What’s a St George Utah buyers agent and why will I need one? This question is sometimes best answered by another question, what is a listing agent? Most people understand that a listing agent is an individual hired by the seller to not only market and sell their home, but also offer representation to the seller during the negotiation and escrow period. The listing agent has the sellers’ best interest in mind, and their MAIN goal is to assist the seller and obtain the MOST MONEY possible for the SELLER.
Why is a St George Utah Buyers Agent important?
In the St George Utah real estate market, when a seller lists their home with the listing agent, they have worked out the commission which pays for the listing agent services AND the BUYERS AGENT services (A BUYERS AGENT WILL NOT COST THE BUYER ANY MONEY in a typical transaction). Back to the question, what’s a buyer’s agent? A buyer’s agent in St George has one goal in mind as well, to achieve the best possible price for the BUYER, keeping the BUYERS best interest in mind. A well trained buyers’ agent will be savvy to the current market conditions and understand comparable homes that have sold, which they can analyze and offer a range to assist the buyer in making an informed offer based on these market conditions. Buyers agents will also be aware of inclusions the buyer is able to ask for, a listing agent will usually not point out all of these inclusions as this will affect the sellers’ bottom line.
Remember, the listing agent is not attempting to get YOU the best deal; they are hired to get the most money for the SELLER. BUYERS AGENTS WORK FOR BUYERS.
Buyers agents will offer advice on properties, point out conditions that should be evaluated by a professional, and offer insight to neighborhoods that will be a good match to the criteria the buyer is searching for. If you are relocating, consider a buyers agent to assist you in your property search.
