Why You Need A Buyers Agent

A Buyer’s Agent represents YOU in the real estate transaction. The fee is built into the sales price, so – at NO extra cost -you have a professional to look out for your interests and to have your back!

What exactly does a Buyer’s Agent do for you? Here are just a few examples:

✦Assist in getting you pre-approved for a mortgage; introduction to a mortgage broker
✦Preparing a detailed list of all available homes that meet your unique criteria
✦Contacting listing agents of properties you want more information about and setting showing appointments
✦Meeting you at properties you select to see and discuss their merits/drawbacks
✦Acquiring additional information on homes that interest you
✦Providing current research on homes that are comparable to the home you choose to determine an offer price
✦Working with you to determine the price and terms for your offer – presenting your offer to the listing agent
✦Negotiating on your behalf to reach a price and terms that work for you and are acceptable to the seller
✦Arranging for an inspection and meeting with the inspector
✦Explaining the inspector’s findings to you and arranging for repair estimates and additional inspections if needed (by engineers, pest control professionals, general contractors, roofers, etc.)
✦Negotiating with the listing agent/seller for repair or other credits when warranted and appropriate
✦Meeting with an appraiser and a surveyor when needed
✦Coordinating required paperwork between the buyer and seller, buyer and mortgage company, buyer and title company, and so on, to help the transaction close
