What a Buyer’s Agent Brings to the Table
Do those looking for homes really need a buyer’s agent? Find out why an agent’s help is an invaluable part of the home buying process.
“Do I really need a buyer’s agent?”
Homebuyers often ask this question, and my answer to them is this: No matter if you’re a skilled real estate investor or a first-time homebuyer, it’s always in your best interest to be represented by a buyer’s agent.
But why is that?
A buyer’s agent works on your behalf only. Everything that you tell them is 100% confidential. They’ll work with you on the transaction from start to finish, from negotiating the best offer for the property you want to showing you all the past sales and currently active listings in your area. This will help you make a skilled and educated offer on the property of your choice.
This also means they’ll be by your side during the home inspection process, where they’ll help you negotiate on repairs that you’d like the seller to make.
When you’re going through the loan process, your buyer’s agent will be there to handle any appraisal issues or concerns that may come up.
Lastly, they’ll accompany you during your final walk-through, which is a very important aspect of the process. Together with your agent, you’ll get to make sure that the sellers have done all the repairs that you requested. And then when the closing time arrives, your buyer’s agent will be there to hand you over the keys to your property.
