In Dayton and the Miami Valley area, we hear this question often from buyers because their main concern is viewing a home they’re interested in. Many time, buyers end up working with the listing agent without realizing that the listing agent represents the seller. In other words, the listing agents job and incentive is to get the highest price and best possible terms for the seller.
That’s where buyer agents come in. Buyer agents represent the buyer in the home sale, negotiating the best price and terms for the buyer.
By hiring a buyer’s agent, you protect yourself and your interests in the home sale transaction. Agents have a wealth of experience to draw from – they act as a counselor to ensure you make good decisions, pay a fair price, and don’t skip any necessary inspections.
Some of the best investments are the ones you don’t make; an agent is there to help you make wise choices, even if the choice is to walk away. Buying a home is one of the biggest financial commitments you will make – a buyer agent will help ensure you don’t make any mistakes during the process.
