Why you need your own real estate agent when buying a home:
Did you know that the listing agent is working directly for the seller? It’s their job to get the best price and best terms for the Seller. A buyer agent works directly for you, trying to get you the best price and terms. Would you use your spouse’s lawyer in your divorce? Why would you use someone that is forbidden to disclose any information regarding the sellers and their motivation to sell. You need an exclusive buyer agent in order to negotiate the lowest price and most favorable terms for a buyer.
Also, remember having your own buyer agent costs you NOTHING! It’s the sellers that pay our commissions.
