The answer is simple: you want someone whose sole motivation is finding you the right home, not someone with a vested interest in the sale of a particular home. Below are three advantages to using a buyer's agent.
It’s Free. The seller pays our commission so it costs you nothing and yet, you get remarkable value. Among other things, we’ll help you narrow your search and identify properties that fit your criteria, gieve you advice on current market conditions which will help manage your expectations as well as craft competitive offers, and recommend mortgage brokers, local bankers, inspectors and attorneys to assist you in the various steps of the buying process.
Unbiased Advice. As a buyer's agent, we have no loyalty to any particular agency, thus we’ll work with any agency that has a listing in which you’re interested. A listing agent or seller's broker, on the other hand, may steer you toward his/her listings or listings within his/her company. In fact, they have a financial incentive to do so.
Expertise in the the Buying Process. Because we work almost exclusively with buyers, we’re experts at crafting and negotiating offers. Our knowledge of current market conditions, comparable sales and the process in general, will help us work with you to come up with an appropriate offer that will be seriously considered by a seller. We’ll also identify potential issues and pitfalls early in the buying process to avoid having the deal fall apart as the purchase moves toward closing.
Ultimately we’ll act as zealous advocates with your interest as our sole focus. Yeah, it sounds sort of 'sales-y' but it's also the truth.
