Realtors’ Responsibilities May Not Be To You

When you hire a real estate agent, you assume that they’ll have your best interest in mind. If you’re a seller, you hope that they’ll get you the highest offer therefore profit for you so you can buy something bigger and better. And if you’re a buyer you hope they’ll find you your dream home at your dream price. However, many people are always wondering if realtors are just in it for their commission or that they’re accepting lower offers just to sell a home.

The reality is that, in many cases, real estate brokers and agents don’t actually have legal obligations to look after their clients’ best interests. According to housingwatch.com, laws in 25 states now allow brokers to serve buyers and sellers as transaction brokers or facilitators without the traditional fiduciary duties of loyalty and obedience. All 50 states allow brokers to double end a deal, meaning to work with both the buyer and a seller in the same transaction so there’s no split in the commission. However, neither parties get full representation.

So homebuyers shouldn’t assume their brokers work with their clients’ best interest in mind until they have a written disclosure describing the relationship. Both buyers and sellers can negotiate the commission rate to a figure they are comfortable with. When you find your dream home, contact the West Palm Beach movers for reliable moving services.
