Relocating Home Buyers Seek Out Exclusive Buyer's Agents for Representation

quoteBecause of my work, I was required to relocate to Utah. As with my previous home search effort in Illinois, I decided to use an exclusive buyer agent rather than a traditional realtor. A traditional realtor normally cannot fully represent buyers since they are legally bound to work for the sellers. Also, from a pure business aspect, traditional agents have incentive to promote their own listed properties—and not other agent’s.


So, while on a business trip to Utah on March 28th, I met with my exclusive buyer agent for the first time over breakfast. Benjamin Clark of Homebuyer Representation, Inc. was very enthusiastic and he focused on my home buying needs with surgical precision. We discussed our search strategy and set goals for our house hunting trip, which occurred two weeks later.


When I returned with my wife and two children—Ben was ready. Based entirely on my selection of homes to view, he arranged a schedule that took us through more than 30 homes in two-days. priceA seemingly impossible task, the experience was actually enjoyable, and we found a home on the second day. At that point, Ben really went to work.


 With his expert knowledge of the Utah housing market, Ben helped us put together an offer that was fair, yet skewed to our favor—the home buyer—which the seller accepted. Not only was the selling price thousands of dollars under the asking price, it was also tens of thousands of dollars under the appraised value. In a sense, we were ahead before we even started!


 Today is May 15th and we will sit down to sign the closing documents on our new home. Thinking back, I know we made the right choice to use an exclusive buyer agent. Ben never lost sight of our needs and has stayed engaged at every step. Although we will not arrive in Utah for a few more weeks, I know the day we pull up to our new home, Ben will be there with the keys.


I have now used an exclusive buyer agent twice to purchase a home. In my opinion (based entirely on my own experience), exclusive homebuyer representation is the best and only option!
