"Call me for an Appointment to see my listing" said the Dual Agent

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sunset Beach and Beyond Realty

"Call me for an appointment to see my listing", said the Dual Agent.

"Why should I?", said the Sunset Beach Buyer reading this sentence in the comments section of a listing.

"Now wait just one minute"' said the Dual Agent hearing the Sunset Beach Buyer, "I can work both sides if I want to.  I can represent my seller and I can represent you as the Buyer."

The Sunset Beach Buyer thinks about it for a minute and asks the Dual Agent, "How can you act in the best interest of both of us? I want to buy the house for the cheapest price and the seller wants to sell for top dollar."

The Dual Agent tells the Sunset Beach Buyer not to worry, she will get the best price for the Buyer. "What are you willing to offer?"

"Now wait a minute there", said the Buyer, "I feel there is a conflict of interest here. How do I know what the seller will accept if you are working for the seller?" 

"I think I'm going to go find a Realtor who will work in my best interests. A Buyer Agent will work for me and only me, not me and the seller." said the Sunset Beach Buyer.

Very smart Sunset Beach buyer.  And a savvy Sunset Beach buyer should call Karen and Frank Baker to make sure their best interests are protected.

Love Being Realtors® in the Nashville TN Area!

I gladly encourage buyers to seek their own representation. It really is problematic to be facilitator for both sides.  I cover it immediately at the first phone call; ask if they have an agent, or if they are working with anybody, or if anybody has shown them homes. Many times they don't want to bother their agent, and think that you hang out at your listing all the time so they call you to show it to them.  If you show the property to them, and they want to make an offer, then the buyer's agent appears. :)

Hi Frank and Karen, so right...a buyer should always have their own representation. Lots of agents practice dual agency which is legal here in Oregon, but I find it to be exactly as you outlined in your post. You guys are the Sunset Beach go to buyer's agents for sure!
