Do I Need to Use a Realtor to Purchase a Home?

You do not need to use a Realtor to purchase a home.  You can call the number on a yard sign or internet listing, set up a showing, and make an offer on a house without using the services of a Realtor.

But should you?

In the scenario above, the seller will have professional representation from a realtor.  When you call the number off of their yard sign or internet listing, you are calling and speaking to the seller’s agent.  The seller’s agent represents the seller’s best interests in the sale of their home.  They are paid by the seller and work for the seller to get their home sold for top dollar.

Not only will the process of finding a home by calling listing agents be cumbersome and time consuming, you are not represented in all aspects of the transaction.

How much will it cost me to use a Realtor?

To purchase a home with a buyer’s agent, the cost to you is NOTHING!  That’s right…it’s FREE to use a Realtor to purchase a home.  This is true in purchasing a resale home or a new construction home from a builder.  The seller or builder pay the buyer’s agent’s commission, so it will not cost you a cent.  In fact, it will probably end up saving you money, and it will definitely end up saving you a considerable amount of time.

It’s best to protect your interests in the largest purchase that you will be making.  Use a professional Realtor and make sure that you are being represented professionally throughout the process of buying your home.
