1. No Cost
Hiring a Buying agent doesn’t cost you a penny; all the commission costs are borne by the seller, which is split between the buying and listing agents. While some home buyers are under the impression that they can save money by purchasing a home through the listing agent, the fact is that the commission is already negotiated with the seller and cemented with a selling contract.
2. More Homes For Sale
Buying agents can help you find houses for sale right when they hit the market. They can find properties that match your search criteria that you may have overlooked, and may save you time by helping to cross homes off the list before you see them by knowing your preferences.
3. Better Price
A listing agent works for the seller, it’s in their best interest to sell the property as quickly and for as close to the asking price as possible. This presents an inherent conflict of interest as a buying agent should be interested in getting you the best price. Having your own representative in the home buying process will help you get the best price possible.
4. Smoother Transaction
When you purchase your home through a listing agent you are depending on them to fill out the paperwork for both sides, schedule inspections and appraisals, and send paperwork to your lawyer and mortgage company. In the meantime they are busy scheduling other showings for the home; as the sale is not final until the subjects are removed. A buying agent will be focused on your paperwork alone to ensure a smooth transaction.
5. Better Experience
From start to finish, hiring a buying agent will prove to be a better experience than contacting various listing agents to view and place offers on homes. They will be your advocate, your search engine, and your negotiator throughout the home buying process.
