How buyer agency has changed real estate? And why that is good for you!
Are you thinking about buying a home in Haralson, Carroll, Polk or Paulding county Georgia or even in Cleburne county Alabama? If so, you need to be aware of buyer agency, and how it has made buying real estate better for all buyers. Some buyers only want to work with the listing agent. That could be a big mistake. The following post explains buyer agency.

Several years ago, well 1988 to be exact buyers were allowed to have their own agent represent them in a real estate transaction. It seems amazing, a little like women being given the vote, or equal rights for all! But before this buyers were not represented, all agents in the transaction represented the seller. Regardless of what broker they worked for they were a sub-agent for the seller. So, even if you thought you were being represented you were not. Sort of like having one lawyer represent both parties in a divorce.
Today, many buyers want to remain un-represented as long as they can. They ignore all the benefits that a buyer agent can give them.
