This specialty designation is Similar to earning the CPA in accounting, or CLU in life insurance, a specialty designation in real estate shows that an agent is serious about serving clients!
Purchasing a home is one of the largest financial investments most Americans ever make. Though traditionally the Real Estate Professional was hired by the seller and acted in the seller's interest, a Certified Buyer Representative (CBR®) is specially trained to represent the buyers.
A buyer agent works to protect your best interests by providing complete and professional guidance to you.
When a relationship is created between the purchaser and the real estate agent, the agent must work in the buyer client's best interest at all times, thereby providing purchasers with the same level of representation traditionally given only to the seller. Here are just a few of the benefits you will receive from having your own personal representative when seeking to purchase property:
Confidentiality. The agent you hire to represent you will not disclose confidential information regarding motivation, price and terms, or anything else of a personal nature to the seller or seller's agent without your permission to do so.
Loyalty. The buyer's agent must work in the buyer's best interest at all times, even if it is not in the agent's personal best interest to do so. This means that the agent will virtually do for you what they would do for themselves in the transaction.
Full disclosure. The agent you hire to represent you will fully disclose any information gained from the seller or the seller's agent that could be used by you in the transaction.
A buyer's agent's job is to locate satisfactory properties for their client. Any limitations on this search will be documented in the buyer agency agreement.
As the buyer's agent goes through the properties with you, they will assist you with analyzing the properties and determining their strengths and weaknesses, allowing you to make informed comparisons.
The agent you hire to represent you in the transaction will do a market analysis on the chosen property and will provide you with an offering range for that particular property. They will then set a negotiating strategy for you to assist you in acquiring the property at the best terms possible for your situation.
The buyer's agent will complete an offer to purchase that is "buyer friendly" and contains the contingencies and protective clauses you need
