I am curious about why you seem so opposed to using a buyer's agent. Buyer Agency is a powerful tool in protecting your interests while negotiating a Real Estate transaction. A Buyer's Agent is familiar with and can protect your rights; can advise you not only on the sales prices of comparable homes, but how that data fits into the current market. They can also help you to understand all the inspections you have a right to ask for; and advise you about which repairs are required by contract and which are negotiable. A buyer's agent can follow up with your lender and settlement agent to ensure the contract deadlines are being met and protect your interests. The list of benefits a good buyerâ€™s agent will bring to you is endless.
I regularly run interesting reports on home sales through the MRIS database available to Realtors, and find that buyers who are represented in buyer's agency tend to pay significantly less on average than non-represented or "disclosed dual agency" transactions. I look at the settled price vs. list price at the time of contract, and subtract seller subsidies; and find represented buyers are more likely to pay less than 97% of the listed price than unrepresented or "dual agency" buyers. You may be short changing your savings by going it alone â€“ I look at large samples, and average the results, each transaction is unique in its own situation. Statistically, the date shows a tremendous benefit to Buyer Representation.
My advice to you would be to find a buyer's agent that you can trust to work with you in achieving your real estate goals and to go into a transaction fully represented. If you are interested in talking and hearing more about the benefits of being represented by a Realtor, I am happy to meet with you and talk about it. Please feel free to give me a call (703)304-0548 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will set up a time to meet you and discuss your goals.
