Why home buyers should hire a CBR (Certified Buyers Representative)

0 Comment

neil smiling1 (2)Buying a home is typically the single largest purchase/investment most people will make in their lifetime. This is why it is important to protect your interest by enlisting the help of a Certified Buyers Representative (CBR). Real estate salespeople traditionally are hired by and represent the seller and his interests, but a CBR represents the buyer and helps them get the home they want for the best price possible.

Having the right kind of help when you need it is priceless and a CBR can help the home buyer mainly in following ways:

  • Assist in locating properties that fit the buyer’s guidelines for price and style and home features.
  • A CBR will also assist in determining what the initial offering price should be and develop a strategy for negotiating.
  • Craft the offer and negotiate on the buyer’s behalf.

When purchasing a home the buyer should opt to have an agent working to give them the same due diligence traditionally afforded to the seller. Confidentiality, loyalty, and full disclosure are seen as some of the best benefits of having a trusted CBR in your corner. A little extra leg work never hurt either. You will find that an experienced buyer’s agent will look for homes that are not listed in the traditional listing areas including, for sale by owner, new construction, unlisted properties; as well as, foreclosures. You should also expect your CBR to provide a Market Analysis of the home and take great care to prepare a buyer friendly offer. These are only a handful of the many benefits you will receive when you hire a CBR so Don’t Do It Alone!

Buyers take note when purchasing a home and remember to always work with a CBR because in doing so you will find an incredible professional who will wholeheartedly represent you and your interests by offering you the same due diligence normally given to the seller. Take full advantage of the knowledge and experience that a CBR can offer. When you consider that more often than not, most or all of the fees are incorporated into the transaction or paid by the seller which means more money in your pocket. Now that you know all the benefits why not have the representation you deserve?
