The Advantage of a Buyer's Specialist
In the past, when you worked with an agent to find a home, the agent almost always was employed by the seller. That meant that while you and the agent may have worked closely together, he or she had a fiduciary responsibility to always act in the best interest of the seller. Now you can put the agent squarely and exclusively in your corner.
We can offer you the opportunity to have your own Buyer's Consultant. The concept is relatively new, extremely popular, and could save you thousands of dollars. My Team would be pleased to serve you in that capacity. That would mean we would enter into an agreement, become YOUR agent and work diligently to find your perfect home. My Team would be responsible only to you - not the seller. Under this relationship, we will be able to do all of the things listed below under buyer Agent.
Please Note: Real Estate fees are set with the builder/seller at the time the home enters the market. Therefore, when you work with an on-site agent, the builder/seller has already agreed to pay the fees for buyer's representation. If you do not exercise your right of buyer representation, you are leaving much of your advantage unused. When you work with the Linda Craft Team, there is never a charge for our service!
