FAQ for Door County Real Estate: Do I need a Buyer Agent to buy property in Door County, Wisconsin?
Short answer: No, you do not. You can work with the agent of the Seller, but that means the Seller is representing his or her client--you will be respresented as a "customer".
Long answer: A Buyer Agent works for YOU under an exclusive agency contract. Sometimes, signing a contract prior to a sales contract can make a Buyer nervous. However, a BUYER AGENT signs that contract to REPRESENT YOU and to work in your BEST INTEREST to procure a Door County property---a home, condominium or vacant land.
Although many brokers can represent buyers, not all are Accredited Buyer Representatives.

The Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR®) designation is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation as established by the real estate industry. This coveted designation is awarded to real estate practitioners by the Real Estate Buyer's Agent Council ("REBAC") of the National Association of REALTORS® who meet the specified educational and practical experience criteria.
Buyers who hire an ABR via a contract between the Buyer and the Broker receive personalized agent representation throughout the home-buying process that strives to ensure a fair and ethical transaction. Buyers technically have an advantage when using an ABR, because the buyer's representative seeks to protect the home buyer, not the seller. An ABR also helps the buyer by researching homes available on the market, suggesting a realistic offer price and assisting with the negotiations process.
The main question should not be "Should I use a Door County Buyer Agent to purchase a Door County property" but probably "Are there any good reasons that I should NOT use a Door County Buyer Agent to look out for my best interests in purchasing real estate in Door County?"
Working with a Buyer Agent for your Door County real estate purchase is a very important part of procuring the right property at the right price.
