TO USE A BUYER'S AGENT
Many buyers work directly with listing agents, feeling that they have a broad enough understanding of the market and available properties that they will be able to help them find their dream home. The only challenge is that listing agents are intermediates. It is one of their responsibilities to connect buyers with homes, but they are far more invested in protecting the seller’s interest.
Listing agents receive a commission based on the sale price of a property. This means that they are going to try to get the best deal possible for the seller, not the buyer. A buyer’s agent only focuses on you, the buyer.
Buyer’s Agents are Powerful Negotiators
Once you find the perfect property, you want to pay the best price for it. Listing agents are skilled in the art of price negotiation, but most buyers are not. This means that as a homebuyer, you’re placing your financial future in the hands of someone who is not entirely on your team.
A buyer’s agent is an individual who understands price negotiation and can advise you on how to make the best offer, what the property’s negotiating factors are and help you get the best deal on your new home.
You Have Nothing to Lose
During the buying/selling transaction, it is the responsibility of the seller to pay all fees and commissions. This includes the fee for the buyer’s agent. Meaning that the costs for your buyer’s agent are close to 0, it won’t get any better than that.

They Know What to Look For
When you are looking for a property, you probably have a pretty good idea of what features you absolutely want. A buyer’s agent cannot only help you find the right property, but also give you honest advice about a home that seems perfect from the outside but might not live up to your dreams further down the road.
There are so many small details that get past home buyers but are easily picked up by the skillful eye of a buyer’s agent. And especially in Mallorca where many properties are sold off market, it might be harder to find that one special property.
They’re Prepared for the Hurdles
Almost no home buying experiences go through without some kind of struggle. From appraisals and inspections to drawn-out price negotiations, something is bound to occur to set back the process and leave the buyer discouraged. A buyer’s agent comes to you already prepared for the potential setbacks and is proactive in their approach to getting you through them as quickly and smoothly as possible.
