Buying a home is a big decision that can come with unnecessary stress if you don’t have the right information. It’s common to wonder if you’re getting the best deal on the home or if the location is suitable for your needs.

🙋‍♂️ Why do I need a buyer’s agent?

Understanding that these concerns are normal is part of the process and having a buyer’s agent on your side can help elevate some of the stress. They will help you find a home, negotiate the contract, and be with you throughout the entire transaction and beyond.

❓ What is a buyer’s agent?

A buyer’s agent works solely with the buyer during the sale of a property. They help their clients when it comes to local knowledge, understanding the legal aspects of the sale, and finding a home that meets their needs.

A buyer’s agent also helps when it comes to negotiations that may be needed due to counteroffers, appraisal details, or inspection issues. They work with the seller and their agent, so you don’t need to deal with them directly.

Because a buyer’s agent works only with the buyer when it comes to the sale, they are focused on the needs and considerations of the buyer without needing to balance the desires of the seller. A listing agent or seller’s agent works with a home seller.

👥 What is an exclusive buyer’s agent?

When it comes to real estate, an exclusive buyer’s agent will only work with those who are working towards purchasing a home or property. They do not work with sellers or take listings, so they never represent the person on the sale side of the transaction.

👍 What are the benefits of hiring a buyer’s agent?

Let’s take everything you know about the real estate business and compare it to the wealth of knowledge that a real estate agent has acquired after years working in this industry. Combine their knowledge with the experience that comes from working with home buyers full time, and it’s easy to see that one of the major benefits is the complete knowledge base you’ll have access to through your agent.

Scared of paying too much for a home? Your real estate agent follows current market trends closely and knows the local market. They can advise you when it comes to creating an offer that makes sense for the property and your goals.

At a loss when it comes to the closing process? Your real estate agent has been through many closings and can help you navigate the paperwork and process with ease.

One of the biggest benefits to working with a buyer’s agent is that you can rest assured that they are working on your behalf and have your best interest in mind. There is no conflict of interest with the seller because they aren’t working for them.

💰 Who pays the buyer’s agent?

The real estate agent who represents you in the sale will likely receive a commission for their work. However, as the home buyer, you are not the one who pays this commission.

Real Estate Agent Commission

The commission is paid by the home seller. Generally, this commission that the seller pays is divided by the seller’s agent and the buyer’s agent.

How much the buyer’s agent receives as their percentage of the commission is included in the terms of the contract. Their commission is delivered to them once the sale transaction is complete and all fees have been paid.
