Buyer Representation
Buyer Representation

In representing you as a buyer in your home purchase, I will be performing tasks such as:

  • assisting in your home search
  • providing data about each property
  • explaining financing options
  • creating a negotiation strategy
  • drafting and presenting offers
  • researching restrictive covenants, etc.
  • coordinating property inspections
  • coordinating property appraisal
  • conducting final walk-through
  • preparing for settlement
  • answering questions and providing counsel and guidance as needed

Virginia requires me to have a written agreement with any buyer to whom I provide any real estate advice or counsel. Towards the end of this packet you will find a blank Buyer Representation agreement for your review.

You should also note that it is possible that you will fall in love with a property where I already represent the seller. As we tour homes, I will tell you whenever I represent the seller of a property we are viewing. If you want to make an offer on such a home, we'll have two options:

  1. You can work with another Realtor in my office to fully represent you as a buyer.
  2. I can continue to represent the seller as a client, and work with you as a customer.

In Option #2 above, I cannot advise you on negotiations, repairs, or in a dispute.

Each year, I have multiple buyers who choose each option. Some buyers choose Option #1, because they want advice and guidance on pricing and negotiations. Some buyers choose Option #2, because they intend to make all negotiating decisions independently. If you decide you want to purchase one of my listings, we will discuss and determine a new game plan.

Of note - my compensation for representing you will be paid by the seller’s real estate company or by the seller.
