The Secret Big Corporations Have Known For Years.
Buyer Agency is not something that started yesterday. In fact, it has been around for more than 30 years. But the only ones who knew about it were big corporations who made huge real estate purchases.
They knew they needed someone they could trust who would research every available property to see if they were suitable for their needs, delve into property values to discover the real market value of the property, and negotiate skillfully with the Seller or their Agent. They needed their own representative that they knew would find the right property at the right price and protect their interests 100%.
The only way to meet all these objectives was to employ their own Agent. A big corporation could afford to hire their own full time agent but up until the last 4 or 5 years the home buyer didn't have that alternative. Now, you can have that same level of service at no extra expense! Take a tip from these corporations: Insist on having your own Agent to represent you!
There is a huge difference between an ordinary Agent who is acting as a Buyer's Agent part time and a real, full time Buyer's Agent who is 100% committed to serving only Buyers.
