Buying Real Estate: Why Use A REALTOR®

The majority of Sellers will be using a REALTOR®

Most sellers will have an expert representing them to ensure their interests are protected. If you are trying to negotiate with a Seller in this position, you will be at an unfair disadvantage. Get yourself a REALTOR® to ensure your interests are being protected.

As a Buyer, you will be receiving FREE representation

In most instances, the Seller will be paying the real estate service fees for your REALTOR® -  in British Columbia this is common practice. This means by hiring a REALTOR® you will be getting professional representation for free!

Buying real estate is one of the biggest financial transactions you will make in your life

Real estate transactions typically exceed $250,000. If you had a $250,000 law suit or audit on your hands, would you attempt to handle it without the expert help of a lawyer or an accountant? Probably not. Likewise, it would be foolish to consider investing in real estate without the professional assistance of a REALTOR®.

A REALTOR® working as a buyer's agent works to find the connection between homes available on the market and the needs and financial capacity of buyers.

Be comfortable and confident with the REALTOR® you are selecting as your business partner. As your agent, your REALTOR® owes you the duties of utmost care, integrity, confidentiality and loyalty.
