Buyer's Agent

Buyers Do Pay Commission

Commissions "earned" by Buyer Agents are generally thought of as "paid from Seller's funds" when in fact, they are only made possible courtey of the funds that a Buyer brings to the table. Therefore, the REIDC team feels that the Buyer is the most important part of the transaction, and we act accordingly.

What Do Our Buyers Get?

  • Presence - The basic availability to spend whatever amount of face-time needed for your team to learn what will and will not work for you.
  • Knowledge - Hyper-awareness and experience in your target location.
  • Expertise - Knowing the difference between a Hot-Buy and a Stand-By.
  • Fiduciary - Taking action, in any given circumstances, which will best serve your interests.

How Do You Decide?

  • Record Matters - A Buyer Agent's record of success isn't nearly as available for public consumption as that of a Listing Agent. Ask for a list of homes sold to Buyers.
  • Ask for real-time references and reach out to those Buyers for their experience and perscpectives. If there's a moment's hesitation, you've not found your agent.
  • Interview - How could you make such an important decision without first knowing if you and your partner are the right fit?

Six Questions for a Potential Buyer Agent:

  1. How much will it cost me to work with you?
  2. How much actual time should I expect to be spending with you?
  3. Do you have a pulse on my specific georgraphical target areas?
  4. How many "off-market" transactions have you been a part of in the last 12 months - either with your own listings or another Broker's?
  5. How many buyers have you represented in the past 5 years?
  6. Aside from online reviews, do you have any Buyer Clients who would be willing to speak with me about their experience working with you?
