Importance of having a Realtor for a Buyer

A buyer’s agent is an agent who is specifically working on behalf of the purchaser. That agent is not only responsible for helping you find the right home, but also is legally bound to represent your best interests. Plus, in most cases the seller pays the commission, meaning the buyer agent's service is free to you.

By Working with a Realtor® the Buyer is given:

  1. STRATEGY: A qualified buyer’s agent can help you determine a bidding strategy and determine the best price to offer based on market conditions. This assures you (the buyer) get the best price!
  2. MARKET ANALYSIS: Our Realtors® know the market and understand where to look for the type of property you are wanting.
  3. YOUR REPRESENTATIVE: We look out for your best interest as a buyer; asking questions, obtaining information, helping negotiate the deal, and making sure you understand the legal process.
  4. PROCESS: We make it easy for you and guide you through every step to find your dream home.
  5. CONFIDENTIALITY: An agent working for you will keep your information private and not share it with the seller or listing agent. Learn more reasons and advantages of having a Mike Thomas Associates Realtor®
