The buyer who wants the best deal possible
The buyer’s agent who solely represents the best interests of the buyer
The buyer’s attorney (in some parts of the country)
The home inspection companies, which work for the buyer and will almost always find someproblems with the house
The termite company if there are challenges
The buyer’s lender if the structure of the mortgage requires the sellers’ participation

The buyer’s buyer in case there are challenges with the house your buyer is selling
