Why is a Buyer's Agent Important?

A real estate transaction is a complex process involving stacks of paperwork and a number of outside service providers and contractors.

 

As an experienced buyer's agent, I can guide you through the process, answering your questions and serving as your advocate. I will help you find the property that fits your needs, submit offers and counteroffers, suggest a handful of good property inspectors and other professionals, and provide all sorts of relevant advice.

 

With Aaron Jones, you'll have someone on your side, looking out for your interests every step of the way.

  

What are the costs involved in hiring Aaron Jones to help find your property?


As a buyer, you don’t pay for my services directly. Instead, the agents receive an agreed-upon portion of the listing agent's sales commission (usually about half), which is paid by the seller.

 

If you're thinking this structure works against you by giving a buyer's agent an incentive to let you pay more than you need to, consider this:

 

The increase in a buyer's agent commission on, say, a $5,000 to $10,000 jump in price would be only $125 to $250. I am engaged in the business full time and simply am not going to risk my reputation. Your satisfaction – which can generate referrals to your friends and family – is the lifeblood of my career.


TIP:

When seeking out a buyer’s agent, look for factors such as productivity, education and experience.  Look for an agent who understands your lifestyle. Make sure the agent knows the neighborhoods you're interested in, and can answer questions you'll have about the location.
