It’s a Win-Win!
Buying a home may be the largest investment one will ever make. Working with a trusted CENTURY 21® Buyer Representative, the leader in the real estate industry, we understand and identify the unique needs of the buyer. Our professional team expertise provides all the information needed to help make an educated decision. Not only will the buyer representative negotiate the best terms and provide necessary information to make decisions, but be a reliable ally, always on YOUR side.
Choice of Agents
In the past, real estate agents served primarily the home seller, acting as a sub-agent of the listing broker while working with the buyer to help the buyer find a home. This meant that the agent was legally bound to obtain the best terms and price for the seller.
Today, the listing agent represents the seller and the buyer’s agent represents the buyer. Buyers have a choice of representation!
Agents also have a choice! Agents can elect to represent either the seller or buyer, or both. If the listing is one that is listed by the buyer’s agent’s office, limited dual representation is utilized.

Will the buyer need to sign an agreement?
Initially, it is completely optional for the buyer to sign an agreement before the search for a new home begins. However, when an offer is written, the buyer must sign an Agency Agreement as part of the offer and purchasing contract.
Caveat Emptor (let the buyer beware) does not apply when it comes to real estate. Your agent understands and can advise on inspections, disclosures, deadlines, loan procedures, etc. Representation for the buyer is essential in the home buying process.
What about new homes and new subdivisions?
If you are interested in a new home, I am happy to include those listings in my showings. Because North Idaho builders appreciate the assistance of Century 21 Realtors, our strong relationship makes it a smooth process for interested buyers.
When looking at new homes, it is important to let the site salesperson know that you currently have buyer representation with Century 21. Take us with you when you’re looking – “we speak the builders’ language.”
