What a Buyer's Agent Does

Buyer’s Agents: you’ve probably heard of Buyer’s Agents if you’re active in the real estate market, but you may not understand how they can help you find a new home.  You might be thinking “Well, I can find my own home”, and while that’s true, you may end up not getting the great deal you thought you would – and it will likely take much longer.

A Buyer’s Agent (or Agent from here on) represents the buyer’s best interests throughout the home purchase process – this means they work for you, not the seller.  The Agent finds homes that are right for you based upon what you tell them you are looking for.  The Agent has much more knowledge than you do when it comes to real estate sales and purchases – they know the ins-and-outs and put that knowledge to work for you.  But if you have enough time on your hands, you could do that too, right?

Well, to a degree.  An Agent’s career is focused on the real estate market while yours is probably not.  This allows them to focus entirely on your new home requirements while understanding the laws, the communities and the countless other minute details that you may miss or simply not be aware of.  Here’s a list of some of the things an Agent will do for you (in no particular order).

  • Determine the buyer’s needs.
  • Assist the buyer with determining what they can realistically afford.
  • Assist the buyer in attaining finance pre-qualification.
  • Find homes specific to the buyer’s price range and desired location.
  • Help the buyer with property viewings by accompanying them or previewing the properties
  • Research pre-selected properties in order to find problems – inform buyer of findings.
  • Advise the buyer on purchase offers.
  • Present buyer’s offers to the Seller’s Agent.
  • Assist the buyer in securing financing.
  • Help the buyer with locating movers, utilities, etc.
  • Agent will always negotiate in the buyer’s best interest.
  • Represent the buyer to the best of the Agent’s ability, always keeping the buyer’s best interests at heart.

You can clearly see from this list that there are things an Agent can do for you that would be much more difficult if you go it alone.  And, more often than not, the seller pays for the Agent’s fee.  Sellers love Buyer’s Agents because they help sell their home faster – an average of three weeks faster.
