If you're considering buying a home in Northfield, demand that the agent assisting you advocate exclusively on your behalf. If the agent does not put his/her commitment in writing, you are being short-changed. A buyer agency agreement binds agents to put your interests ahead of theirs. They must advocate on your behalf to help you find the best property, they are pledged to do all possible to determine the value of your chosen property, and they are committed to do everything possible to negotiate the best possible price and terms.
Without the buyer agency agreement, a licensed agent is just somebody who unlocks doors for you and shows you where the basement is located. You, the consumer, deserve more. Call me for a Northfield home buying strategy and orientation session. We'll discuss the current state of the housing market, financing trends, the advantage of "owning" a real estate agent, foreclosure purchase risks and rewards, and a lot more. The session is free, and takes about an hour.
My pledge to you is that I will never perform any acts as your representative without signing a commitment to work exclusively to your benefit and on your behalf. Call me now.
