5 Reasons To Use A Buyer’s Agent

By Tina Abraham

Real estate transactions come with risks, competition, and expenses. With your financial and family future on the line, there are five reasons to use a buyer’s agent in order to give you a fighting chance.

The buyer’s agent is a Realtor that has gone through special training with the National Board of Realtors. The training authorizes the Realtor to use the specialized sub-title in addition to the Realtor title they already carry. The Realtor is a real estate specialist. Therefore when you attain the help of a buyer’s agent, you are also getting the experience and training of a Realtor.

A buyer’s agent does many things that decrease the risk of purchasing a home for their clients. They also increase the overall satisfaction of the sale, because they look for specific qualifications and amenities. Here are some of the steps a buyer’s agent will take to give you the highest level of happiness with your new home.


1. The buyer’s agent will make sure that there are the correct inspections, appraisals, and market analysis complete to ensure that your purchase is made with a full understanding of what to expect after the completion of the purchase. The buyer’s agent or Realtor will make good recommendations to let you know whether the home is safe for your family.

2. A Realtor, or buyer’s agent knows the market. They will also know if the price the sellers are asking for is the price you should be paying. They will also know how to negotiate a better price for your benefit. Therefore, you will be making your purchase for the best deal possible.

3. A Realtor, or buyer’s agent will know what the newest listings are. They pay for listing information that keeps them up to date on the newest and the best. This is why the Realtor or buyer’s agent will be able to help you find a home easier and give you a much broader set options to look at. Realtors also work close with each other to help meet the needs of their clients. Since the majority of homes for sale are exclusively listed with a Realtor or real estate agent, some times the only way you will get this information is through a Realtor. Also a Realtor will use all their tools to gain the best list of homes for you. This would be the use of the MLS or nationwide multiple listing service, their company listing service, and many other options.

4. A Realtor will likely know a home is for sale, before it ever hits the Internet. An MLS listing of a home can take between one and ten days to show up. By that time the home could already be sold. Word of mouth just like in any other business works for you. You need to find the right home, so your Realtor will tell other realtor’s about you, and then that Realtor will look at what he has. It is just like having a personal liaison in your corner doing all the work for you.

5. Realtors or buyer’s agents understand the contracts, legal documents and the complexity of the overall closing process. Your Realtor will know how to complete the consumer-mandated seller’s disclosure, the environmental and structural reports, among all the many other legal reports. Your agent will also interpret the information in the transaction that may be more difficult to understand.

There are many reasons to use a buyer’s agent. The biggest thing to remember is that in most cases the buyer’s agent is paid from the commission from the sale of the house. Therefore, you really would not be paying anything extra. So having the security of having someone on your side is more logical than any other move you will make when purchasing a home.
