What Agents Know about Buying a Home that Buyers Don't

By

I came across the following post and thought it illustrated well why people should get their own agent when buying a home. The original post was by John G. Johnston, Broker/Owner of John G. Johnston & Associates LLC, an Exclusive Buyer Brokerage in Westcliffe, CO.

 

 

This House is worth $499,000

Spend 5 minutes with an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent

 

The listing agent’s thinking $650,000.

The Owner’s thinking $599,000.

You’re thinking $550,000.

We’re thinking $490,000.

Think of one reason why you wouldn't use an 

Exclusive Buyer's Agent

 

His tagline goes on to say:

Let me work for you because the agent with the sign in the yard CAN'T!

 

Agents know this makes sense. Yet buyers continue to call listing agents hundreds or thousands of times every single day.

Sure, you say, but he's a buyer's agent. Of course he's going to say it's best to call him.

Well, look at one of the comments he received on his post from a listing agent backing up his premise:

Agents know buyers should have their own representation

 

Proof enough that agents know that buyers will fare better with their own agent representing them. There is nothing wrong with the listing agent getting a buyer to pay as much as possible for a house. That is what their client, the seller, hired them to do. The best way for a buyer to get the best deal is to hire a professional whose interest is aligned with theirs, to work to get the best price and terms for the buyer.

Get Your Own Agent when buying a home! Pass it on!

Exclusive Buyers Agents do not list homes and will not ask you to limit your level of representation. They will be 100% on your side during the transaction, representing YOU, negotiating on YOUR behalf and protecting YOUR interests.

Benjamin, it's always best for buyers to have their own agent representing them. After all, it doesn't cost them anything, and it could be a huge benefit.
