So, you’ve heard of buyer’s agents, seller’s agents, listing agents, and so on. You’re a buyer, so what is a buyer’s agent?
Buyer’s agents assist home buyers every step of the way; they can also save you tons of time and money on the road to home ownership. Buyer’s agents are legally bound to help buyers, whereas listing agents—the agent representing the home listing—have certain responsibility to the home seller. It’s in a buyer’s best interest to get an agent who is there to help them. Otherwise, who will be looking out for your interests?
The buyers agent will help you find the right property, negotiate the offer, recommend other professionals like movers, mortgage lenders, home inspectors and more. They can also help you with setbacks like when negotiations get tough or inspections show issues.
When you are ready to purchase a home, hire a Realtor ® you can trust, who will walk you through the process, give you their full attention and represent you.
The good news? Home buyers don’t need to worry about the expense of hiring a buyer’s agent. Why? Because the seller pays the commission for both the seller’s agent and the buyer’s agent.
