What is a Buyer's Agent?

Buyer's Agent Duties

There are a multitude of reasons why you should absolutely work with a Buyer's Agent.  A Buyer's Agent is the best tool you have when getting ready to purchase a home.  From helping to find a lender with the best rates possible, helping you to find the perfect property that fits your unique housing criteria, setting up closing, to making sure appropriate documents make it to the Listing Agent and the attorney in a timely manner, their only responsibility is to ensure that you get the best deal possible on the home of your dreams.  We walk you through the home-buying process, making sure that you feel comfortable with the contracts, and making sure that you are educated every step of the way.


Benefits of Using a Buyer's Agent

  • Find the right property. After determining what clients are looking for and what they can afford, the agent will schedule appointments to tour homes that fit the bill. The agent can also explain the ins and outs of various properties and neighborhoods to help buyers decide which home is right for them by explaining the pros and cons of various options.
  • Negotiate the offer. The buyer's agent will work with clients to decide on an appropriate price to offer and present it to the seller's agent. They will then negotiate on your behalf and write up the contracts for you. This is where the agent's experience in negotiating deals can save you money and help you avoid pitfalls like a fixer-upper that's more trouble than it's worth.
  • Recommend other professionals. A buyer's agent should also be able to refer you to reliable mortgage brokers, real estate attorneys, home inspectors, movers, and more. This can also help expedite each step of the process and move you to a successful sale all the faster.
  • Help overcome setbacks. If the home inspector's report or appraisal brings new issues to light, a buyer's agent can advise you on how to proceed, and then act as a buffer between you and the sellers or their agent. If negotiations become heated or hostile, it's extremely helpful to have an experienced professional keeping calm and offering productive solutions.

What Does a Buyer's Agent Cost?

Nothing, $0, Nada, Zip, Zilch, get the point?  The best thing about working with a Buyer's Agent is that you get representation for FREE in most cases!  The Buyer's Agent is going to seek their compensation from the Seller, therefore the Seller pays the Buyer's Agent's commission!
