In brief, we are YOUR ADVOCATE
What is a Real Estate Buyer Agent?
Buyer’s Agent is a licenced real estate agent who represents only the buyer of a property in a real estate transaction.
We specialize in searching, locating, researching the surrounding neighbourhood and schools, ensuring the property is inspected, negotiating the best sale price for the property on behalf of the Buyer, and necessary due diligence.
This type of agent agrees to exclusively represent the best interest of the Buyer, under a formal contract.
Benefits of using Buyer’s Agents
In brief, we are YOUR ADVOCATE.
“A buyer’s agent will guide you through the home-buying transaction and be at your disposal for any questions or concerns”
says Irina Schmith, a senior consultant with Swiss Trust.
Here are some of the things a buyer’s agent can do:
- Find the right property.
After determining what clients or investors are looking for and what they can afford, the agent will schedule appointments to tour homes. The agent can also explain the ins and outs of various properties and neighbourhoods to help buyers decide which home is right for them by explaining the pros and cons of various options.
- Negotiate the offer.
The buyer’s agent will advise investors on an appropriate price to offer and present it to the seller’s agent. This is where the agent’s experience in negotiating deals can save you money and help you avoid pitfalls like a fixer-upper that’s more trouble than it’s worth.
- Help overcome setbacks.
If the home inspector’s report or appraisal brings new issues to light, a buyer’s agent can advise you on how to proceed, and then act as a buffer between you and the sellers or their agent. It’s extremely helpful to have an experienced professional keeping calm and offering productive solutions.
- Coordination of support services.
Along with this commitment, GPW and the Buyer Agent also coordinate efforts needed to have a successful transaction (contracts and Title Deeds) by referring the investor or client to reliable mortgage and insurance brokers, real estate attorneys, home inspectors, movers, and more.
This can also help expedite each step of the process and move the Buyers to a successful process all the faster.
