More Information for Buyers
As buyers agents we work exclusively for you, the home buyer, and wedo not charge a commission for our services. The listing agent isactually the source of our commission.
When a listing agent lists a home he charges the seller a certainpercentage of the sale price for listing and marketing. The listingagent then informs his network of industry contacts and other agentsthat he has listed a new home. He also gets the word out in theNashville Multiple Listing Service, more commonly known as theNashville MLS.
From the listing agent's point of view, it's ideal to sell the hometo a buyer he's in contact with, thereby keeping all the commission.This very rarely happens because as soon as the home is listed in theNashville MLS every buyer in the region can see the home online. Thismeans that instead of the home being shown to a small pool of buyers itis shown to all the agents with buyers who are looking for Nashvillereal estate. As you can imagine, the listing agent is more than happyto pay the buyer's agent a share of the total commission for sellingthe property.

Direct links to the Nashville MLS on our sites enable you to access to the same basic information about homes as our team of agents. If you see a home that you absolutely love while you are surfing the net at 3:00am you can e-mail that info to your designated buyer's agent and then he or she would wake up to a request from you for more info about the home.
As buyers agents we have access to all property records in terms of the days on the market, how many times it has been listed, comparable sales in the area and neighborhoods, price per square foot, the Tennessee Residential Property Disclosure from sellers, tax records, and much more.
