Learn About Different Types of Buyer Agents
An Exclusive Buyer’s Agent or EBA is someone who is an expert in the buy-side of a real estate transaction. Just as you would see a cardiologist for your heart or would hire an electrician to wire your home, an EBA is a specialist in the real estate industry. Most NAEBA member EBAs have years of experience and have learned to strongly negotiate on a buyer’s behalf, what to look for when viewing a property, and how to overcome obstacles that a buyer may face along the way.
Exclusive Buyer’s Agents give buyers their undivided loyalty. Most real estate agents and buyer’s agents work in traditional brokerages that take listings. Because of that, they have an inventory that they must sell. In addition, if that brokerage brings both the buyer and the seller into the transaction, they get to keep the entire commission, making the transaction more profitable. These can be strong incentives to steer a buyer to one of their own listings. It also means that their buyer loses many of the benefits of hiring a real estate agent including negotiating on his behalf as well as the agent’s ability to point out reasons why the buyer might not want to purchase that particular property. Since Exclusive Buyer’s Agents must work in a brokerage that only works with buyers and never takes listings, a buyer can rest assured that the EBA will remain on their side throughout the entire transaction, getting the buyer the lowest price and the best terms possible.
