Most of us think of a real estate agent as a representative for the seller, which they usually are. But having your own agent to help you buy a home can save you time and money. A good buyer’s agent can help you find the right home quickly because they know the area and have access to listings, agent open houses and other information. Your buyer’s agent can advise you on market conditions and prices, pre-inspect homes for you so you don’t waste time on something completely unsuitable and recommend the professionals you may need, from home inspectors to lawyers. The seller’s agent has a legal responsibility to act in their clients’ best interest, not yours. You need a trained professional in your corner, and that is a buyer’s agent.
It is essential to communicate exactly what your needs are to your Buyer’s Agent, so you are both looking for the same home. Choose your agent with as much care as if you were selling a home, and if he or she wants you to enter into a formal agreement, make sure it includes a cancellation clause in case you aren’t satisfied with the service.
We work with several agents and would be more than happy to recommend a buyer’s agent for you. If you’re interested in finding a real-estate agent, call us at 865-909-0211 or fill out our contact form.
