Why You Need A Buyer’s Agent

Buyers Agent

An excellent buyer’s agent will have your back at all times. That is perhaps the best way to look at the relationship. They’re your fiduciary in the strongest sense of the word.

It’s like having your own personal assistant. Tell them when you’re free, and they’ll do most of the work for you.

Professional Experience

It’s crucial to have a bit of help, especially if you’re a first-time buyer or a very busy person. Having us screen the properties for you can save you lots of time. Not only that, but they’ll also view properties to make sure they’re in good order.
A buyer’s agent who has been in the business for a long time will pick up on common problems, such as a damp kitchens, roofing problems and leaks.

Your Negotiator

Many of us don’t like to negotiate, and we’re not always that good at it. You may like the seller and don’t want to upset them. After all, we’re only human. It’s hard to say “no,” or ask someone you like to drop the price or negotiate a needed repair.
Let’s go back to that home inspection that picked up a slight problem. Ask yourself if you have the skill, and confidence, to renegotiate the price of the property. It takes both to close a deal. Once again, this is something that your buyer’s agent can do for you.

Valuation and Finance
Nothing beats turning to a professional to help you purchase a property at fair market value, or less, if you’re lucky. One of the best skills of a buyer’s agent is to be able to evaluate the right purchase price for the home.
Financing can be a nightmare, as well. Sure, you may have your mortgage preapproval, but when it comes to buying a home and financing it, there’s often a mountain of paperwork to work through. A buyer’s agent will help you to do so, and make sure the process stays on track. They explain fundamental real estate terms you might not be familiar with. For example, a significant percentage of buyers don’t know the difference between earnest money and a down payment. Understanding the function of each of these things is crucial for a buyer to understand. There are a myriad of others.
Professional Contacts
It’s not just you and your bank manager. You’ll also need the help of other professionals, such as a home inspector. What if the home inspector picks up a problem during the inspection, and you need an estimate for work? A buyer’s agent is likely to have the right contacts at their fingertips, and will also be familiar with the process.
The Paperwork

Your buyer’s agent can help make certain that important documents are not overlooked and can also walk you through each one in order to make clarifications on any details that aren’t clear to you, as well as give you the information you need to complete them properly.

Buying a home involves various types of documentation including:

● Preapproval letters
● Disclosure statements
● Offer letters
● Inspection reports
● Purchase agreements
● Deed
● Bill of sale
● Title paperwork
● Mortgage
● Loan application

They Can Work For You Long-Term
The best thing about finding a buyer’s agent you trust is that you can use them again and again. Even after you’ve found a home that checks the boxes for what you and your family currently want and need, it can be wise to stay in touch with your agent beyond the closing in case you decide to move again in the future.
By forming an extended relationship with your buyer’s agent, they’ll be able to develop a stronger sense of what kind of house would be ideal for you and direct you toward listings that better reflect your needs the next time you want to look for a home.
Going to the Listing Agent Isn't Smart
Quite often, buyers think if they go to the seller’s agent, they’ll give them back some of the commission. While this may be true, the agent works in the best interests of the seller, not you!
