02 Feb The Real Estate Personal Shopper, beyond intermediation
The Real Estate Personal Shopper, a deeply rooted profession in Anglo-Saxon countries, is still little known in Spain. Traditionally, to buy a home we use advertisements published in different media and well-known real estate agencies, who offer us their homes in portfolio or expand the search with other collaborating agencies.
However, a Real Estate Personal Shopper is the professional who helps to search for a home or office, without the interested party having to dedicate time and effort in the search, defending exclusively the interests of the buyer, not the seller. The Real Estate Personal Shopper, knows the market, looks for all the available offer in the selected areas, is in charge of price negotiations, reports, valuations and the necessary arrangements in the name of the buyer, whom he represents. I.e, the figure goes beyond intermediation, representing the buyer, as his agent.
What does representing the buyer mean?
- Listens and understands his needs and possibilities
- Exclusively defends the interests of the buyer, not the seller.
- Adapts to the characteristics of the home sought, in terms of location, size and budget.
- Adapts to the demands of the customer, the buyer
- Offers service and security in sales transactions
- Offers transparency regarding information
- Closes the best deal
- Charges fees only from the buyer, not the seller or any intermediary.
And above all, he represents and acts like he was the buyer himself, not an intermediate looking for the best solution for both parties, he defends and represents only the interests of the customer, the buyer of the property. He always acts in a rational way, avoiding possible emotional decisions in which a buyer unaccompanied by a professional may incur.
In Anglo-Saxon countries this figure intervenes in more than 40% of the intermediary operations, in Spain, its participation increases every year.
