Lead In: Using The Right Agent Can Make Buying Or Selling Painless

Find a Real Estate Agent Who Meets Your Needs

Buying a house is an incredibly complicated procedure, and the services of a good real
estate agent or REALTOR® can make the process much easier. To find a real estate agent
that meets your needs, you need to know what services you can expect. Is your real estate
agent a good match for your needs? Do you want to find a real estate agent who is also a
REALTOR®?

What You Should Expect from a Real Estate Agent

Find a real estate agent who is aware of local market conditions, neighborhood profiles,
local tax laws, school zoning, crime rates, and any other information that helps you decide
where and when to buy. Find a real estate agent who also knows how to find financing for
your purchase.

A real estate agent acts as a go-between for the buyer and seller. Most real estate agents
work evenings and weekends as well as throughout the day, and work on-call to better
serve their clients.

Find a real estate agent you’re comfortable with. Look for an agent who is willing to listen to
you and ask questions to learn more about your needs. A good real estate agent is willing to
inform you if your house goals don’t match your financial assets and provides you with an
accurate picture of your buying power.

Is Your Real Estate Agent a REALTOR®?

All real estate agents must meet state-regulated licensing requirements, but not every real
estate agent is a REALTOR®. A REALTOR® is a real estate agent who is also a member of
the National Association of Realtors.

As a member of the association, the REALTOR® must abide by a strict code of ethics. This
includes a requirement by the REALTOR® to treat both the buyer and seller with complete
honesty.

Only a member in good standing with the National Association of Realtors has the right to
advertise himself or herself as a REALTOR®. A REALTOR® is also expected to have a more
complete knowledge of real estate than a standard agent, and can often access information
unavailable to agents who aren’t registered as REALTOR®.

Lead In: A Buyer's Agent Represents The Buyer's Best Interests

Using a Real Estate Agent in Home Buying

There was a time when a real estate agent primarily represented the seller. The real estate
agent would help with home buying, but he or she always gave the seller’s interests first
priority. This gave the seller an advantage over home buyers.

Today, house-hunters can find buyer’s agents: real estate agents committed to help the
home buyer find the house they want and get the best possible deal.

The Real Estate Broker

A real estate agent works through a broker. The broker is an independent organization that
sells houses. The agent works with the broker on a contract basis. If you see a house you
wish to buy and contact the broker about that specific house, be aware that the real estate
agent assigned by the broker will represent the seller. This is in the best interest of both the
broker and the seller. Often brokers handle house inspections, financing, and insurance.

If you contact a real estate agent with the intent of having the agent find you a house, the
real estate agent is assumed to be representing you, regardless of any connections the
agent has to broker companies.

Real Estate Agent Differences

If you’re planning on buying a house, using a buyer’s agent makes sense. A buyer’s real
estate agent works to get you the home you want at the best possible deal, as opposed to a
seller’s agent, who is concerned with getting the best price for the property. A buyer’s real
estate agent can be expected to:

[Begin list]
- give you confidentially and loyalty
- calculate the market value of the house compared to the seller’s asking price
- tell you about the house owners and why they are selling
- take your personal needs into account
- assist you throughout the home buying process
- have professional home buying certification.
[End list]

A buyer’s real estate agent should be willing to provide you with a house’s drawbacks as
well as its advantages. The agent should help you decide on an offer, and advise you on
real estate contracts during your home buying experience. [link to buying-contract-
negotiation page]
Finding the Right Buyer’s Real Estate Agent

Home buying is complicated, so you need to be comfortable with your real estate agent.
Take the time to interview a prospective agent. Asking the following questions may help you
decide if the real estate agent is right for you.

[Open list]
What real estate broker are you affiliated with?
Does you sell houses as well as help with home buying?
What types of property are you familiar with?
What’s the average cost of purchases made through you?

Do you handle arranging house inspections, house appraisals, and insurance?

Lead In: How Should You Negotiate With Your Real Estate Agent?

Real Estate Contracts: Negotiating with the Buyer's Agent

A real estate contract is complicated: you need a good real estate agent to explain all the
details,and to let you know where and when negotiation is appropriate. Developing a real
estate contract begins when you finalize the price and terms with the home seller, and ends
when you take possession of your home. Along the way there are a number of factors to
consider. It’s a good idea to go over a standard real estate contract with your agent before
you view any houses; it’ll give you some idea of what to expect when you make an offer.

Making an Offer through Your Real Estate Agent

A real estate contract begins when you make an offer on a property. Your real estate agent
should provide you with a market analysis detailing the selling price of similar houses in the
neighborhood over the last year. This information should help you make a fair offer.

Your needs are very important here. Your real estate agent will assume you want to buy at
or below market price, and will bargain accordingly. If you really want the house, you may
be willing to pay the asking price, or even higher. If so, let your real estate agent know—
this will influence how he or she negotiates your real estate contract.

Seller Motivation Affects Real Estate Contract Negotiation

Find out, if possible, why the seller is moving, and negotiate a contract based on this
information. Retirees usually want as high a profit as possible, while urgent events (illness,
marriage, job transfers) may mean the seller will settle for below market value. Ask your
real estate agent how seller motivation may affect your offer and contract.

Sellers may be willing to settle for less if you have a preapproved mortgage, because you
come to negotiations with financing already secured. They may also be influenced by a
larger than needed down payment.

Considerations When Developing a Real Estate Contract

Discuss the following points with your real estate agent when negotiating a real estate
contract:

[Begin list]
- Who pays for transaction costs (brokers commissions, lawyer’s or escrow fees, etc)?
- Is there a mortgage escape clause (otherwise you are legally required to purchase despite
financing)?
- What appliances, garden fixtures, etc, are included in the price?
- Is the seller willing to offer concessions such as a roof or paint allowance?

Lead In: A Seller's Agent Represents The Seller's Best Interests

Selling Your Home with a Real Estate Agent and MLS

A good real estate agent is indispensable when you’re selling your home. Your real estate
agent should be able to provide you with comparable MLS listings, assess your home value
in relation to similar properties on the market, and get you the best possible price for your
home.

Assessing Home Value When Selling Your Home

Your real estate agent can help assess a reasonable home value when selling your home.
The real estate agent determines home value by comparing your property to other homes
on the market in the area. To do this accurately, it is vital that the agent possesses current
market prices and has a thorough understanding of the neighborhood.

Once the agent has determined your home value, you can discuss the list price of your
home. Most agents encourage listing prices that reflect the home value: listing too high
hurts your chance of selling your home.

Marketing and MLS Listings

One of the key responsibilities of an agent selling your home is marketing. The agent should
advertise the house and inform other agents that your home is for sale. Placing you home
with the MLS listings is important.

MLS stands for Multiple Listing Service. MLS listings are essentially a shared information
network that real estate agents and brokers can access. Not all agents can access MLS
listings.

Listing through MLS increases your chance of selling your home. Eighty percent of
properties are sold through MLS listings. Listing your home with MLS also improves the
chance of selling your home faster and for a better price than you would without MLS.

Negotiating a Deal

Your real estate agent can help you negotiate the best deal when selling your home. The
agent will help you evaluate a buyer’s offer and propose counteroffers based on your home
value. He or she will also help arrange appraisals, house inspections and help you create
real estate contracts. [Link to selling-contract-negotiation page]

Questions to Ask the Real Estate Agent Selling Your Home
[Begin List]
- Do you have experience selling this kind of property?
- How well do you know the neighborhood?
- Do you belong to MLS?
- How long, on average, do houses you sell stay on the market?
- How often will you provide us with updates on your progress?
- What percentage of the properties you sold over the last year were sold for the asking
home value?
- Can you provide client references?
- What is your marketing plan?

Real Estate Contracts: Negotiating with the Seller's Agent

When a prospective home buyer makes an offer on your house, you need a real estate
agent who’s willing to give you advice. After all, once the price negotiations finish, you have
to deal with the complexities of a real estate contract. Your real estate agent can advise you
on how to respond to an offer and help make the real estate contract as simple as possible.

What to Expect from Your Real Estate Agent

Your real estate agent should have already determined the market value of your house
before you put it up for sale. Your agent will attempt to sell your house for the maximum
profit. If you urgently need to sell, and are willing to settle below market value, let your real
estate agent know.

Once an offer has been accepted, you and the buyer will enter into a real estate contract.
Financing, house inspections, appraisal and land title searches must all be completed before
the contract is finalized. Your real estate agent should take care of most of this paperwork,
and keep you posted on how the contract is progressing.

Real Estate Contract Warning Signs

In preparation for your real estate contract, ask your agent to provide you with a standard
contract and explain it to you. That way, you’ll be better prepared to spot unusual buyer
demands in your own real estate contract.

When looking over your own real estate contract, watch for the following, and ask your
agent for advice on any of them:

[Open list]
- The purchase depends on the buyer selling their current home.
- An unusual amount of time is allowed for the buyer to get their financing.
- The down payment appears low.
- Penalties if you cannot move out by the specified date are assessed.
- You pay all the transactions or the buyer’s mortgage costs.
[Close list]

Working with a Real Estate Contract Offer

You have three choices when presented with a real estate contract. If the contract meets
your approval, you can accept and sign it. If you disagree with some elements of the
contract you can negotiate changes through your real estate agent. If the contract seems
suspect, and you aren’t happy with it at all, you can inform your agent to completely reject
the offer.

                     affects the actions of your real estate agent.


Lead In: A Buyer May Choose To Be Represented By The Seller's Agent

Working with a Dual Real Estate Agency

It’s not unusual for buyers and sellers to enter into a dual real estate agency relationship
with their real estate agent. Although this is not necessarily a problem, you should be aware
of exactly what a dual real estate agency is and what restrictions a dual agency places on
your real estate agent.

Defining Dual Real Estate Agency

“Agency” refers to the relationship that you, as a buyer or seller, have with your real estate
agent. A dual real estate agency is when the real estate agent or broker represents both the
buyer and the seller.

When the seller’s real estate agent is contacted by potential buyers who don’t have a buying
agent and ask the selling agent to submit an offer on their behalf, the agent is acting as a
dual agent. Dual agency can also occur when both the buyer’s and the seller’s real estate
agent work for the same real estate broker.

Dual Real Estate Agency Disclosure

For dual agency to be legal, the real estate agent must inform both parties, who must sign
consent forms indicating that they understand both the concept of dual agency and the
restrictions imposed on the real estate agent by this type of agreement. If either the buyer
or seller refuses to sign the dual agency agreement the transaction cannot continue. Once
all parties sign a dual agency agreement, the real estate agent is referred to as a disclosed
dual agent.

Restrictions to Dual Agency

Dual agency imposes some restrictions on a real estate agent. The agent is required to treat
both buyer and seller with fairness and honesty. To do so, neither party should expect the
undivided loyalty that could be expected from a dedicated buyer’s or seller’s agent.

The agent is required to provide full disclosure concerning the property to the buyer, but
cannot reveal confidential information about the seller. When the time comes to make an
offer, a dual real estate agent cannot advise the buyer on how much to offer, nor can the
agent advise the seller to accept or reject an offer.

Lead In: Selling Your Home Without The Assistance Of An Agent

The Home For Sale By Owner (FSBO)

Choosing to put your home up for sale by owner (FSBO) is your privilege, and many people
do indeed sell without using a real estate agent. However, before you stick a “home for sale
by owner” sign in the front lawn, be aware of the advantages and disadvantages of FSBO.

For Sale by Owner Financial Considerations

By choosing to advertise your home FSBO, you can avoid paying real estate commissions,
which often run as high as six percent of the final price. However, most buyers viewing a
home for sale by owner are aware that you won’t be paying real estate agent commissions.
This can lead to low offers which reflect that through FSBO you’re avoiding one of the costs
of real estate sales.

FSBO indicates you’ll be responsible for all advertising costs, and will have to handle home
appraisals, land title searches, and other paperwork yourself, all of which can cost time and
money.

Can Real Estate Agents and FSBO Co-Exist?

When you place your home for sale by owner, you can accept offers from real estate agents
to show your home, increasing your chances of making a sale. However, the real estate
agent expects a commission if the house sells due to their efforts. You’ll probably be asked
to sign a “one-time show” agreement, preventing you from negotiating directly with the real
estate agent’s client.

Showing Your Home and FSBO

Before you advertise your home for sale by owner, ask if you’re willing to commit the
necessary time and gain the necessary information to complete the transaction on your
own. Remember, a real estate agent is expected to work weekends and evenings, when
most people are free to view homes. You may have to show the house with little notice, as
people spot the “for sale by owner” sign and pull into your driveway without an
appointment.

Any home for sale by owner generates a certain amount of viewings by people who aren’t
really interested. Instead, they’re “just looking,” which can be a waste of your time. Also,
listing a home for sale by owner increases your chance of attracting potential buyers who
can’t qualify for the sale financially. You may not know this until well into the real estate
contract.
Real Estate Listings vs. For Sale by Owner

Consider how well you’ll be able to advertise a home for sale by owner. While real estate
agents can access MLS listings and other advertising sources, you will probably be limited to
advertising you home for sale through the local newspapers and through word of mouth. A
real estate agent is better placed to market your home than you are.
