You can find a true buyer’s agent only at a firm that does not accept listings

Consumer Reports states, “You can find a true buyer’s agent only at a firm that does not accept listings.” The advantages of using an Exclusive Buyer Agent is that they avoid conflicts of interest by working in the best interests of the buyer and not the seller, avoid homes and neighborhoods likely to fare poorly in the marketplace, ensure the buyer does not unknowingly overpay for a property, fully informs the buyer of adverse conditions, encourages the buyer to make offers based on true value instead of list price, which can sometimes be overstated, and works to save the buyer money. A buyer agency firm commissioned a study that found EBA purchased homes were seventeen times less likely to go into foreclosure.
