MR. AND/OR MS. BUYER

WHAT I DO FOR YOU AND HOW I GET PAID!!

 

As a buyer you may be concerned about what your Real Estate agent is supposed to do for you and who is supposed to represent your best interests. Listings and on site agents normally represent the seller. As a Realtor and your agent, I abide by a CODE OF ETHICS that requires me to represent you the buyer, fairly and ethically as well as professionally.

 

I will be doing research based upon your description of your needs trying to find homes that most closely resemble your criteria. If your needs change please let me know. I will then alter my selections to accommodate the new circumstances. I will assist you in selecting a lender, type of financing, selection of inspectors and closing officers. I will also help you in prioritizing repairs and evaluating them. Once we have found a home I will do a market analysis and advise you in making your offer. I will write the contract for you and deliver it to the seller or their agent. I will also advise you during the negotiations.

 

Most prospective purchasers will find themselves out driving, see an OPEN HOUSE or a MODEL HOME and want to look. Should this occur I will be giving you extra business cards. This will keep other agents from being pushy or continually calling you. It will also protect my means of making a living. When you visit an OPEN HOUSE or MODEL HOME ask the agent on duty if it is OK to look around, tell them that I am your agent and give them one of my cards. Avoid giving them too much information. They do not need to know your last name, phone number, or how much money you have. Try not to seem excited even if you really love the house. If they ask a bunch of questions just tell them My agent will give you a call if I decide I am interested in this property. Then thank them for letting you look. Remember any information they volunteer. It may be helpful in our negotiating strategy.

 

If you see an ad or sign that interests or a home on the internet you please let me know and I will get the information for you. If I am not available and you decide to call yourself, be sure to let them know that I am representing you. If they ask to show you the property, please tell them no." Its not fair to use their time. If they show you the property, and you decide to buy it then there is a chance that they will become the agent to receive the commission and I most likely will not be able to represent you.

 

I WILL BE GLAD TO SHOW YOU ANY PROPERTY 7 DAYS A WEEK. I AM AVAILABLE 24 HOURS A DAY, AND I AM PAID BY THE SELLER.

 

I am setting aside whatever time is necessary to find you the home you want, but I do need your help in protecting my way of making a living. I will be by your side throughout the entire home buying process. I will become your friend as well as being your REALTOR.

 

If you have any questions please give me a call.

 

Your REALTOR,

 

Greg Smith

Broker, CRS, ABR
