      Consider Buyer Representation

      • As outlined in the Vermont Consumer Information Disclosure the only way to obtain representation as a buyer in Vermont is to contractually hire a realtor to represent you on the buyer side. Gaining buyer representation can translate into more favorable contract terms and better service from your agent. While most buyers in Vermont purchase property without buyer representation, it can be very helpful.
