How is buyer agency different?

February 24, 2015

When you sign a buyer agency agreement with an agent, the agent is working in YOUR best interests and they can provide you with extra services.

Without a buyer agency agreement, the agent is, by law, working for the seller.


Regardless of the agency agreement, there are certain things ALL agents MUST do for a buyer:

Protect your confidentiality

Treat you honestly and fairly

Respond honestly and accurately to questions concerning the property

Provide community data and current market conditions

Present contract proposals in an objective and unbiased manner

Accompany you to the closing and assist you through the process

Disclose material adverse facts about the property


The additional services you receive by entering into a buyer agency agreement with an agent are :

A professional opinion of the seller’s asking price, based on a comparable market analysis prepare for YOU.

Assist YOU in negotiations strategies in your best interest

Critique a seller’s property for you, beyond the required disclosing of defects

Advise on, write the offer and draft provisions in YOUR best interests
