It’s important that you choose an experienced Realtor who is there for you. Your agent should be actively finding you potential homes, keeping you informed of the entire process, negotiating furiously on your behalf, and answering all of your questions with competence and speed.
First, find an agent who represents you and not the seller. This is beneficial during the negotiation process. If you are working with a buyer’s agent, he or she is required not to tell the seller any of your confidential information. In addition, he or she is also focused on getting you the best deal. One of the first things you will be asked to sign is the Metro II Realty Consumer’s Guide to Agency Relationships, which will spell out how your relationship with your agent will work.
When you use a buyer’s agent, you will see more properties. Not only are they plugged into their Multiple Listing Service, but they are also actively finding homes that are not yet listed. You may be asked to sign an exclusive agreement to work with your Buyer’s agent – this protects your working relationship.
