Exclusive Buyer Agent

Anyone considering Dayton Ohio area real estate of any kind, be it a home, condo or land to build your dream home, needs to consider hiring their own exclusive buyer agent. Here’s what some of our clients say about their home buying experience.

Some Reasons to Consider an Exclusive Buyer Agent

  • Only an Exclusive Buyer Agent (EBA) can GUARANTEE to negotiate on your behalf.
  • Only an Exclusive Buyer Agent can GUARANTEE to represent you in your real estate purchase.
  • The job of an Exclusive Buyer Agent is to get the BUYER the lowest price on the best terms.
  • An Exclusive Buyer Agent has a legal and ethical obligation to put the buyer’s interests first, at all times!
As your Exclusive Buyer Agent, Buyer’s Corner Realty will help you find the right house in the Dayton Ohio area real estate market, at the right price. The listing (or selling) agent can not do this. They are obligated (by law) to represent the best interest of the seller, and negotiate to get the highest price they can for a property. Often times, traditional real estate agents are even offered a bonus that you, the home buyer, would never know about. An Exclusive Buyer Agent will never accept any bonus from a seller.

Because an Exclusive Buyer Agent only represents buyers and does not have in-house or company listings, a seller is always unaware of the price buyers are willing to spend during the negotiation process, giving the negotiating advantage back to the buyer. For this reason alone, it is not at all uncommon for a homebuyer to save thousands of dollars during the critical negotiation process when they have an Exclusive Buyer Agent representing them.

An Exclusive Buyer Agent will help you choose the right lender, and will counsel you on reasons for getting pre-approved before you make an offer on any property.

An Exclusive Buyer Agent will help you find a qualified home inspector who will treat you as their client and not as a customer.

Exclusive Buyer Agent Frequently Asked Questions

When it comes to an Exclusive Buyer Agent and buying Dayton Ohio area homes (or any other Dayton Ohio Metro area real estate), there are several questions everyone should want to know the answers to. We have compiled those here for your review. If we have failed to answer a question you may have, please contact us and ask your specific questions. We’ll be happy to respond to your inquiry.

Q: Won't it cost me more to use an “Exclusive Buyer Agent” than a traditional agent?
A. Not at all. In fact, in most cases, through our multiple ways for helping you negotiate the best possible price, terms, rates, and closing fees, we’ll actually end up saving you money.

Q: Can an Exclusive Buyer Agent represent me if I buy a “For Sale By Owner” property?
A. Yes. Your Exclusive Buyer Agent discloses to the seller that he or she is representing the buyer and normally the seller is receptive to paying our fee.

Q: Why would an Exclusive Buyer Agent work for a better price for the buyer if the agent is working on commission?
A. In the usual commission split between a broker and an agent, a $5,000 difference in price only results in a minimal difference in the commission the agent receives. Good will and word of mouth advertising are much more valuable to Buyer’s Corner Agents, not to mention the agent’s legal obligation to represent the buyer’s best interest.

Q: Some agents say they can represent both me and the seller. How can this be?
A. You be the judge. If you were selling a home, would you want to list it with an agent who represents the buyer? Of course you wouldn’t, no more than you would want to be put in a position of having to divulge your personal finances to the agent representing the seller. What buyers usually don’t understand is that when an agent shows a buyer any home listed with that agent’s firm, that agent, or his or her firm, is obligated to protect the interest of the seller. You also must be careful never to fall into a dual agency situation!
Q: Can an Exclusive Buyer Agent tell me if I am paying the right price for a home in the Dayton Ohio area?
A. Your Exclusive Buyer Agent can research previous sales to determine the value of a particular home in a given neighborhood in the Dayton Ohio area, or any of the many other areas we serve. Completing a competitive market analysis will help determine the price you should pay.
Q: Does Buyer's Corner Realty have access to all resources like the Multiple Listing Service?
A. Absolutely yes, and even more! We belong to the Dayton Ohio area MLS, so we can show you homes for sale in the Dayton Ohio area listed with this service. In addition, since we represent you, and never sellers, we regularly show homes that are “for sale by builder“ and “for sale by owner.“
Q: Isn't the agent who shows me homes always representing me by law?
A. Not necessarily! Not unless you have a written Agency Agreement. Agents who list property normally enter into a signed contract with the sellers to represent them in the sale of their property. This same contract may permit the listing agent to use “sub-agents” to help secure a sale. Unless you have a written Agency Agreement with a real estate agent promising to represent only YOUR best interest, you may find yourself working with an agent who is obligated to act in the best interest of the seller.
