best price: 5 Reasons to use an Exclusive Buyer's Agent (EBA) when Buying a Home - 11/13/14 07:29 AM
1. You Become A Client (Not A Customer)
According to the National Association of Realtors, If you work with the seller's agent, you are not a client, you are a customer. "As a customer, a buyer is not represented by [the] agent... the agent cannot negotiate on the buyer's behalf nor reveal to the buyer any confidences of the client, the client is the seller."
If instead, you hire an agent to represent you and your interests, your agent CAN negotiate on your behalf and CAN reveal to you anything they learn about the seller or the home that could benefit you in negotiations, or which … (0 comments)

best price: Why is Signing a Buyer-Agency Agreement That Important? - 05/07/07 05:02 PM
Our Buyer-Agency Agreement requires us to be legally responsible and accountable to you. A Seller's agent, by law, must work in the best interest of their client, including giving any learned information about the Buyers to the Sellers.

In Utah, if the listing agent tells you she will work with you as your "buyer's agent", you will be asked to sign an agreement limiting your representation.
