Columbus home buyers have information at their fingertips, but buying a home involves more than browsing real estate websites. The truth is, without having your own Exclusive Buyer’s Broker representing you in the home buying process, you are at a disadvantage!
By the nature of the industry, most agents represent the seller when showing homes – no matter who owns the home, or what company holds the listing. In other cases, agents are “transaction facilitators” who offer no real representation to either the buyer or seller. Only an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent or Exclusive Buyer’s Broker provides Buyer-Clients with true fiduciary representation.
Unfortunately, many home buyers don’t realize what they’re missing, because they do not understand the significance of “fiduciary.” Here are 4 key benefits to having fiduciary representation. This is only a sample of what our Buyer-Client Service Standards contain!
1. Loyalty. We never place anyone’s interests above your own! No matter what home you choose, or who the seller is, we provide you, our Buyer-Client, with objective advice and expert guidance. We negotiate exclusively on your behalf to obtain the best possible price and terms for you. We never represent sellers, which avoids the conflicts of interest inherent in traditional brokerages.
2. Confidentiality. We never share your personal information in any unauthorized capacity. We never share your home buying motives, timetable, resources or budget with anyone else.
3. Reasonable Skill and Care. We make all reasonable efforts within our control to protect you from foreseeable risks. When necessary, we will recommend specific professionals for situations outside of our expertise. (For example, we are unable to provide legal advice, and will refer you to a qualified attorney for legal questions.)
4. Disclosure. We will explain local real estate conditions, as well as current real estate practices and processes. We will proactively share any material facts known to us that could affect your home buying decisions. This includes pointing out any adverse issues, flaws, or strong points about a home you are considering, objectively, without bias.
A traditional real estate agent cannot provide you with this depth of service and professional commitment. Having the true fiduciary representation of an Exclusive Buyer’s Broker is must!
As your Exclusive Buyer’s Broker, we serve your best interests at all times! Unlike real estate agents and brokerages who represent sellers, as an Exclusive Buyer’s Broker, we only represent you, the buyer, getting you the best price and terms with no conflict of interest at all times.
Understanding this distinction could literally save you thousands of dollars not only on the purchase price and terms, but also on seller concessions and home inspection issues, whether you are a first-time homebuyer or an experienced homeowner!
