Are buyer's agents needed?

Buyers surfing the internet and visiting open houses occasionally find the home of their dreams on their own. When this happens are they better off to enter a contract with the seller using the Listing Agent or contacting a Buyer’s Agent?

When securing the listing the Listing Agent signs a contract with the seller and agrees to sell their home for the most money with the best terms. A Buyer’s Agent, on the other hand, agrees to represent the buyer and help them buy a home for the least money with the best terms.

Purchasing real estate is a complex and major transaction with many details to be handled. A Buyer’s Agent will help structure an appropriate offer and negotiate the terms that are in the buyer’s best interests, which is a service that is truly a good value.
