It’s important that you choose an agent who is there for you. Your agent should be actively finding you potential homes, keeping you informed of the entire process, negotiating furiously on your behalf, and answering all of your questions with competence and speed.
First, find an agent who represents you and not the seller. This is beneficial during the negotiation process. If you are working with a buyer’s agent, he or she is required not to tell the seller of your top choice. In addition, he or she is also focused on getting you the lowest asking price.
Also, when you use a buyer’s agent, you will see more properties. Not only are they plugged into their Multiple Listing Service, but they are also actively finding homes that are listed as FSBO, or homes that sellers are thinking about listing.
A Buyer’s agent is also very valuable when purchasing a new home through a Builder. You need someone on your side who is there to find you the best deal and to help catch the pitfalls of the Builder’s sales contract.
Since Sellers and Builders customarily pay the Buyer’s Agent fees, there is no cost to you to use a professional Buyer’s Agent!
