Buyer/Seller Agent Facts

  • When you contact a listing agent regarding a property of interest, that agent’s loyalty is to the seller, not to you.

  • No fiduciary responsibility for your interests is provided during a home purchase unless you are also represented – by a buyers agent.

  • Listing/seller agents, being obligated to obtain all benefits possible for the seller, cannot provide adequate representation to you, the buyer.

  • Your buyers agent will not try to "sell" you on any home purchase.

Commissions

  • When using a buyers agent during your home purchase, you are not required to pay a commission, as we are paid by the sell

  • In Houston, real estate purchasers using a buyers agent may save up to 8% of the purchase price. Relocation experts state that many corporate clients now direct their employees to use buyers agents during a move.

  • Your only costs will be those normally associated with any real estate purchase at closing.
