If you are looking to buy a home call Realty Advisors and register with our home matching system and see the difference...

Realty Advisors believes  that the more a buyer knows and understands the smoother and less  stressful the buying process is. This overview should answer many  questions you have.


Who Works For Who

Routinely In a Real Estate transaction the Realtor represents the party  who has signed an agreement to sell their home, which 99 % of the time  is the seller. So you as the purchaser should be aware that Realtors have a  legal obligation to represent the Seller not you the buyer, and must  protect the sellers interest at all times. Brokers must deal honestly  with you and divulge all known material facts about the property, but  they may not give you any information detrimental to the seller.  Realtors must give the Seller any information they have on you, such as  you willingness to make an offer but will go higher in price if you had  to.



There Are 2 ways You Can Work With A Realtor As A Buyer 

Buyer Agency

 In this relationship we will  represent you the buyer as our CLIENT, our legal obligation is to YOU  not the seller. You can work with one of our Certified Buyer  Representatives to get you the right house for the right price. Costs  are typically paid from the sellers’ proceeds.  

Traditional Sellers Agency 

If you choose not to have your  own representation, and opt for traditional service wherein your  Realtor is working for the seller and looking out for the sellers best  interest.


Contract Negotiations
How do you make an offer on a  home once you decide on one. Some information and paperwork is necessary  to make an acceptable offer.

● A signed Lead Paint Disclosure (Filled out by Seller and Acknowledged by the Buyer Also)
●An  Agency Disclosure (Are you being represented by the  agent or is that  agent representing the seller. This must be in writing.)
●Purchase Agreement And Binder Check (Sometimes called a Binder. The check is a good Faith deposit usually $100.00 Dollars)
●A Pre-Qualification Or Pre Approval (From a Bank Or Mortgage Broker) 


Closing Costs
These are fees that are associated with purchasing a home 

and are costs to the BUYER
