Is your Realtor working for YOU?
Let's look at some of the terms, what they mean and how they would effect you.
Seller's Agent Your duty is to obtain the best deal for the seller. You are allowed to give the buyer only material facts about the property. A Seller's Sub Agent is an agent from another office who is not working as a Buyer's Agent.
Buyer's Agent Your duty is to obtain the best deal for the buyer. You may pass on any and all information you obtain about the seller or the property.
Dual Agent You must be loyal to both parties. Dual agency occurs when a real estate agency owns a listing, and an agent from the office, working as a buyer's representative, shows that listing. In areas where it's allowed, Dual Agency must be disclosed and agreed-to in writing by both parties. Some real estate educators, compares Dual Agency to "walking a tightrope," since it's sometimes difficult to focus on the needs of one client versus the other.
Designated Agent Very similar to Dual Agency, and also not available everywhere. The broker-in-charge designates two agents to work a transaction, one for the seller, one for the buyer.
