Why Top Producers are saying the Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR®) Designation is a vital part of their business in 2022: As a nation, we’re experiencing historically low housing inventory. When inventory is tight, buyers look for agents who are going to give them the best chance of getting the home of their dreams—which means any competitive advantage you can get is invaluable. In today’s seller’s market where multiple-offer situations are the norm, buyer’s agents need tried and true skills and strategies to give them the edge. ABR designees are equipped to guide homebuyers through every stage of the home buying process. Survive this market by becoming an advocate of the home buying process through the ABR.
