The benefits of using a Buyer's Broker
when buying a home in Colorado.
In Colorado, there are three ways real estate agents can
work with buyers. They can be a seller's agent, a transaction
broker, or a buyer's agent.
Most agents here work as transactions brokers. As such,
they simply put a transaction together. They cannot be an
agent or advocate for a buyer.
As a buyer's agent I owe full fiduciary responsibilities, duties,
and loyalty to the buyer. I work exclusively to give the buyer
every advantage in all aspects of the buying process.
No stone will be left untouched in finding properties for my
clients. Our Multi-list system covers all local listed properties.
My searches also include "for sale by owners," foreclosures,
short sales, and bank owned properties.
Information provided will include how long a property has
been listed, the pricing history and any prior listing and sale
information. When a client is interested in a property I will
do a market analysis to evaluate the pricing.
In recent years the Northern Colorado market has been
among the hottest markets in the nation. In addition, since
the recession there has been an extreme shortage of homes
listed for sale. That created a situation where we often have
multiple offers on a home, and many that are well above the
asking price. As you might imagine, that is a very difficult
market to deal with.
My years of real estate experience have given me excellent
negotiating skills, which I use to give my buyers every advantage.
I assist the buyer in investigating the property to make sure that
all issues are known. I will recommend needed property
inspections, and will negotiate in the buyer's best interests to
resolve any and all inspection issues.
I make sure that we are requesting the best title coverage for
the property, and any extra coverage that is needed.
Finally, I am there to review the closing documents, and make
sure that the closing goes as smoothly as possible.
