3 Reasons to Use a Buyers Agent
So many buyers, even those that have bought before, don't know the extreme benefits of using a buyers agent when purchasing Yakima homes.
Here are 3 useful reasons to use a buyers agent.
1. Buyers agents cost buyers nothing! That's right. As a Yakima buyer, you don't have to pay a buyers agent a penny to work for you. Buyers agents get paid from the seller of which ever home you choose. They are not working for a particular seller just for that commission. They are ONLY working for you. They will get paid from the seller but they want you to find the right home. There is no hidden agenda when it comes to buyers agents. They work with your interest in mind.
2. Buyers agents can literally save you thousands of dollars. Many buyers may think that working with the listing agent on a Yakima home may actually save them money but more often than not, the opposite is true. A listing agent is working for the seller so naturally they want to get as much for the home as possible. A buyers agent is working for you, the buyer. They want you to get the best deal and will negotiate on your behalf, not for the interest of the seller.
3. Buyers agents can help you hold all the cards in a negotiation. This is extremely helpful when negotiating on a price. The buyers agent may know you can afford more than you offer and how much you love the home but won't disclose this to the listing agent or seller. This keeps the listing agent and seller in the dark about your intentions and makes them all the more willing to accept lower offers. If the listing agent knew you loved the home and that you could afford more than you are offering, they may not agree to a lower offer and raise the counter offer higher than you really hope to go.
These are just a few simple reasons to use a buyers agent when purchasing Yakima real estate. Since it's free for the buyer, can save you money and negotiate on your terms, why wouldn't you choose to use a buyers agent?
