Why, oh, why should you use a buyers agent?

First, they don’t cost you anything and they work for YOU and only YOU! They help to negotiate the best price and terms for the purchase of your home. Many items you may not know about or are unfamiliar with can help you immensely in getting the best deal on your new home with only your best interest in mind.

If you use the sellers agent to negotiate your contract you should be aware you may not be fully represented.  You should have your own exclusive agency contract with your own agent in order to protect yourself.

The sellers agent is hired to get the best deal for the seller, not you. So how are you fairly represented by them?

Protect yourself and get your own agent!

Secondly, your buyers agents will not only negotiate the best contract possible they are responsible for the following: Protecting your personal information, full disclosure on the property, showing you properties you are interested in, working for you by providing information and help connecting you with people you may need, such as; lenders, city information, inspectors, and home warranty companies.

On the other hand, as a buyer, you work exclusively with the agent but have the option to walk away if the agent is not doing their due diligence. Do not let any agent tell you otherwise.

Third, buying a house is one of the biggest investments of your life and it should be a fun and enjoyable time.
