STEP 3 | REPRESENTATION
Choosing the RIGHT Realtor®
One that will offer you professional advice as to preferred locations, styles, prices, trends, financing and how to handle the unexpected. They should have connections with Lawyers, Building Inspectors, Mortgage Representatives and many other Professionals. You may need these individuals to provide you with expert advise and protection when creating your offer to buy your home; they should also be skilled at the negotiating process.
Choose a Sales Representative that you are comfortable with. Someone you feel understands your needs and wants. There are many advantages to having a Realtor® work specifically for you in your best interests!
The Personal “One on One” Buyer Consultation
I will discuss and advise you on your personal situation. Before you start viewing homes, decide on your needs and your wants (i.e.: number of bedrooms, bathroom, garage, etcetera). I will use my experience and knowledge of the Market and Neighbourhoods.
Represents you, the Buyer and is working to protect your interests during the home buying process. The Buyer’s Representative has a fiduciary responsibility to represent your best interest by structuring the transaction to your advantage.
Represents the interest of the Seller and has a fiduciary responsibility to represent with care, loyalty and disclosure to the Seller.
Circumstances can arise where the Sales Representative represents the interest of both the Seller and The Buyer, at the same time. A Dual Representative has a fiduciary responsibility to both the Buyer and the Seller, and must act in the best Interests of both parties. The duty of full disclosure is waived in Dual Representation so as to remain neutral to the parties involved.
