What You Should Know About Buyer's Agents
You wouldn't randomly choose a real estate agent when selling a house. You'd get recommendations, interview candidates and make sure you found the right fit.
Yet, when it comes to buying a house, many of us aren't so diligent about finding a buyer's agent.
Buyer's agents are licensed real-estate agents. Unlike a seller's agent, they work exclusively on behalf of the buyer. They can also help you find a real-estate lawyer to examine the sales contracts and inspectors to examine your dream property.
Generally the Buyer's Agent is paid by the listing broker.
A Buyer Agency Agreement ensures your realtor negotiates in your best interest.
