There are many reasons to use the services of an Exclusive Buyer Agent when buying real estate. Among them:
As an Exclusive Buyer Agent, the Clift Group will help you find the right house in the Orange County real estate market, at the right price. The listing (or selling) agent can't do this. They are obligated (by law) to represent the best interest of the seller, and negotiate to get the highest price they can for a home.
So why would an exclusive buyer's agent negotatiate the price DOWN on your behalf
when that means LESS commission for them?
It's simple. A good exclusive buyer's agent will more than make up for the tiny commission they lose by negotiating the price down for you in the future referral business you'll send their way because you were so happy with their service.
The listing agent is not going to do this for you. They can't! The listing agent has an incentive to get the highest price possible, and oftentimes, even a bonus included that you, the home buyer, would never know about.
Because an Exclusive Buyer's Agent only represents buyers and does not have in-house or company listings, a seller is always unaware of the price buyers are willing to spend during the negotiation process, giving the negotiating advantage back to the buyer.
For this reason alone, it is not at all uncommon for a homebuyer to save thousands of dollars during the critical negotiation process when they have an Exclusive Buyer's Agent representing them.
An Exclusive Buyer's Agent will help you choose the right lender, and will counsel you on reasons for getting pre-approved before you make an offer on a property.
An Exclusive Buyer's Agent will help you find a qualified home inspector who will treat you as their client and not as a customer.
It just plain makes sense to use an Exclusive Buyer's Agent when buying a home in Orange County.
