Before getting into the details of what a buyer's agent does, let's first bust a common myth that some individuals fall for. Many times a potential buyer will simply call the number on the for sale sign. After all, the listing agent already knows all about the property and will be able to properly negotiate the deal, right? Wrong. The agent is actually obligated by law to negotiate the best possible deal for the seller. And since they receive a percentage of the selling price, it is safe to assume that they do not want to come off of their asking price. You really need a buyer's agent who is representing you alone, and your best interests.
