A Buyer's Agent, Why You Should Have One:
The Realtor selling a property is called the Listing Agent. By law this Realtor represents the seller and must therefore work in the seller's interest at all times.
As a buyer, to have your interests represented, you should have a Realtor working for you, a Buyer's Agent.
Realtors and their brokerages are paid for their work by funds generated by a completed sales transaction. The money is usually paid from the seller's side of the transaction. There is usually no direct Realtor fee paid by the buyer. This means that it costs you the same to purchase a property whether you use a Realtor or not. It is in your best interest to have a Realtor represent you.
As Your Buyer's Agent I Will:
- Work in your best interest at all times.
- Analyze the strengths and weaknesses of different properties.
- Calculate a Current Market Analysis (CMA) on a property and suggest a reasonable offering range.
- Undertake a due level of diligence and discovery to give you information to make an informed decision on the property you wish to purchase.
- Develop a negotiating strategy that will help you acquire the property at the lowest price and the best terms possible.
- Complete a contract of purchase and sale that contains the protective clauses for a buyer.
Provide options and guidance throughout the process.
