IT'S ALWAYS A BUYER'S MARKET TO ME!


3 most important words in real estate this year...

prior to 2014.....LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!

2014.....EXCLUSIVE BUYER AGENT!


As an exclusive real estate Buyer's Agent, I use my 15+ years of experience in the Atlanta real estate market to help home "Buyers" prevent surprises and find the best residential real estate properties for their investment. I help the Buyer answer mortgage questions; preview or show the Buyer homes for sale & help evaluate their pros & cons; negotiate contract terms (including price) in favor of the Buyer; monitor all needed home inspections; negotiate inspection repairs; prepare the Buyer for closing; and try to protect the Buyer from the “unknown”!"

Sales "price" isn't everything - Are you buying a Money Pit or what nobody else wants?

  • Will the property be hard to resell?
  • What are the "real" costs of homeownership?
  • Will the seller disclose "material" information to you?
  • Who will answer questions and negotiate in the "Buyer's" best interest?
  • Will your agent work 100% as an Exclusive Buyer Agent for your best interests?
  • Will the seller's listing/dual agent make sure the BUYER gets the very best deal for the BUYER?
  • How will you know "everything" about the house and neighborhood that affects your property or resale value?

    Do you think a seller is going to disclose "all" the negative features of their home and neighborhood? Without an Exclusive Buyer's Agent helping you identify the pros & cons of each home and get the right house at the right price and terms, you may buy a house that may "not" be marketable to most buyers or have more negative issues than positive features. If you use an agent that represents the seller, you pay all the commission to someone that "legally" works for the seller - not YOU! .....Why would you do that?


  • What is an Exclusive Buyer Agent and why is it important to a home Buyer?

    BUYERS without their own Agent dedicated to Buyers only (i.e., Exclusive" Buyer Agent) may not get all the information needed to make a good decision, or get the best deal! Real estate agents place their license with a Broker (i.e., ReMax, Keller Williams, etc,). The Broker decides to represent the best interests of only the Buyer (i.e., Exclusive Buyer Agent); only the Seller (Exclusive Seller Agent); or try to represent the best interests of both the Buyer and Seller at the same time. If you use an agent who represents Sellers, you may face a legal issue of either "dual" or "designated" agency where the agent is supposed to get the best deal possible for both the Buyer and Seller and yet both parties are equally represented by the same Broker.

    Does this mean the BUYER is completely represented and gets the best deal?

    YES, with their Exclusive Buyer Agent

    YOU can use your own Exclusive Buyer Agent to your advantage to negotiate the best deal using market knowledge and I'm here to give you that advantage! Visit my summary of Exclusive Buyer Agent services for more details how I can help.


    Does it cost you anything extra to use an Exclusive Buyer Agent?

    NO, and here's why:

    WHO PAYS THE BUYER AGENT'S COMMISSION?

    Exclusive Buyer Agents Protect Buyers!!!

    Sellers pay a total commission to any or all agents to sell their home (represented by the Commission Zone box above) whether or not they sell using their own agent. If more than one agent is involved, the total commission the Seller has "already agreed to pay" is split between the Seller's Agent and YOUR Buyer agent. Since sellers pay a total commission which is split between any agents involved, you don't pay any more for your OWN agent on new or used homes. Yes, I represent the BUYER's interests at NO ADDITIONAL COST to the BUYER!


    My Clients Deserve The Best Deal On Their Biggest Investment - Their Home!

    My Promise to Clients as their Exclusive Buyer Agent

    EXCLUSIVE BUYER REPRESENTATION: Jim Parker is an Agent who represents the BUYER - not the SELLER - to get the best deal (i.e., contract price & terms) for the Buyer including sales comparables, location, condition, other features and resale potential of property.

    CONFIDENTIALITY: Jim Parker will keep your personal information confidential and leverage off information about the Seller, property, or neighborhood to negotiate the best deal for the Buyer.

    LOYALTY: Jim Parker will not jeopardize the client’s best interest. It is important that the client is content & satisfied with their property.

    DISCLOSURE: Jim Parker attempts to ensure his client is informed of material information (about the seller, seller’s property, or seller’s neighborhood that may affect the value of the home) so the client is able to make an informed purchase decision.

    NEGOTIATE: Jim Parker performs a market analysis to make sure his clients never pay more than necessary for the home being purchased.
