Buyers’ Agent / Sellers’ Agent… so – what is the difference and what are the roles of a Realtor?
If you are looking to purchase real estate, a licensed Realtor can represent your interests as a Buyers’ Agent. A buyer’s agent is hired by prospective buyers to help them find the right property and to represent them in a real estate transaction. The buyer’s rep works in the buyer’s best interest throughout the transaction and owes fiduciary duties to the buyer. The buyer can pay the licensee directly through a negotiated fee, or the buyer’s rep may be paid by the seller or through a commission split with the seller’s agent. At some point you will sign a buyer agency agreement with the Realtor that you choose to work with/ represent you in a transaction.
Why would you sign such a thing? Because it is a time investment for the Realtor and if you are working with an agent that has good experience and works hard for you – that Realtor would greatly appreciate your loyalty, since agents are paid only on commission, when a property closes.
If you want to sell real estate, a licensed agent can represent your as a Sellers’ Agent. The seller’s agent is hired by and represents the seller. All fiduciary duties are owed to the seller. This agency relationship is created with a listing contract. Buyers Agent or Sellers’ Agent – We work hard and get results. See the PA Consumer Notice here – it explains the roles of a Realtor. This a non-contractual form that we explain to you and you sign, when you start working with an agent.
Attention licensed agents: If you are a self-starter dynamo, and like the idea of an independent unique boutique agency, let Ellen know!
