The 3 most important words in real estate TODAY are:
Location - Location - Location
Exclusive - Buyers - Agent!
While any licensed real estate agent can be a 'buyers agent', an Exclusive Buyers Agent offers a higher level of service through their 100% commitment to home buyers.
You are about to make the largest purchase of your life. Which would you prefer: A 'part time' buyers agent, or an Exclusive Buyers Agent, 100% committed to serving and representing you, the home buyer?
An Exclusive Buyers Agent is a specialist in representing home buyers in all phases of the transaction. They work for an office that does not list homes for sale, so they never have anything to 'sell' you but their specialized knowledge and expertise in assisting home buyers.
Ask every Agent you talk to these questions:
- Will you show me all the homes on the market that meet my needs, including For Sale By Owner properties?
- Will you guarantee that any information I give you will be kept confidential?
- Will you guarantee me your undivided loyalty?
- Will you guarantee me you will not try to change your relationship with me to "dual agency", "designated agent", transactional agent", or any other form of agency that offers reduced levels of service and could possibly compromise my negotiating position?
- Will you guarantee me that you will not be representing any seller at any time while you are working for me?
- Will you point out all the negative aspects of each property as well as the positive aspects so I will be fully informed when making my decision?
- Do you have any agreements with Sellers that might limit your ability to tell me everything you know about the Seller and their reasons for selling?
- Will you provide information on comparable sales and help me formulate an offering price and negotiating strategy?
- Do you have a list of lenders, home inspectors, insurance agents and other professionals that you recommend?
- Do you, or the company you are with, ever list homes for sale? (If they say "yes", they are not an Exclusive Buyers Agent.)
- Specifically, how will you protect my interests, and why should I hire you rather than another agent?
- Will you act in a Fiduciary capacity and owe all Fiduciary Duties to me?
- Do you spend 100% of your time assisting Buyers?
- If you or your agency lists homes for sale, is your commission rate higher if you sell an "in house" listing?
- Can you guarantee me 100% loyalty 100% of the time?
- Will you put all of that in writing?
