Buying a home is no small matter. Besides being the largest financial transaction you may ever undertake, it’s probably also the most complex. There are many good reasons to work with a qualified Realtor —especially a trained professional, like myself, who has earned the Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designation, representing best-in-class buyer services.
The two most common forms of representation in Alaska are:
1.) The Listing representative (works for the Seller) – the Listing licensee of the home typically helps with staging, marketing and presenting the home to potential buyers.
2.) The Selling representative (works for the Buyer) – The selling licensee, typically has the buyers and brings them to the table for the transaction.
A representative for the buyer is more than just a licensed person capable of facilitating the transaction and making sure all papers are signed. They can literally save a buyer thousands of dollars if allowed to help from the start. Once you have already chosen a home without buyer’s representation, it may be difficult to introduce one so it helps to have one from the get go.
When you look for an ABR® before you look for a home, you’ll be served, not sold. Your interests become their interests. And you’ll be working with someone who has gone the extra mile by completing specialized training in delivering the best in buyer-representation services. Plus, a REALTOR® who has an ABR® Designation also has an established track record, with proven experience in representing the concerns of home buyers.
