RE/MAX® REALTORS® cooperate well with other REALTORS® in the process of buying a home.

RE/MAX® REALTORS® prefer to work as a buyer-broker while assisting you in buying a home rather than as a Sub-Broker of the REALTOR® who is working for the Seller. We want to work for your best interest, not the Seller's. Most corporations request we represent their employees as buyer-brokers. They know sometime in the future they may be buying your home when you transfer again. Buyer-brokers help keep their relocation costs down because their employees have made smarter purchases. Things a RE/MAX® REALTOR® can do as a Buyer-Broker that they can not do as a sub-Broker:

  1. Prepare and interpret market analysis done on the property you are buying. (Determines if the price and terms of the listed property are correct)
  2. Analyze and compare the "Pluses and minuses" of different properties you are considering buying.
  3. Discuss the salability of different neighbourhoods. (What neighbourhoods hold their property values better.)
  4. Tell you any information discerned about the motivation of the Seller.

Most new home developments use REALTORS® to market their properties. These REALTORS® encourage other REALTORS® to bring their Buyers to the developments and will pay normal co-op and buyer-brokerage fees. You, the Buyer, will pay no more for using an RE/MAX® REALTOR® who represents you than using an area representative or REALTOR® who represents the Seller.

When looking at homes, we always want to be with you. We know there are times when you just want to drive around and get a "feel" of the neighbourhood. We recognize this. Should you go into an open-house or model home without your RE/MAX® REALTOR®, you may jeopardize your representation and may obligate yourself to additional out-of-pocket fees. So, should a model home or open-house look so good that you just have to go in, please tell the Seller's REALTOR® that you are working with us. Most, but not all, REALTORS® will honour your right to representation. Sign in and make sure you put your RE/MAX® REALTORS® name down with yours. If the Seller's REALTOR® does not allow you to have your own representation, walk away and come back with your RE/MAX® representative at a later time.
