Some of the advantages our clients receive when buying a home:
Best of all, our buyer representation service is offered at NO COST TO YOU, the buyer. If youâ€™re not familiar with how real estate commissions are paid, let us explain. A seller hires a listing agent to list and sell their home.Â If a buyer comes along with a buyerâ€™s agent, the listing agent splits their commission with the buyerâ€™s agent.Â If a buyer comes along without a buyerâ€™s agent, then the listing agent essentially gets paid double commission.
Itâ€™s important to have a buyerâ€™s agent represent your best interest and not work directly with the listing agent. The listing agent has a fiduciary duty to represent the sellerâ€™s best interest, and only gets paid if he/she sells that specific house. A buyerâ€™s agent has a fiduciary duty to represent the buyerâ€™s best interest, and has no incentive to sell a particular property. Therefore, solely has the buyerâ€™s interest in mind with no conflict of interest.
Buying a home is one of lifeâ€™s largest financial decisions. One mistake or misstep could cost tens of thousands of dollars. This could be as simple as not knowing a homeâ€™s true value and over paying, not drafting a purchase offer with the best price, terms and conditions to protect you, finding the best mortgage program for your needs, or hiring the wrong home inspector that may overlook a potential problem. Â Thereâ€™s a reason why the majority of home buyers have a realtor represent their best interests.
We will keep you on the right track and save you a significant amount of time and money throughout the home buying process.
