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.

Beware the (I'll get your home sold in a week) agent

Beware the (I'll get your home sold in a week) agent in The

I hear this one all the time from prospects looking to list their house. "Well, agent xyz told us that if we listed with her, she'd have it sold in a week." This would fall into the category of "If it sounds too good to be true, the probably is." The majority of agents are not going to make this claim, but rather will give you an honest market analysis, inform you as to how weak or strong the market is, especially the market in which your home resides, and present the objective facts. A good agent will then lay out an effective marketing plan, where the majority of the focus should be on "online marketing". Be careful to not get caught up in empty promises, reduced commissions, and being talked in to lowering your price below market value (unless you must have a quick sale). The key to choosing a good listing agent is to objectively determine who is going to provide you the best opportunity to sell your home. Will your listing agent also aggressively work to find buyers, or will they just list your home and wait for another agent to do the work.
