It is important to look into the different kinds of Raleigh real estate agents and interview a few of them before you make a final selection. Most Raleigh real estate agents come under two categories: buyer's agent or exclusive buyer's agent.

Buyers agent

A buyer's agent works for a real estate agency that represents the buyer as well as the seller. They list properties for sale on behalf of the sellers, which could have the adverse effect of putting you in a potential conflict of interest situation. A buyer's agent could provide you exclusive buyer representation by excluding those properties that are listed for sale by their agency. However, this could mean cutting yourself out of viewing a large number of good homes that are available.

Exclusive Buyers Agent

An exclusive buyer's agent works for a real estate agency that does not list any properties for sale. A buyer's agent represents only the interests of the buyer and is 100% loyal to the buyer from finding the ideal real estate to negotiating the deal with the seller. An exclusive buyer's agent has equal access as a buyer's agent to all the properties available in the market and there is no question of conflict of interest.
