® and subscribe to its strict code of ethics. This is the Realtor® difference for home buyers.  They can provide local information on utilities, zoning, schools, and more. They also have objective information about each property and use that data to help you determine if the property has what you need.  By understanding both your needs and search area, they can also point out neighborhoods you don’t know much about but that might suit your needs better than you’d thought.

Expanded Search Power

To have access to the most current and accurate listings, you will need to be working with a Realtor®.  Some people assume that all the information they find on real estate search engines like Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com are accurate, but in fact the only live and fully accurate search engine is the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), and that is only accessible to Realtors®.  Working with a Realtor® can help you find opportunities not listed on home search sites and can help you avoid out-of-date listings that might be showing up as available online but are no longer on the market.  You wouldn’t want to miss out on what could be your dream home because it never shows up in the public search engines.

Realtors® are Connected

Realtors® might not know everything, but they make it their mission to know just about everyone who can possibly help in the process of buying or selling a home.  Mortgage brokers, real estate attorneys, home inspectors, home stagers, interior designers—the list goes on—and they’re all in your Realtor’s network.  Use them!
