Why use an Accredited Buyer's Agent to Represent you?

Why use an Accredited Buyer's Agent to represent you in today's market?  I hear that question quite often in today's buyer's market. The fact is, the average buyer, and especially the First Time Home buyer has no clue how REALTORS® work, or what Agency representation is all about.  Agency is more than just showing buyers properties and filing out all the paperwork for the sales transaction.  It is a fiduciary duty to our clients, which says we must place our client's interests ahead of our own. We must take confidentiality serious, and abide by the Code of Ethics and Standards for a Real Estate Professional.  Therefore, a Buyer's Agent not only speaks for his client, but he is a guide from contract to close who is loyal, truthful, honest, and honors the client's confidentiality.  

Purchasing a home without representation can possibly be the biggest financial mistake a buyer can ever make. For many buyers, purchasing a home is the most important purchase in their life. Why would you ever want to do it alone, without any advice from an expert, a real estate professional? Remember a client is a consumer, who has signed and entered into a written representation agreement with a real estate agent. Without a written agreement that defines the duties and responsibilities of the agent and buyer, the buyer is still a consumer, who is not protected as a fiduciary. That agent, in the state of Texas, would legally be representing the seller without a written Buyer's Agency Agreement.  

Any agent who has earned the ABR® designation has received special training and courses in working with buyers in an agency relationship.  They are trained to listen and to understand the buyer's needs, since it is all about serving the needs of the buyer, and meeting all their expectations.  So why not let an ABR® assist you with your home buying purchase in this buyer's market? In most situations, it will not cost the buyer a fee, since the agent's commission is often paid by the other Broker, the listing Broker, or the new home builder.
