Why you need a buyer agent representing you
When buying a Tredyffrin Easttown home, you need a local experienced Tredyffrin Easttown Realtor to represent you. This Realtor has a fiduciary duty, that is the highest level of care you can have, putting your interests ahead of everyone else, including their own. Most real estate transactions go smoothly even so they are still stressful and often the agents involved keep a transaction on track because of their actions. But when a transaction goes wrong it is hell. There can be lawsuits for everyone involved. Lawyers never understand agents who act as dual agents and explain it as would you use your spouses divorce attorney to represent you as well? How would you know whose interest the agent is putting first? You as a buyer, the seller or themselves?
We have represented many sellers and buyers in Tredyffrin Easttown real estate transactions but never at the same time. Our duty is to the person we represent. As a buyer we put your interests first, making sure your finanaces are protected, negotitation helps you acheive your goals, and that the seller is fufilling their duties and keeping you within the time lines laid out in the agreement of sale so their is no breach of contract. We are consultants, advisors but mostly we are there to support you and make sure your goal is acheived. As such we get paid a success fee, paid by the seller usually, but if you decide to buy a For Sale by Owner property where the owner is not offering compensation, we can structure the offer in such a way that our fee is covered by the seller as a seller assist.
