Wow, what a great question to ask! Traditionally, when a seller lists a house for sale, they hire an agent. That agent takes care of all aspects of selling the home…for the SELLER! The agent was hired by the seller, so that agent WORKS for the seller. If you, as a buyer, call about a house you saw on the internet or after seeing the “for sale” sign in the yard, you are calling the agent that works for the Seller! That agent is not allowed to talk to you about very crucial areas such as accurate pricing, terms the seller may accept, or the motivation of the seller.
Now, if you work with me as a buyer’s agent, First, I will search the MLS and other sources to find homes that meet your criteria, then we will visit them together. In the mean time, I can help you set up your financing plan, and educate you about the current market. While visiting homes, We can talk to you about pricing, whether or not a home we are touring is under-priced, over-priced, or priced accurately. Anything we talk about is held strictly confidential, so the seller will not know anything about you unless you choose to share that info. I represent you, so my goal is to help you get the absolute best deal you can! After we put a deal together, I continue to help you every step of the way up to the day of closing to make sure everything goes well. (Ex. Home inspections, financing snafu’s, ensuring repairs are completed, etc.
