The Imprtance of Having a Buyer's Agent Represent You

September 6th, 2014 9:09 AM by Bobby Hill

FACT:  It is in your best interest to have a Buyer Agent represent you whether you purchase a new or existing home.

Myth:  If I go directly to the Builder Rep or Listing Agent - I will get a better deal. WRONG.  Did you know the Builder Rep and Listing Agent are being paid by the Seller to represent them and get them the best deal for the Seller/Builder? Did you know if you go directly to the Builder Rep or Listing Agent they will most likely get paid double commission for NOT representing you? 

Fact: The Listing Agent/Builder Reps are there to sell the Seller or Builder's home at the BEST price for the Seller/Builder.  They will not tell you what is wrong with house, the lot, or the neighborhood.  I have seen this happen many times over the years.  They cannot advise you when making an offer on things such as price, closing costs, upgrades, and other important things.

Question: So why would you NOT want a Buyer's Agent to represent you (and not the Seller) when there is no cost to you? 

Note: The Commission has already been set by Seller/Builder with the Listing Agent/Builder Rep.  The Seller pays the Buyer Agent.  So if you do not have a Buyer Agent then the Listing or Builder Rep makes more.  Talk about taxation without representation. 

If you do not have a Buyer's Agent and would like a Recommendation, then please Call/Email me. Mobile: 919-614-0388 or Email:  natalyahill@bellsouth.net.  I will connect you with an Experienced Buyer's Agent that can help you find your dream home and negotiate the BEST deal for you at NO Cost to you!!
