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: email@example.com. 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!!
