Peachtree City, GA (PRWEB) May 24, 2006 –-
It has long been acknowledged that homeowners listing their home for sale will be represented by a Listing Agent. This agent is bound, both ethically and contractually to represent the seller in negotiating the best terms and price for the sale of their home. So what about the buyer? Who represents them? Until recently, buyers were largely underrepresented, if they were represented at all. Fortunately, that is all changing.
Kem & AC Roda of Home Source Realtors are pleased to announce that Buyer Agency is available to buyers in Atlanta’s Southern Crescent region of Fayette and Coweta counties. Primary markets served in this area are Peachtree City, Fayetteville, and Newnan. As Peachtree City Buyer Agents, Kem & AC are committed to offering exclusive representation to buyers so that everyone involved in the transaction has an equal voice.

Some key points to consider when choosing a Georgia Buyer’s Agent are that a good Buyer Agent will have their client’s (you, the buyer) best interest in mind. As opposed to the Listing Agent, who is contractually bound to represent the seller, the Buyer Agent will negotiate the best price and terms for their client, the buyer. Atlanta Buyer Agents know the area as well as reliable, reputable local service providers including home inspectors and contractors. Since Buyer Agents work primarily with buyers, they also have their finger on the pulse of local lenders and who may be offering programs specifically designed to meet the needs of local buyers.
Don’t be misled into thinking that if you find a home on your own, that the Listing Agent will help you in the negotiation by giving advice or cutting their commission. The Listing Agent works hard to market the seller’s home and “find” a qualified buyer. However, this typically does not mean they are the ones to bring the buyer to the table. As with any legal transaction, it is always best to have separate representation for each party involved. If you were going through a divorce, you would not want your spouse’s attorney representing you, now would you? The same principal holds true when purchasing a home. As a Peachtree City Buyer Agent, Kem Roda is highly qualified to represent you, the buyer.
When choosing an agent to provide buyer representation in Atlanta, be sure to note whether or not the agent holds the ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative) designation. All Buyer Agents are Realtors, but not all Realtors are ABR's. As an Accredited Buyer Representative, Kem Roda offers dedicated and exclusive representation to her clients.
