Lake Oswego Real Estate Your Right To Have Your Own Buyer's Agent

Have you ever walked into an open house and had that agent write an offer for you on that home?

Did you go to a builder's new construction open house and have the builder's agent sell you the new home?

When you called the listing agent, did you think you were getting a better deal because you had them write your offer?Copyright Betty Jung

Lake Oswego Real Estate Your Right To Have Your Own Buyer's Agent

In all of these cases, it does not benefit you as a buyer to have the open house agent, the listing agent, or the builder's agent assist you with your purchase.  In fact, in all of above-mentioned cases, those agents are representing the seller each and every time, and not you at all. Those agents do not have your best interests at heart but are working in the best interests of the seller.

It amazes me that many people still don't understand agency or what a buyer's agent is.  Most buyers are not even aware that if you are the buyer you have rights to have your own agent representing you regardless what a lender or a listing or on-site agent will tell you.

Many agents tout themselves as being a 'buyer's agent' when in fact all of us as licensed Oregon real estate agents can be your buyer's agent.

What's The Difference Between A Buyer's Agent And A Seller's Agent

Buyers Agent - has a buyer's broker agreement/contract with you and will assist you in shopping for a home.  Your Buyer's agent researches and previews properties that you might like, helps you get the best price and presents your offer to the seller.

The listing or selling agent, or another person holding the house open, has a responsibility to the home's seller, builder, or another person who owns the home.

When working with a real estate agent, it is important you clearly understand who that agent's primary client is and which party in the transaction they are representing.
