Focusing on the Internet Home Buyer in Sacramento

By
Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

Home buyers begin their shopping experience on the internet. It's not a secret that many Sacramento home buyers navigate to popular online websites that try to aggragate MLS listings. Even our own MetroList competes with its paid subscribers for eyeballs. Home buyers think it's all about the product. Sacramento buyer's agents know it's a difficult trek between the product and closing.

How do you come to a meeting of the minds? Agents need to offer value. And we offer value as exclusive buyer's agents in Sacramento, which are a bit difficult to find in Sacramento. Usually you have agents hungrily scrambling to work both sides of the fence (buyers and sellers), but not with exclusive buyer's agents. A buyer's needs are very different from a seller's.

Since it costs the same, which is nothing to a buyer, why not pick the best? You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Why Buyers Should Hand Pick a Sacramento Buyer's Agent.

Absolutely. When I worked as a builder representative, I encouraged buyers to seek their own representation. Turns out the builder didn't love me for it. Hey, the clients did, and I was able to go out on my own with a nice new list of names to add to my SOI. Interview agents carefully, whether listing or buying. As you mention, the price is the same ( or should be), choose the best.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD The price is the same in Sacramento for a buyer's agent as for an exclusive buyer's agent. Just because the exclusive buyer's agents are better trained, smarter and sexier, well, let's just say it ain't the luck of the Irish.

Hi Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents - It is great if you can key in on one area such as an exclusive buyer agent. I have found that I get so much more activity off my listings.  Working with buyers and listings keeps me on top of my game.

Hi Elizabeth- things change and I'm sure there are still many out there who do not understand the advantage of having someone whose responsibility is to look out for your interest alone.

I love how you categorized that, Elizabeth... "hand pick." I always say to buyers that "the seller has his/her interests represented, don't you want yours represented as well?" And I personally avoid being a dual agent as I firmly believe it's an inherent conflict of interest.

Elizabeth, I have quite a few on-line buyers on my site, and reach out to see if they would like to view the homes they favorite, and never hear from them.  Guess they like my site, but have an agent.

Buyers should pick the best and you are certainly one of the best around, Elizabeth.
