Why Work with a Buyer’s Agent?

A Realtor® Representing You

If you’re planning on buying a home, you may have already done some shopping around on line on your own. Perhaps you’ve checked out a few open houses or called the number on a For Sale sign to schedule a private viewing of that property.

Yes, you can do all of that on your own, if you have the time and expertise, however there are an array of pitfalls that you could easily avoid by working with a buyer’s Realtor®.  Statistics prove that you’ll be more successful in finding your dream home at the right price working with your own personal Realtor®.  If you don’t have your own representation, you have to deal directly with the seller’s agent, who is legally obliged to work in the seller’s best interests – not yours.

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.  You wouldn’t hire your spouse’s attorney to represent you in your divorce.  The same applies to real estate.
