This Mortgage Tip is brought to you by the Jefferson Lewis Board of REALTORS® and Northern Credit Union. Last week, I compared Seller agents and Buyer agents. A Seller’s agent is the one who lists and markets the property. They owe loyalty and other duties to the Seller. Hi, I am Lance Evans from the Jefferson-Lewis Board of REALTORS®. Buyers may wonder why they need a buyer’s agent when there is a Seller’s agent. One of the main reasons is that the Seller’s agent’s first duty and loyalty is to the seller. They cannot advise a buyer on an offering price, negotiate on behalf of the buyer, nor work in the buyer’s best interests. A Buyer’s agent can do that and more. A Buyer’s agent coordinates details like inspections and mortgage commitment and acts as a liaison to all the parties to the sale. In short, the Buyer’s agent will help the buyer from first showing to closing. A Buyer’s agent will help you Dream It, Live It, Own It in Northern New York.
