Is a Buyer's agent needed when buying?  

If you're thinking of buying a home, there is big decision to consider.  Do you hire a buyer's agent or a transaction agent?  This one decision can make a huge difference in the results that you have when buying. Are you asking, "Aren't all agents the same?". No they are not. Many buyers don't realize how important it is to have a Buyer's agent and they later regret it. In today's market, you deserve to have an agent on your side. Treu Group Real Estate believes that buyers should have someone by their side looking out for them.  

How do I know if I have a Buyer's Agent?

Are you asking what is a buyer's agent?  There are 3 ways that an agent can represent you, single agent, non representative, transactional agent. A buyer's agent is the way someone can be on your side. Negotiating for what is best for you. Unless you have hired a Buyer's agent, you likely have a transaction agent. That means that the agent represents the transaction (not you). 

How do you know if you have a Buyer's Agent? 

  • A consultation was done discussing your needs and the process
  • An agreement was signed

If you don't have an agreement, you are not working with a Buyer's Agent. 

What will a Buyer's agent cost me? 

Most often, the seller pays for your agent so it is smart to have someone representing you. This is one of the rare cases that you can have someone on your side and someone else pays for it.
