A buyer's agent can be considered your personal home shopper. They scan the real estate listings available in your area and narrow down the options based on your lifestyle, taste and budget. They want to help you find the property of your dreams. And they help you through the thick parts - contract negotiations, walk-throughs, closing documents, etc.
The best part about hiring a buyer's agent? The seller of the home is responsible for their commission! Meaning you don't pay a dime for your agent's outstanding service. The reason the seller pays the buyer's agent is because they are trying to sell their home - they want agents seeking out their property and bringing in potential buyers.
So remember next time a property catches your eye, call your REALTOR® to assist you further. And if you don't have a REALTOR®, find one you know you can trust and who will act with your best interest in mind.
