The relationship between a home buyer and an Agent is a little like a marriage: it must be based on trust, mutual goals (to get you the house that best suits your needs!), and understanding. To a large degree, the home buyer entrusts the Agent to always keep their (the buyer’s) interest primarily. It is important that you understand that the Agent with whom you are working represents you.
An agent who won’t take fifteen minutes to help you understand what to expect when you’re buying a home isn’t much of an agent. Be aware: If you search for homes first and contact the Agent who has a particular property listed, that Agent will absolutely represent the seller–not you.
