We want to emphasize their fifth point.
Even though the Internet gives buyers unprecedented access to home listings, most new buyers (and many more experienced ones) are better off using a professional agent. Look for an exclusive buyer agent, if possible, who will have your interests at heart and can help you with strategies during the bidding process.
As exclusive buyer agents are aware of the difference a buyers agent can make on getting you the home you want at the price you can afford. We understand the markets, we know the neighborhoods (especially in the Twin Cities), we are champion negotiators and we have your best interests as our top priority.
