Real estate transactions are becoming increasingly complicated, as Missouri contracts and related laws are changing. It’s also important to consider the negotiation process; a Buyer’s Agent is a trained professional negotiator with the experience and insight to guide you to the best deal on the perfect home. How much should you offer? Should you counter? Are you comfortable with how to avoid big problems? These kinds of choices are much easier to make with a Buyer’s Agent advising you. The resulting deal will prove less stressful and much more financially beneficial.

 

What is a Buyer's Agency and why it is so Important?

A Buyer’s Agent is a real estate sales associate who strictly represents you, the buyer. This legal distinction is important to understand because agents for the seller conduct the majority of today's real estate transactions. A Listing agent is contractually bound to obtain the price and terms most favorable to the selling party. That naturally puts the buyer at a significant disadvantage. The listing agent works for the seller; a Buyer’s Agent works for you.  At The Holt Team, when you sign a Buyers Agency it means we’re held to a stricter code of conduct because we have a fiduciary responsibility to you, our client. 

 

What does a Buyer's Agent do?

Your Buyer's Agent starts with understanding your needs first and foremost.  Our service begins with getting to know your needs, preferences and requirements to focus the search on only the best properties for you. In addition we set you up a Listingbook account (yes it's for buyers too) so you can search the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) serving the metro St. Louis area.  Within your Listingbook  account, you will have access to the latest MLS Search Tools.  You can save and share your portfolio of homes with your realtor, friends and family.  Plus, you can search by specific neighborhood boundaries, search for homes in a given school district and much, much more.  You can count on your Buyer’s Agent to keep you up-to-date as properties come on the market as well as on their local knowledge about communities, local schools, market trends and more.  All designed to help you find just what you’re looking for.

Wanting to find land to build or to build in a new community?  Our agents know all the new communities that are being built in our area and then some!  Your Buyer’s Agent can assist you with your home selection, financing, and even construction details, in the event you decide to build. Your Buyer's Agent is the only source you need to make a successful move.
