Estate Agents work for sellers

Fact – Estate Agents work for sellers not the buyer

Question – Do any of the below statements sound like the selling agent works for the buyer?

  • As sales professionals, estate agents know how to go about closing a property deal. A good estate agent will read the buying signal and ensure that an offer to purchase is signed as soon as possible.
  • Estate agents are in a better position to negotiate on your behalf because they are not emotionally involved in the transaction. They also know which information should legally be disclosed during negotiations and which information can be withheld.
  • In the end, it must be remembered that the estate agent is the expert, and therefore it would only be right to expect them to get more money for your home. (than selling privately)

Of course Not! But all of these quotes are taken from websites of estate agents!
