Having a buyer's agent is FREE to you! In real estate, the commission is usually paid by the seller. So while having a buyer’s agent doesn’t cost you anything, they can save you money by negotiating the best deal possible for you.
It gives you full access to the MLS. As a member of the multiple listing service (MLS), your agent has full access to the searchable database of MLS listings. We ask the right questions to determine what you are looking for in a home and then we help find it! We can provide custom searches to find available homes that meet your criteria. We can also setup auto emails to notify you immediately when a new listing comes on the market that meets your needs. Sometimes, we can even tell you about new listings before they come on the market.
A buyer's agent will save you time. Why do something yourself when you can have a professional do it for you? A buyer's agent spends a lot of time previewing homes and staying familiar with the current listing inventories. This knowledge -- as well as the useful technologies that licensed realtors have -- will save you from wasting time previewing homes that don't meet your needs. Your agent will also perform a lot of the services that you otherwise might have to do yourself like writing offers, delivering earnest money, contracts, etc. to the title companies and lenders.
