How Does Realtor Benefits to the Buyer?


There are many obvious benefits to the buyer of using a realtor. One of the main benefits is that the realtor can act as an intermediary between you and the listing broker. The listing broker will probably not know you and therefore cannot exert any influence on you, or make an assessment of you that could compromise your negotiating position is an important strategic tactic that will benefit you.

Another advantage to a buyer is the opportunity for the realtor to access the MLS computer which can provide instant, thorough, and accurate information on properties that might interest you. Without an agent searching for you, you seriously minimize your range of selection and the prospect of concluding the deal at a price that is attractive to you.
