EXCLUSIVE BUYERS REPRESENTATION
What does it mean?

EXCLUSIVE BUYERS AGENTS: are agents who ONLY WORK FOR BUYERS!  They never take listings and NEVER represent sellers.  They always represent buyers only and NEVER practice dual agency.  "Dual Agents" are allowed to represent both buyer AND seller but, at The Buyer's Realty, we believe that the only way to TRULY represent buyers is by acting as an EXCLUSIVE Buyer's agent.  That way our buyers are guaranteed that there is no conflict of interest.  Only Buyer's Agents can legally put the buyer's interest first and negotiate in favor of the buyers for a lower price and favorable terms.

A real estate agent may work with any buyer, but unless he/she professes (from the origination of your relationship) to be a buyer's representative, the agent is not working for you. An agent working for you will provide all of the services of a traditional agent, as well as many other very important services at no cost to you!

Negotiation: We will negotiate the price of the home for you since our job is to get the best price for you, the buyer! A seller's agent is legally bound to obtain the highest price for the seller.

Confidentiality: A factor of utmost importance in a real estate transaction! All information you share such as your financial status and how much you are willing to pay for the home is held in strict confidence. Our responsibility is to you! A seller's agent is legally bound to share all he learns from you with the seller.

Advise and Troubleshoot: We make sure all facets of your transaction run smoothly and timely and try to intercept problems before they arise. We do the foot work, the phone work and the home work for you. A seller's agent has ethical obligations, but legally he can only do that which will benefit his seller.

Access to MLS: We have complete access to MLS (Multiple Listing Service), which is a database of all available property listed by all other agents.

NO Conflicts of Interest:   We NEVER represent sellers or act as aval agents claiming to represent both buyer and sellers. Since an exclusive buyers' agent does not list property, we can remain unbiased about which properties we show you. We will show you all of the homes in your price range. A conflict of interest will never arise. We have no particular interest in any particular property, so the entire market is open to you! A traditional agency also lists property. An agency's priority is generally to sell inter-office listing, as the earned commission increases.


Why consider entering into a real estate transaction without a Buyer's Representative? Why indeed!
