Why Buyers Need Their Own Representation

  • It's FREE: You heard me right, its free!  Having a buyer agent to work exclusively for you won't cost you a thing.  Commissions are paid by the seller, not the buyer.

  • Custom Listings:  A buyers agent can find you listings and send them to you.  Your agent knows exactly what you are looking for in a home and pre-screen properties for you, saving you the time and hassle.

  • Professional Negotiation:  A buyer agent will use their negotiating skills to get you the home you want at the best cost and terms.  They have extensive knowledge about the real estate market and can perform a comparative market analysis to make sure you don't pay too much for your home.

  • Confidentiality: The listing agent works for the seller!!  Anything you share about yourself or finances with listing agents you call about properties could be used against when you make an offer on a house.  A buyer agent protects your best interest and keeps your information confidential.  They can show you any and every home you like so you never have to contact the listing agents.

  • Handling paperwork: Writing a contract is a lot of work.  Your buyers agent with write your contract and paperwork for you, organize it and make sure you have copies of everything you need! 

  • Support:  Buying a home is one of the biggest purchases of your life.  It can also be confusing, and stressful.  A buyer agent will not only be able to explain the entire process to you, they are there to ease your stress and make it as smooth of a transaction as possible.  You will feel more confident knowing you are in good hands.
