Buyer Real Estate Questions:  

Q.  Why do I need an Exclusive Buyer's Agent?

A.  Any agent can provide the following services to any buyer:  Arrange Property Showings, Assist with Obtaining Financing, Provide Details on the Property and Explain the Forms and Agreements.  However there is far more to buying real estate than just those things.  By contract, an exclusive Buyer's Agent can provide you with those services above as well as all of these additional services:   Confidential Assistance (your exclusive buyer’s agent will never disclose the reason you are buying or what you are willing to pay for a property),  Gives Expert Advice on what to offer or what to include in the price you offer and will help to ensure that you do not Overpay for a home and get you the Best Price,  Discover and Disclose information about the property … even reasons not to buy, 

Any single one of these services can save you thousands of dollars or possibly save you from the heartache of buying the wrong home. It was established over 10 years ago that buyers also deserved representation. Prior to that, all realtors actually had to work for the seller, often leading to lawsuits as buyers thought they were being represented equally, when in fact only the Sellers interests were being represented.   An Excusive Buyer's Agent is legally obligated to look after YOUR best interest as a buyer.
