Looking to buy a home? Don't play fast and loose with the biggest financial decision of your life. You absolutely need a buyer's agent to get you the best possible deal and to protect you. A good buyer's agent will provide you with detailed information on current listings, and they will inform you promptly when new listings hit the market. They can show you all sorts of properties that you may not have found on your own since they have access to all homes listed in the MLS, FSBOs, etc. When you find a home you like, your buyer's agent will research the seller and their property to discover any problems or issues that might influence your decision to make an offer. They will advise you on how to make the best offer, and they will protect your best interests during negotiations. A buyer's agent will tell you any information that they receive from the seller that may be to your advantage, they will find and disclose the weaknesses and strengths of the property, and they can provide you with recommendations or inside knowledge of which you may be unaware.
