SHOULD I HIRE A BUYER AGENT:
As a buyer, you have a choice in representation. Most buyers today do choose to have a Realtor represent their interests in a real estate transaction. This is also known as Agency Representation (or fiduciary representation), which simply means that the Realtor you hire is legally bound to represent your interests. This involves the highest standard of care and extreme loyalty to you, the “client.” As your Realtor I will discuss representation with you and will request your commitment in writing for this level of service.
AS YOUR BUYER REPRESENTATIVE I WILL:
Provide you with the highest standard of care and extreme loyalty to you as the client
Understand your specific needs and wants, and locate appropriate properties
Assist in determining how much you can afford
Help you get pre-approved for your mortgage
Accompany you in viewing properties
Research properties to identify any problems or issues you should consider
Advise you in formulating your offer
Help you develop your negotiation strategy
Provide a list of qualified, trusted contacts (such as inspectors, lawyers, lenders, etc.) for other related services that may be needed
Keep track of all the details throughout the entire transaction—to closing and beyond
In other words, I will make your home buying experience go as smoothly and successfully as possible.
