Why should I sign a Buyers Agent Agreement?
All the services you require, at NO CHARGE TO YOU! Many people mistakenly think that a listing agent represents the buyer and seller equally, however this is usually not the case. In residential transactions, listing agents are the legal agents of the sellers and are under contract to pursue the best interests of the seller. The best way to make sure that your interests are looked after is to hire a Buyers Agent to work exclusively for you. Sellers make an arrangement with the listing brokerage to pay a buyer’s agent a commission for selling the property. The commissions are paid from the sale of the home to the seller’s agent who intern pays the buyer’s agent, as per the MLS listing ageement. When a property is for sale through an exclusive agreement there is no specific offer to pay a buyers agent. Therefore, there is no out of pocket cost to you to hire a Buyers Agent, only the benefit of having one help in looking for and then negotiating the purchase of your new home.
