The listing agent did not tell me that

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Charlottesville Real Estate Solutions

This is a recent comment from a client and the reason is… The listing agent represents the best interests of the seller (not you)…

Think about this for a minute. Virginia is a caveat emptor state (buyer beware) and that is just a fact. Having proper representation is critical for buyers in any market and especially in our area.

This is why Charlottesville Solutions offers buyer representation, it just makes good sense. I see deals all the time where a buyer is not informed of critical information.

A listing agent does not have to tell you about an area, surrounding properties or even if you are near our old county dump. Buying real estate can be a difficult situation, don’t be left out on a limb.

So if you are relocating and looking for Charlottesville Homes, get proper buyer representation, you and your family deserve it.

So many people believe that they can get a good deal by working with the listing agent and that is far from the truth. Every buyer deserves their own agent to represent them so that their best interested are protected.

Hi Charles, It must be interesting to work in a state where you don't have to disclose every little thing that could affect the buyer's enjoyment of the property. It just isn't that way here.

Honesty is the best policy but sometimes agency gets in the way.

Charles, we are also a Buyer Beware state here in NC but listing agents do need to disclose material facts even if the sellers don't want to.
