The term “transactional” indicates a focus on the specific transactional aspects of the real estate process, such as handling paperwork, and facilitating the closing process. The limited service offering may mean that certain responsibilities typically handled by traditional agents are left to the buyer.

Flexibility

This model provides flexibility for home buyers who may want to customize the level of service they receive. It allows buyer to choose and pay for only the services they feel they need assistance with, rather than paying a percentage of the property’s purchase price. Limited service buyer brokers often step in when a buyer has already identified a property or has a clear idea of what they want, and they primarily assist with the transactional aspects of the purchase. This may include handling paperwork, coordinating with the seller’s agent, managing deadlines, and ensuring that the closing process goes smoothly.

Seller concessions

Benefits For Buyers

Seller concessions have several benefits for buyers, including saving on upfront costs and having more money to put towards a down payment.

Seller concessions for repairs are also a benefit for buyers and are usually a good reason sellers might agree to concessions. Most people understand that if something is broken, it needs to be fixed.

For buyers, Seller concessions can make the total cost of purchasing a home less if they’re used in the right way.

Example:

Home Price $500,000

Buyer Broker 0
Seller Concession $15,000
Buyer Consult $500-$2000

Home Purchase $486,000

When buying a home, there are several key factors

to consider to ensure a wise investment.

Here are some important aspects to look for:

Price

Determine what you can afford to spend on a property. Consider your budget and financial capabilities.

Location

Evaluate the neighborhood, city, town, or state where the home is situated. Consider factors like safety, proximity to amenities, and future development.

Condition of the Roof

Check the roof's condition to ensure it is in good shape. A well-maintained roof is crucial for the overall integrity of the house.

Reliable HVAC System

Ensure that the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system is reliable and in good working condition. This is important for comfort and energy efficiency.

Plumbing Issues

Look for any plumbing problems, leaks, or issues with the water supply. Plumbing problems can be costly to fix and may indicate underlying issues.

Water Damage and Mold

Inspect for signs of water damage and mold. These issues can have serious health implications and may be indicative of broader structural problems.

Noise Level

Consider the noise level in the area. Check for any disruptive sounds or factors that may affect your peace of mind and quality of life in the new home.

House Size

Evaluate the size of the house to ensure it meets your needs. Consider the number of rooms and overall layout.

Property Taxes

Research the property taxes in the area. High property taxes can significantly impact your ongoing homeownership costs.

Homeowners Association (HOA)

If applicable, understand the rules and fees associated with the homeowners association. Some people prefer to avoid HOAs, while others appreciate the benefits they offer.

Amenities

Consider the amenities available in and around the property, such as parks, schools, shopping centers, and recreational facilities.

When a Buyer May Not Need a Buyer's Agent

A buyer may choose not to use a buyer’s agent in certain situations. Here are some scenarios where buyers might opt not to engage a buyer’s agent:

Experienced Buyers

For Sale by Owner (FSBO)

In cases where the property is listed as "For Sale by Owner," the buyer might decide to handle the transaction without a buyer's agent, as the seller is not represented by an agent either.

Investors

Investors have extensive experience in real estate transactions and are confident in navigating the process independently, they may choose not to use a buyer's agent.

Online Real Estate Auctions

Buyers at an online Auction the buyer might decide to handle the transaction without a buyer's agent, as the seller is not represented by an agent either.

Self-Reliant Buyers

Individuals who are self-reliant and enjoy taking charge of their decisions may choose not to use a buyer's agent, preferring to manage the home-buying process themselves.

It’s important to note that while it’s not a legal requirement to have a buyer’s agent, there are advantages to having one, including guidance, negotiation skills, and market expertise. Buyers should carefully consider their own knowledge, comfort level, and specific circumstances before deciding whether or not to use a buyer’s agent.
