According to most buyer agency agreements, the buyer’s agent must do these things:

  • Protect their client’s financial information

  • Negotiate the best possible price for the buyer

  • Must disclose to the buyer if they are working with another buyer interested in the same property

  • Show all properties the buyer is interested in that fits their criteria and budget

  • Connect you with the service providers—inspectors, lenders, home warranty companies—to best suit your needs

The buyer also has some responsibilities to their buyer’s agent:

  • Buyers must work with their buyers agent exclusively

  • Buyers should never give personal information to any other agent

  • Buyers should not call other agents to see properties, even if they think they are saving their agent some time and effort

  • Buyers should clearly define their must haves and deal breakers to help their agent streamline the showing process

Home buyers are at a premium in today’s housing market. Buyers should interview agents just as seller’s interview listing agents.

Make sure the buyer’s agent you select is familiar the type of property you want to purchase, the area you want to purchase in and the particulars of your situation. An agent is only as effective as the information they are given. Clients relocating from one city to another require a different set of skills from a client moving within the same area, for example.

Buying real estate is a big decision. The best advice is to find a buyer's agent who will guide you through the local market conditions.
