Philadelphia Real Estate Helpful News and Views : Why Buyers Need Their Own Real Estate Agent

Why Buyers Need Their Own Real Estate Agent

looking for houses
 

Many Buyers in the market place are looking at houses by calling listing agents from a sign or walking into Open Houses .  They do not realize these agents really represent the seller and ethically can only disclose limited information 

If a buyer really is interested in buying a house they should make an appointment sit down with an agent get qualified by a mortgage banker . This service is free .  It is a also a good idea to sign a contact with this agent to represent you in the buying process . When signing this agreement the agent has a fiduciary relationship to you much as an attorney would .  The agent then can discuss with you what you as a buyer  are comfortable spending a month . Once you are qualified you can  pin point an area .I personally like to go over the agreement of sale so there is not a panic situation when the buyer does find the right property for them .There are many papers to sign .

Then the fun begins .Your agent will not get emotional .Well I do get emotional but I do not overlook the important issues like age of the windows  leaks or old roofs and heaters .  When showing homes an experienced agent gets a feel for what you will like .  I always tell my buyers that they will get a feeling when they walk in the right house for them . They always look at me like I have four eyes . I remember a buyer saying how long does it take before I get that feeling . He was getting frustrated I answered sometimes it maybe the  first house we see but I have found that by the third time we  make an appointment to see houses we usually do find one  that is right for you .The funny thing is that the next house  we saw was  the one they purchased.

My point here is as a buyer why not have your own agent it is free . Your agent will look out for you .Give  you their professional advice . They will work for you . So why would  not use their wealth of knowledge that is available to you as a buyer . Someone who has experience to guide you in the right direction. Someone who is in your corner who will work for you and look out for you . Don't use the sellers agent .You need your own agent to represent you .

Hannah excellent reasons on why a Buyer needs to be represented by their own Realtor and the price is right :) :) :)

Posted by George Souto, Your Connecticut Mortgage Expert (George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages) over 4 years ago

Hi Hannah, 

I fully agree. It's the listing agent's job to put their seller's first, not the buyer.  Having a highly competent agent on the buyers side is good for them.

Hello Dan Tabit  I never understand when I hear buyers say No that's OK I call the agent on the sign . It is so much smarter to have an agent represent you .

Thanks you for taking the time to comment

     The greatest misconception that the Buying Public has is that they will "get a better deal" by contacting the Listing Agent directly. 

     Nothing could be farther from the truth!

Having an agent to represent you as a buyer is so important.  You've outlined it all perfectly here.

Posted by Chris Ann Cleland, Associate Broker, Bristow, VA (Long and Foster REALTORS®, Gainesville, VA) over 4 years ago

I am surprised at how many buyers want to deal directly with me on my listings.   I agree with Fred Griffin, they think they are going to get a better deal.

Signs still bring in the Buyers and I'm very thankful they call me Hannah Williams . I am always very careful to explain agency and fill out all 4 forms that describe agency when making an offer in ND.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Owner of Ward Co. Notary Services, retired Realtor (Ward County Notary Services) over 4 years ago

Fred Griffin  Oh as far as I am concerned you hit the nail on the head . Your comment describes many buyers who believe in something that is totally untrue

Chris Ann Cleland  I am so thrilled that you think so .Your opinion is very valuable to me

Sheri Sperry - MCNE  Yes you are correct and we as agents for the seller must be very careful what we say . Especially on the phone

Bob "RealMan" Timm  I am sure you are  but don't you wonder why this buyer has not previously  had representation .  Not all sellers are agreeable to dual agency

Thank you for your comments

I 100% agree with your thoughts on the subject.  But I recently had a deal with an agent who was blabby and actually helped my buyers and likely harmed the sellers position.  It was dreadful to watch, but I worked for the buyers and I passed along every tid bit she gave me.   It's really important for agents and consumers to understand and discuss agency.

You wouldn't share a lawyer with someone you are suing, why would you share a Realtor ? Great points and still a mystery to me why buyers want to go old school. Back in the day, we were all listing agents, there were no buyer agents but that evolved for a reason.

Hi Hannah

This is such important information, and it seems we need to keep repeating, since many buyers do not, perhaps innocently, understand how it works and the detriment of working with the seller's agent. The advantages are clear!

Most buyers do understand, after an explanation, how the system works. They do realize the importance of Buyer Agency. After coming to this realization, they then have the challenge of finding the right Buyer Agent for them. Typically, they choose the first agent they meet. The agent's challenge is to live up to the buyer's expectations.

Good morning Hannah. All buyers should be represented, transactions don't work as well when they are not.

Posted by JM Padron, CCIM, MRICS, CCIM, MRICS, Serving Mexico-USA Border (INTERNATIONAL COMMERCIAL ASSOCIATES) over 4 years ago

Don't see better price as a reason to saddle up another agent in the mix. But the need to let me talk to someone that has been to the property, has all the information and history. The buyer is busy, wants drive through quick and deals direct without the extra go between. Buyers are way way more savvy in small rural markets and have good impulse control, do their home work. They are connected and don't need an Angie's list to find the professionals. 95% of our sales are our own listings, both sides.

Posted by Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573, Northern Maine Real Estate-Aroostook County Broker (MOOERS REALTY) over 4 years ago

Good morning Hannah Williams ,

Well deserved featured post. Agency is local as is real estate proven by Andrew Mooers comments.  I do tend to agree with Fred Griffin "The greatest misconception that the Buying Public has is that they will "get a better deal" by contacting the Listing Agent directly. " That being said I do operate in Intermediary in our area but not on a regular basis. If someone is calling me direct to get a deal I tell them to call an agent for representation. If I've been working with a buyer and they are using me because they know I list a lot of property in my market area they are aware they could be purchasing one of my listings and understand my status changes to Intermediary on my listings. Often sellers hire me hoping I will also bring the buyer.

Posted by Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR, Serving Buyers & Sellers in NW Austin Real Estate (Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899) over 4 years ago

I agree. Buyers should really have someone on their side. Contacting the listing agent does not do that.

We can come up with many reason why a buyer should their own representation!!!

Use their wealth of knowledge that is available to you as a buyer, has experience to guide you in the right direction, in your corner. You need your own agent to represent you .

Posted by Sham Reddy CRS, CRS (H E R Realty, Dayton, OH) over 4 years ago

Hannah, I had this experience this past weekend , when I was writing  a offer for a building lot and added an addendum with 7-8 contingencies. A typical builders agent would not have volunteered ANY of them to a potential buyer ! Buyers need REPRESENTATION period !

What does anyone know about anything? When it comes to Real Estate, you are going to have to counsel with a savvy agent at some point. Get to that point!

Posted by Richie Alan Naggar, agent & author (people first...then business Ran Right Realty ) over 4 years ago

Having a buyer agent in a new market place is very efficient. I see comments where a savvy buyer knows what they're doing without a buyer agent but this is only if you know the area and the process of buying extremely well. Hopefully after doing a direct transaction with the seller or seller's agent you would have saved enough to make it worth it. In my experience the sellers or their agent want to keep the savings and not pass them all to the buyer.

Posted by Athina Boukas, Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) (Virginia Capital Realty) over 4 years ago

Yes indeed. Having someone working just for you with your interests in mind is going to bring the best results. The seller's agent cannot really be impartial.

Posted by Jane Peters, Los Angeles real estate concierge services (Home Jane Realty) over 4 years ago

Robert Vegas Bob Swetz  I am glad you enjoyed my post

Ed Silva  I do not think most buyers understand this

Tammy Lankford  Today I had continuing education 8 hours and it amazes me how little some agents know .We read test cases and decided if they were in violation of the code of ethics .. You would be surprised of how many agents forget who they work for .

  Yet so many buyers do not take advantage of this service that is provided to them for FREE.  I remember when everyone worked for the seller and the days of Buyer Beware . Today buyers do not have that fear  They can be represented

Thank you for your comments

Great post, Hannah. As I always say to buyers "the seller has representation, why shouldn't you?"

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Realty) over 4 years ago

Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor  What a great point ! Mystery indeed and a lawyer would cost quite a few dollars .... Why not hire a Real Estate Agent to work for you and represent your interests 

Jeff Dowler CRS  This is why the BUYERS AGENT was created  . The buyer does not seem to understand that when they walk in that Open House that agent is working for the seller and so is the agent they call off the sign .

Laura Cerrano I  believe information is the key if you want a Dual you must play fair .

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Call 631-805-4400 (c)  Well they are in for a big surprise because by using the Dual Agent  they now have a negotiator and not a fighter .  What say you ?

Thank you for taking the time to comment

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) over 4 years ago

Richard and Jean Murphy  Do you really think so ?  I do not think buyers really  know how the system works . I think most of the time the public knows you use a Real Estate Agent to buy a house but I don't think they understand representation. That is my humble opinion

Joe Petrowsky The same thing with mortgages . Buyers know they need one but I want to make sure they go to someone who will give them good service and look out for their interests . Someone like you .

JM Padron, CCIM  I agree with you plus interviewing  an agent to see if they are a good fit . if you are uncomfortable with this agent or perhaps they pass you off to their assistant  . This agent may not be the right agent for you .

Thank you for your input it is important to me

Andrew Mooers  I have done many a dual agency transactions.They have turned out fine .  If someone knows the want to buy a house ,condo or investment property  why  not seek out their own representation first . This way their financing everything is lined up . Personally I think buyers are in a much better position . This is my humble opinion

Dorie Dillard  The only person who is going to save money is likely to be the seller as the seller is the person paying the commission . We are ethical agents so we will not cross the lines or jeopardize our good reputations  for a few dollars more .How silly for people to think so . Then again that is what makes the world go round

Kat Palmiotti  Representation is free . Choose a local agent to work for you . They will help you find the house of your dreams at no extra cost to you

Thank you for your comments

Michael J. Perry  You are so right !

Chris Lima  I don't understand why buyers don't see this . Buyers representation was created for them . There was a time we only represented the seller because they paid the commission

Hannah, excellent post. I had a call from a buyer who had been trying calling the listing agent on the property and never got a returned call. I got the lead, called immediately and said that the listing agents represents the seller, and you need your own representation...let me represent you!

Posted by Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor®, Lewisburg WV, the go to agent for all real estate (Vision Quest Realty) over 4 years ago

I agree, except a problem in finding an agent to represent the buyer can sometimes be difficult when you're talking about a property where the commission will be very small.  For example, I have a brother interested in placing an offer on a particular vacant lot in the Smoky Mountains area.  The problem is that it's listed for about $20K and I've tried contacting an agent on his behalf (that is not the listing agent or the brokerage the L.A. works for)... she is even a member here on AR.  I'm not even asking for a referral fee due to the low price.  No luck.  Followed up with her (actually spoke WITH her twice) and still no response from either her or any of her associates.  Low commission amount sometimes tends to = having to work with the listing agent because no other agent finds it worth their time.  I've noticed on my MLS that the really low-priced listings are very often sold by the the listing agent.  These buyers find it difficult to be represented by another agent.

Great post, Hannah. I just don't get why buyers feel they need to 'wing it' or use the listing agent. I guess it's a matter of educating the buyers, and this post will do just that. 

Posted by Debbie Laity, Your Real Estate Resource for Delta County, CO (Cedaredge Land Company) over 4 years ago

Some folks like to stumble around on their own, at least early in the home buying process. The smart ones figure out that they're better off with someone on their side, especially if it costs them nothing.

Richie Alan Naggar Buyers should be represented by an agent that is why buyer agency was created .

Eric Kodner  I have seen this behavior so many times and received calls from buyers insisting they do not need representation and arrogantly just insisting I  should just drive over and show them a house . Their information was none of my business . They were just looking .

Then the smart ones who are serious make an appointment to come into the office with proper documentation and we are on our way

Recently had a chance to convey this very information to one of my buyer clients when she went around me and directly to the Listing Agent. The deal fell through and she is back with me and with a deeper understanding. Fact is there are a number of reasons buyers do this and one being the advanced technology of the day...the material is at their fingertips and they want immediate answers and results. Good post, Hannah Williams

Jane Chaulklin-Schott  Buyers have this misconception in their minds that they will receive a better price if they buy through they listing agent . The listing agent is a negotiator walking a fine line of fiduciary duties .

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, Broker, Tacoma Washington  There was a time all agents worked for the seller .  Buyer agency was created so the buyer could obtain representation and  the term Caveat Emptor  Buyer Beware would no longer be necessary

Posted by Roy Kelley (Realty Group Referrals) over 4 years ago

Hannah, I totally agree that buyers should have their own representation when buying a home. It is certainly one of our largest financial purchases we will ever make and to not have your own agent is a mystery to me. I would never go to court without my own attorney so why make a decision as big as this wthout it? It is because they have been led to believe they will get a better deal by working directly wit the listing agent. They think they can just offer 3% or more less for the house and then have the listing agent reduce his commission. Little do they know the listing contract is between the seller and the agent, not the buyer, so they cannot reduce the commission anyways. Just crazy

Posted by Jim West, Our Passion Is Helping 1st Time Home Sellers (Real Estate Technology Partners) over 4 years ago

Will Hamm  I appreciate your support and glad you enjoyed and agree with this post

Roy Kelley I hope many buyers have the oppurtunity to read this post

Jim West  Excellent analogy . People would not go into court without individual representation .Why go into a home buying transaction without buyer representation especially when it is not costing you . Find an agent that you feel you trust and you can be on your way . Start the buying process at the beginning not in the middle
