Working with an Agent Vs. Working Alone

How an Agent Can Help You Buy a Home

Real estate agents are not just for home sellers. A relatively new phenomenon, buyer agency, will get an agent in your corner. The cost of a buyer agent will usually be included in the price of the home. In most cases, the buyer agent will split the commission with the selling agent.

A buyer agent has knowledge of the marketplace that will help you get a fair price for your home and has access to the Multiple Listing Service, giving you access to thousands of homes for sale .

The buyer agent can also assist you when reviewing loans and financing options, according to the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents.

You'll usually have to sign a contract with your buyer agent, which will specify what you're looking for in a house, and will guarantee the agent a commission if you buy a house.
