Buying a Home…Should I use the Listing Agent or hire Buyer’s Agent to protect my interests?

Q. Is it a good idea to hire a Buyer’s  Agent to help me purchase my new home?

A. A Buyers Agent works for you and only for you. He/She is hired by you and is paid by you.  This agent, unlike a Seller’s Agent, can discuss pricing information with you and what a good offer would be; can negotiate on your behalf with all involved parties; and can give you advice regarding any and all aspects of purchasing a particular property.  The most knowledgeable Buyer’s Agents are the ones that have had specific training in that regard – don’t hesitate to ask about their qualifications.  Typically there will be no additional cost to you as your Buyer’s Agent will be paid out of the commission the Seller pays to their Listing Agent.
