There are many, many benefits to using your very own realtor as your agent when you purchase
a home or property.
The number one reason is fiduciary duty. This means that your buyer’s agent will act for you in YOUR best interest, no one else’s. You are the buyer’s agent primary principal, not the developer or the seller.
#2) having your own buyer’s agent does NOT cost you anything extra to use your very own buyer’s agent.
#3) you get your very own area expert who knows the different communities along with all sorts of other important considerations.
#4) your buyer’s agent will contact all seller’s agents and set up your showing appointments and map out the most efficient route to use everyone’s time effectively.
Let’s recap, you are getting a real estate specialist who knows the area, can help you find the home or property you want, can negotiate terms, price and conditions all in YOUR best interests for NO ADDITIONAL COST TO YOU!
A realtor may ask you to sign a buyer’s agency agreement. This is very similar to a listing agreement that the seller would enter into with a realtor when they are listing their property.
This buyer’s agency agreement helps establish an exclusive commitment and trust between the buyer and the buyer’s agent in fiduciary duty. Under this agreement buyer’s confidentiality is respected along with the agents’ commission that will be paid out by the seller and/or listing brokerage when the buyer’s purchase is completed.
Here are some questions to ask your buyer’s agent:
How long have you been working in real estate industry?
Are you a member of the BCS MLS here in Cabo and the Baja?
What communities and areas do you specialize in?
Where can I learn more about you? Do you have a website?
What types of properties do you have experience with?
Do you have business affiliates you can refer me to? Home inspector? Notary? Trades?
What is your negotiating style?
What is your current relationship with past clients?
In the end, what really matters is what your heart and gut are telling you. Do you trust the realtor you are considering working with? Do you feel that they are listening to you and what you want? Do you like them?
There are so many benefits in choosing your own buyer’s agent to help you with your property purchase. So let me ask you this, why wouldn’t you use your very own buyer’s agent?
