Why Do You Need A Buyers Agent

 I have a couple of questions:

1) Do you know what a Buyer's Agent is? This is someone who helps guide and explain the process, and gives you as much information so that you make a home selection based on knowledge and not just on emotion. (An emotional decision could be a costly one to you.)

2) Do you know who pays the Buyer's Agent? The Seller agrees to a total commission amount with the Agent who lists and represents them. From that total commission that is split with the Buyer's Agent. This give the buyer the representation throughout the process, uses my knowledge and experience and not have to pay for it!

3) Does the Seller pay less commission if the Listing Agent brings a Buyer? Not at all, the seller pays the total amount to the Listing Agent. In all cases the Listing Agent represents the Seller and works to get the best deal for the Seller. 

4) Given this does it make sense to have a Buyers Agent? I'm not sure how you'd answer that. Give me fifteen min. to introduce myself to you and share a packet of information about the home buying process, then tell me what you think. 

In closing what I tell all the people I work with, the only thing I sell is myself to you. Once someone hires me if we walk into a home that you find of interest and it is not what you want, we turn and walk out the door. This is your home, not mine and my job is to help you meet your home needs and goal!

Let's have coffee soon,
