- Get Your Own Representation – Buyer Agency Services at No Cost.
In a typical real estate transaction, there is a listing agent and a selling agent. The listing agent represents the sellers and the selling agent represents the buyers. A buyers agent can represent you at no cost.
The listing agent has a contract with the sellers to list, market and sell their home, and they will be reimbursed for these services, usually in the amount of 6% of the sales price, when the home sells. If there is a buyer’s agent, then that commission amount will be split between both agents. If the listing agent happens to represent buyers on one of his own listings, he would receive the whole 6%. So, this will not save a buyer money, it will only increase a listing agent’s commission. Also, the listing agent has a fiduciary duty (and legally binding contract) to represent the sellers, so their first priority would be them, and not you as a buyer. This is called limited agency.
