A real estate buyer’s agent represents the consumer who is purchasing a property in the transaction. This agent owes full responsibility and loyalty to the homebuyer. He or she has solely the buyer’s best interests in mind throughout the entire transaction process. The agent is compensated by the buyer through a negotiated fee or in some states by the commission based on the selling price of the property. It is important for the consumer to discuss the buyer agent’s compensation and for the parties to agree to terms with a written contract prior to viewing properties. This agreement should detail the responsibilities of both parties throughout the process of buying a home. It should be noted that in some states legislation has been enacted to protect the buyer to the point that without a written agreement, the agent represents a seller throughout the entire transaction. Be sure to consult your real estate agent for complete details when you first start the search for purchasing any real estate property.
