We might be the only person helping you.
When you talk to a normal real estate agent, do you realize that the agent is not working for you, but is working for the seller? Even if the agent appears helpful to you, their responsibility is to help the seller sell the property and not to help you buy. Similarly, the attorney at the closing is working for the bank and is not looking out for your interests.
Think about it. What is likely the largest purchase of your life is normally guided by people whose interests are in helping the seller or the bank. Who is looking out for your interests?
Level the playing field
A "Buyer's Agent" is a real estate agent that works for you. We look for homes that fits your needs, help you to make a reasonable offer, advocate your position during negotiations, and advise you on the most advantageous mortgage options.
What we don't do is list properties for sale. This way, our focus can be exclusively on helping people through the often-confusing process of buying a home.
At closing, don't face a table filled with people looking out for someone else's advantage. Have a Buyers Agent at your side to level the playing field.
