Want to know why it is best for a buyer to use a Buyer's Agent?.

So if you have been thinking about buying a home and you have been driving around the Jacksonville area looking at homes, you may have called a number on a For Sale sign for more information or at least thought about calling.

When you call the phone number on the yard sign - you are calling the Seller's Agent - is this a good decision?

1) There are several reasons why calling a Seller's Agent not be a good decision for a buyer?

  • The Seller's Agent represents the seller and it is their duty to get the best deal for their seller
  • They will tell the seller all that they learned about you, the buyer, that would enhance the seller's negotiating position
  • Their primary interest is selling the homes of their sellers, not helping buyers
  • They will highlight positive aspects of home and material facts, but will not mentioned negative aspects
  • They will protect the seller's interest by not suggesting other homes that may be a better choice.
  • They will initiate negotiating strategy that will favor the seller's position
  • Offer to Purchase will be written to protect seller, not buyer
  • Financing will be directed to protect seller's interest
  • Negotiation will be on behalf of the seller - to protect the seller's interest
  • Follow up after the contract is signed to solve any problems will be with the seller's interest as primary 
  • Since their primary focus is on their seller's listing, they are not likely to spend time finding a buyer's dream home elsewhere
