WHAT DOES A BUYER AGENT DO?
Buyers who hire a BUYER AGENT receive personalized representation throughout the home-buying process that ensures a fair and ethical transaction. Buyers have an advantage when using a BUYER AGENT because the buyer’s representative seeks to protect the home buyer not the seller. A BUYER AGENT also helps the buyer by researching homes available on the market, suggesting a realistic offer price and assisting with the negotiations process.

A WORD FROM CHAD ON WHO PAYS THE BUYER’S AGENT FEE IN BC?
I do NOT charge a fee to buying clients for services as an Accredited Buyer Representative when purchasing Penticton and South Okanagan Real Estate. The fee’s paid from the seller’s commission. Now, even though the fee’s paid by the seller, the seller’s informed in writing I exclusively represent, the interests of my buying client. That, I, in my capacity as a Buyer agent, in no way owe any duties to the seller. Because of our buyer agency, my buying clients enjoy the security of knowing they have a highly qualified professional representing them, instead of the seller.
