Everything You Need to Know About Buyers Agents

What Is a Buyer’s Agent? 

A buyer’s agent is a very important asset to anyone interested in buying a home. This type of agent represents the interest of the home buyer in a real estate transaction and helps buyers find the home of their dreams. They will help negotiate a fair price and ensure that all the proper steps are taken before their clients sign the closing paperwork. 

5 Things a Buyer’s Agent Should Provide the Buyer 

1. Help you find a home.

One of your agent’s key jobs is to help you realize what you want most out of a new home and find you options that meet your specifications. Your agent will help you decide on location, neighborhood, schools, and other factors. 

2. Negotiate an offer.

A buyer’s agent will help you negotiate the best possible price based on the factors that affect the value of the desired home. Your buyer’s agent will handle negotiations and all paperwork regarding the purchase of your new home.

3. Help with home inspection.

Your agent will help with choosing an inspector to evaluate your new home and the condition that it is in. They will advise the inspector on what to look for depending on the area and history of the home. Your agent will also attend the home inspection to hear everything the inspector has to say about the home. 

4. Communicate with the seller’s agent.

Communication is key when it comes to selling a home. Communication between the buyer’s agent and the buyer is important as well as the communication between the buyer’s agent and seller’s agent. Everyone needs to be on the same page with the house buying process and your buyer’s agent will be responsible for keeping everyone informed and prepared for closing. 

5. Finalize everything for closing.

The buyer’s agent is responsible for tying up all loose ends and ensuring that all paperwork is prepared for closing. There are so many details that go into a home closing that need to be wrapped up before the keys can be placed in your hands. Your agent will be by your side during the closing and support you through the final minutes of your home buying journey.
