Why Do I Need A Buyer's Agent?
Most home buyers say, I don't need a Buyers Agent, I'll just use the Agent who listed the house.
Here is why you do need a Buyer's Agent.
Â RepresentationÂ -Â The Listing Agent has signed a contract to represent the seller.Â This means that Agent has a fiduciary responsibility to that seller.Â The sellers agent can share any information that you tell them with the seller!Â
If youÂ "hire" your own Agent by signing the Buyers Agency Agreement, you are employing a Personal Representative who by law must represent your best interests to the best of his/her ability.Â This extends throughout the transaction and includes duties such as locating and showing homes, writing up a sales contract and presenting to the seller's agent, negotiating on your behalf, scheduling all necessary inspections, troubleshooting, and going to the closing table with you.
All of these services are available at Â No Cost To You, as the Cooperating Realtor Firm is responsible for paying the Buyers Agent Fee.Â
Doesn't it just make sense to protect your interests and funds by hiring your Personal Representative to help you make one of the most important investment decisions of your life?
