Set up showings
Research recent sales to fine comparable homes in the same area to see what they have sold for to be sure the buyer is making a correct offer.
Fill out all the legal contracts and offer forms, including items to protect the buyer's interest like appraisal contingency, financing contingeny etc..
Professionally negotiate as a third party with the listing agent that is representing the seller
Once an offer is accepted, help set up inspections, contractor estimates and any other due diligence that is needed and renegotiate if needed prior to the end of the due diligence period.
Work with the buyer's lender to be sure the financing side of the deal stays on track and prepare documents for the closing attorney.
Do a final walk through of the property, if needed, prior to closing.
Set up and be at the closing to be sure there are no last minute surprises and that the buyer's contract is fulfilled and their interests are protected.
Be available after the closing to assist the new home owner if any difficulties arise.
The best part is: THE SELLER PAYS THE BUY'S AGENT SO ALL THIS WORK AND SERVICE COST YOU NOTHING.
