Very often buyers don’t know that they can use the services of a real estate professional without paying a fee for their services since sellers traditionally pay all of the commissions. It just makes good sense for a buyer to be represented in a real estate transaction. If a buyer contacts the agent of the seller, the seller’s agent will facilitate the transaction, but they are committed to the seller and NOT working for you.
When you work with a Realtor in a buying capacity, 2 things happen: 1) Your best interests are now the sole responsibility of that Realtor. In fact, he or she is bound to give you COALD by definition of the Realtor code of ethics and he or she can be fined and/or lose their license if they fail to do so. COALD is an acronym for Care, Obedience, Accounting, Loyalty, and Disclosure. All of these acts as well as more are owed to you as the client. 2) Your Realtor is paid by the commission that the seller is paying to sell their home. Let me clarify, you do not pay your Realtor when buying, the person selling their home pays both the selling Realtor and the buying Realtor out of the selling commission. There are exceptions of course, but the Remarkable Homes Team will never ask you to pay!
