Buyer’s Agency. We have been protecting the rights of

WHAT IS AN EXCLUSIVE BUYER’S AGENT?

An Exclusive Buyer’s Agent is a Realtor who  works only for the buyer. They work in an office that never takes listings, so there is no conflict of interest to jeopardize the buyer’s negotiating position.  

Dual Agents

A dual agent represents the buyer and the seller in the same transaction. The Broker collects a double commission and the parties have no representation.

Buyer's Agents

Buyer’s agents are dual agents in disguise. They represent buyers one day and sellers the next. Buyer’s agents work for companies that represent both buyers and sellers (Re/Max, Keller Williams, etc.).

Exclusive Buyer's Agents

Exclusive Buyer’s Agents represent buyers 100% of the time. They work for a Broker who never takes listings or represents sellers. EBAs offer the highest level of representation available to home buyers.

Is Exclusive Buyer’s Agency right for you?

Are you an aggressive sales person? Can’t take “no” for an answer? Are you a fan of door knocking and passing out flyers in parking lots? If so, you definitely WON’T like life as an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent. We’re helpers, not closers. We treat our clients like we would our little brother or sister; we hold their hand and walk them safely through the process. Our job is to help the buyer purchase the home of their choice at the best possible price and with the best terms. Generally speaking, EBAs are great caretakers but terrible salespeople!

Most new Realtors are out of business in less than 2 years

According to the Department of Labor, the median real estate agent’s income in 2016 was $42,500. That’s gross income, out of which all their business expenses had to be paid! The bottom 10% had a gross median income of only $24,400.  Why? First, competition is fierce. The National Association of Realtors has 1.7 million members!  In any given city, traditional real estate companies have 50-200 agents competing for the same buyers and sellers.  There is no competitive advantage working for these brokerages, and new agents are generally destined to fail within their first two years in business. Second, the internet has created a much more educated buyer.  Historically, the real estate industry has catered to sellers, to the financial detriment of the buyer.  Today’s buyers know better.  They understand that they are entitled to proper representation. When given an option, buyers will always opt to work with an agent that they know will always be on their side. Wouldn’t you?

 

Is it smart to give up working with Sellers?

It’s brilliant, actually.  When you stop competing with the thousands of seller’s agents in your area, you become your city’s “go to” person for buying a home.

Do you want to be a small fish in a big pond or a big fish alone in the pond?

The truth is this: in any given real estate office, the vast majority of agents work with buyers, not sellers. These agents might list a home once in a while, but the bulk of their transactions involve buyers. See for yourself! Visit the website of any big brokerage in your area, and then check their agents’ production on the MLS. You’ll find that a handful of agents have 95% of the listings and the rest are working with buyers. Instead of making the very smart decision to specialize in buyer representation, they opt to “leave their listing options open – just in case.” They pay ridiculous commission splits, waste their time in sales meetings, work for free as their broker’s receptionist, and run around town wearing their “I sell houses!” pins, hoping to be approached by a buyer or seller in need of their services. Day after day, year after year, the beat goes on. The brokers get rich and the agents go out of business.

Chick-Fil-A makes a fortune selling chicken. LEGO’s doesn’t sell dolls or toy trucks. Yogurt shops don’t sell ice cream. It’s not necessary to be a generalist in order to make a great living in real estate. In fact, your odds of success increase exponentially if you fill a gap in the marketplace and become a buyer specialist.

The world doesn’t need another run of the mill Realtor, but homebuyers are desperate for Exclusive Buyer Representation.

Earn a great living in a respectable way!

It’s hard for buyers to trust that their Realtor is going to negotiate the best deal for them when their commission is based on the sales price.  To eliminate this conflict of interest, HelpUBuy America offers full-service and flat-fee pricing.  Our flat fee ranges from $5,000-$8,000, depending on the area, and the balance of the commission is rebated back to the buyer at closing.

Don’t confuse us with discounters!

To qualify for flat-fee pricing, our buyer/clients must agree to do much of the legwork on their own.  HelpUBuy America agents don’t spend hours driving buyers around town, and they don’t work all hours of the day and night.  Our flat-fee commission is fixed and our services are limited, and homebuyers LOVE it!  Of course, our traditional price-based commission plan is always available for buyers who don’t want or qualify for our flat-fee program.

Training, Training, Training

Big brokerages have been using training as a recruiting tool for years and the vast majority of new agents STILL fail within the first two years. The truth is that representing buyers and sellers is pretty easy. The hard part is finding the clients. If you’re spending time in “training” classes to learn anything other than how to spot defects in a home or how to negotiate a good deal, you’re wasting your time. We don’t offer you classes on goal setting or try to motivate you to knock on doors or make cold calls.  That’s the kind of thing you have to do when you’re selling a service that no one wants. You need to come to us self-motivated.  You’ll have to be comfortable working independently. When you do, we teach you how to do two things, and two things only. First, we teach you how to protect the rights of homebuyers, from choosing a home, to shopping for financing and negotiating a deal. Second, we show you how to market yourself as a homebuying expert. That’s it!

Endorsers of Exclusive Buyer’s Agency

Exclusive Buyer Agency is endorsed by all the consumer good guys like Dave Ramsey, Ralph Nader, Jean Chatzky and Suze Orman. Even the Department of Justice recommends that buyers hire an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent rather than a traditional agent. It’s great to be on the receiving end of these endorsements!

Jean Chatzky

Smart Money’s Jean Chatzky strongly advises buyers to hire an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent to purchase a home. Here she talks to Bryant Gumbel about the four types of real estate agents and what you’re really getting when you hire them.

Dave Ramsey

“…Finally, make sure you get what’s known as an exclusive buyer’s agent, one who is exclusively loyal to you, the buyer.”

Suze Orman

Internationally acclaimed finance specialist Suze Orman endorses the National Association of Exclusive Buyer’s Agents in the “Finding a Buyer’s Agent” section of her popular web site.

Ralph Nader

“Real estate and housing is one of the least consumer protected areas in our country and buyers overpay for housing by more than $10 billion due to poor representation.” In Agency Law Quarterly, Nader “again held up exclusive buyer brokerage as the only legitimate option for the home buying public.”

Consumer Reports

“Home-buyers may not realize that the friendly real-estate agent who has shown them through dozens of homes and shared their secrets is legally obliged to use that information to help get the best possible price and terms for the seller.”

Motley Fool

“Even though a traditional agent may spend hours and hours with you, her allegiance isn’t to you at all. It’s to the seller, and in this regard her main motivation is to get as much money out of you as possible. ”

Reader's Digest

“…Always remember that a real estate agent does not work for you, but for the seller. If you want an agent on your side, hire a buyer broker.”

US News & World Report

“Buyer brokers: agents that buyers call their own…” “If your real estate agent isn’t a buyer broker, he works for the seller.” “Buyers no longer have to fend for themselves”.

USA Today

“Agents: How to hire one for your side.” “Most agents who show you homes don’t represent your interests. They work for the seller, and their object is to sell the house at the highest possible price.”

Wall Street Journal

“But consumer advocates say [dual agency] cheats both buyers and sellers, denying them an agent’s allegiance and undivided attention at a time when they’re making a major financial decision. ‘You’re either loyal or you’re not. It’s like being slightly pregnant,’ says Maureen F. Glasheen, former counsel to the New York Secretary of State, who opposes dual agency.”

CNN Money

“What you need is what’s known as an ‘exclusive buyer agent.’” – CNN Money – “Money 101, Lesson 8: Buying a Home”

US Dept. of Housing & Urban Development

“Although… agents and brokers provide helpful advice, they may legally be representing the interests of the seller and not yours” in  “Shopping for Your Home Loan: HUD’s Settlement Cost Booklet”

Bloomberg

“(Buyer) brokers are obliged to get buyers the best deal possible, they approach a house with a critical eye for apparent flaws. “

Money Magazine

“Confide to a traditional real estate broker that you’re prepared to bid as much as [$xxx,xxx] on a house, and the broker will tip off the seller. Tell a buyer-broker, and the seller will never know.”

Los Angeles Times

“Exclusive buyer’s agents work only for consumers and often can save them money… [they] are not tied to any particular property or agency, so they will show buyers any home, even those for sale by owner.”

Consumer Federation of America

“If you want representation, work with a buyer broker. They are legally obligated to represent your interests in any negotiations with sellers.”

New York times

“A buyer’s broker is prohibited from disclosing to a seller that the buyer can, or will, pay more than what has been offered… To eliminate conflict of interests, exclusive buyer agents do not take listings. Buyer’s broker make a great deal of sense.”

Kiplinger

“Unlike traditional agents, EBAs don’t work for listing brokers, so they avoid the risk of dual agency — when one broker represents both parties. EBAs are still paid by the seller, but they can promise to represent your interests exclusively throughout the transaction and help you negotiate the lowest price.”

Keeping it Real

Brokers don’t see it as their job to provide their agents leads anymore. You might get a big pile of dead leads to cold call. You might even manage to turn one of them into a sale. But you will never, ever, ever have a profitable, sustainable career in real estate if you can’t generate leads. Ever. To make it, you need to offer a service that people want. You need to do something different than the next guy, and you need to do it much better. The world doesn’t need another traditional real estate agent but it’s desperate for the services offered by an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent.
