When a client agrees to work exclusively through me in their next purchase of real estate, they are, in essence, ‘hiring’ me. But that doesn’t mean it costs them anything. If the property they buy is in the MLS or is a “FSBO” (For Sale By Owner) that pays a Buyer’s Agent commission, I only get paid if the client buys—and then 100% of what I get paid comes from the seller. And what I offer in exchange is, I think, important. Here is the first reason:

1. Total support

A National Association of Realtors® “Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers” found four main things buyers want from a Real Estate Professional—and I promise all my clients complete support on all four of these points.

2. A superior Property Search system

Property searching is another example of the advantage a good Buyer’s Agent offers. Everyone knows that you can now look for properties on the internet. But not everyone realizes that all public listings are limited in nature; none offer the detail I can provide through our exclusive connectMLS. The two pictures that follow illustrate the difference in depth of information (the public search is on the left, connectMLS is on the right).

Very good post Kathleen.... You are right, a good buyer's agent will always give total support, including excellent, accurate information from the MLS.
