With all the tools and advice available today, it would be possible for you to buy a home almost completely without the aid of real estate professionals. However, that is not necessarily recommended.
The housing market, like politics, is essentially local, and each state, city, and even neighborhood has an assortment of local laws and customs that you need to understand. For that, it helps to have a team of professionals to guide you. A buyer who is well informed, well prepared and represented by a skillful real estate agent has a much better chance of finding a home that they will love and purchasing it at a competitive price.
85% of sellers list their homes through an agent but those agents are working for the seller, not you. They're paid based on a percentage of the purchase price; therefore, it is in their best interest to get you to pay more. That’s why having an "exclusive buyer agent” because their allegiance is only to you.
