Why a Buyer’s Agency Agreement Matters

Whether you are a first time home buyer, or a veteran home buyer, working with a buyer’s agent is always important. Buyer’s agents assist home buyers every step of the way. They are licensed professionals that specialize in searching, evaluating, and negotiating the purchase of property on behalf of the buyer.

Finding the right buyer’s agent to work with you can help make your home purchase smooth, and easy. Here are some reasons why:

  1. In this market, quality homes are moving quickly. A dedicated buyers agent will be able to get you into those homes more quickly so you don’t lose out on a house.
  2. Having a buyer’s agent gives you a direct contact, so you don’t have to keep hitting “contact agent” online.
  3. A buyer’s agent can provide advice and counsel a buyer with unrestricted assistance. As you work with your buyer’s agent, they’ll get to know your preferences and be a sounding board to advise you on the market as well as your home purchase.
  4. There is no additional cost to you. A buyer’s agent can save you money by being able to negotiate with the seller and selling agent to work toward obtaining the lowest price and best terms.
  5. Buyers agents can provide you with recommendations. They have lists of quality professional to share including attorneys, contractors, lenders, inspectors.
  6. The buyer’s agency agreement clearly lays out the roles and responsibilities.
  7. The buyer’s agent will guide you through every step of the home buying process – from prequalification to closing on your house.

Remember – a home purchase is a significant and expensive transaction with long-term financial implications. Buying a home wisely, at the right price and terms, can provide a lifetime of benefits and enjoyment! Finding the right buyer’s agent can set you off in the right direction.
