FAQ’s About Buying a Home
WHY NOT HAVE SELLERS' REPS WHOSE SIGNS ARE IN THE YARDS SHOW US HOUSES?
“Home Buyers may not realize that the friendly real estate agent who has shown them through dozens of homes and shared their secrets is legally obligated to use that information to help get the best possible price and terms for the seller.” – Consumer Reports, July 1997
AREN'T REAL ESTATE PEOPLE SUPPOSED TO REPRESENT US AS BUYERS?
“You don’t truly have an advocate in your corner unless you both sign a contract saying so.” – Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.
WHO PAYS FOR THE BUYER'S AGENT'S SERVICES?
Seller. Most often, your EBA (Exclusive Buyer’s Agent) is included in the purchase price. If you do not hire your own agent, the seller’s representative may be paid twice as much for not representing you.
CAN AN EXCLUSIVE BUYER AGENT SAVE US MONEY?
“If you have ever doubted the value of real estate agents who work solely for home buyers (as opposed to traditional agents who report to sellers). Consider this: a recent study by U.S. Sprint found that 233 relocating Sprint employees who hire buyer brokers paid an average of 91% of a home’s list price. People who use traditional agents typically pay about 96%. On a house priced at $150,000, that’s a difference of $7,500.” -Money Magazine
