A lot of buyers are uncertain or conflicted about hiring a buyer’s agent. A lot of people think they should just work with the agent listing the home, and give them a call. This is a mistake.

The person listing the home has a fiduciary responsibility to the seller to get the highest and best offer they can for the property. How is that in your best interest as a buyer, knowing that the other party wants the highest and best offer? It’s not.


Another reason to hire a buyer’s agent is because their services are free to you! The seller of the property is the one responsible for paying commission to both agents in the transaction.

Finally, a buyer’s agent has access to all kinds of properties that are available. They can represent you in pretty much any situation, including bank-owned properties, For Sale by Owner, and new construction. A buyer’s agent has access to information that tells you how much you should be paying for a property. A seller may have a great home, but it also might be listed at an unrealistic price. A buyer’s agent will do whatever they can to determine the property’s value so you don’t overpay.

If you have any questions for me, don’t hesitate to reach out. I would love to hear from you. Give me a call or send me an email today.
