1. A buyer's agent will help you find financing even if you don't have perfect credit. I have a team of lenders who specialize in VA, FHA, USDA, and conventional financing. We will find financing to suit your needs. Finding the right mortgage lender can be daunting without the guidance of a real estate professional.
2. A buyer's agent can give you access to properties that are not yet on the market or found online. If you don't want to miss out on the perfect home, don't rely solely on your internet search.
3. A buyer's agent will offer expertise in writing an offer and handle all the paperwork. Buyer's agents have the tools to analyze markets and neighborhoods to make sure your offer is a fair one. By guessing at an offer, you can miss out on your dream home or pay too much.
4. It's simple. It's much easier to have someone else negotiate on your behalf. A buyer's gent will communicate with the seller's agent, and it's not awkward. It's what we do! A seller's agent has the duty to perform for their client and not you. You can weaken your negotiating position by communicating directly with a seller, through his agent.
5. A buyer's agent will recommend inspectors and guide you through the inspection period of the contract. You can avoid purchasing a money pit with a team of great professionals working for you.
6. A buyer's agent will negotiate repairs and home warranties from the seller. Buyer's agents also can recommend other professionals like contractors to make sure the repairs are done properly.
7. Lastly, I can't say it enough. Don't be unrepresented in the transaction. A listing agent will act in the best interest of his client. It can prove costly to negotiate on your own. Also, the effective communication between a buyer's and seller's agent ensures all parties are on the same page throughout the process.
What can a Buyer's Agent do for you?
It is the Duty of the listing agent to act in the best interest of the seller not the buyer.
