BUYER REPRESENTATION FACTS
Should I have my own agent? Of course you should! Here are just a few of the reasons why:
1. The listing brokerage was hired by the seller to represent the seller’s best interest. By law, the listing agent has a fiduciary duty to represent the seller’s best interests.
2. How can the buyer expect the listing agent to negotiate the best possible price and terms for the buyer when they already have a fiduciary duty to do so for the seller? Negotiations between the buyer and seller can continue throughout the transaction; price, terms, repairs or credits, and any number of fine points.
3. Your own agent will typically be that voice of reason and independent opinion when it comes to the deficiencies or downsides of a property. A listing agent who wants to get the property sold may not be so forthcoming in pointing out flaws or negative characteristics the buyer should be made aware of.
4. Feeling comfortable with sharing confidential information with your agent can be key to getting terms and conditions that work best for you. This can be difficult to do when an agent is representing the seller also.
The bottom line—work with an agent who is advocating just for you. You deserve it!
