What’s the difference between a buyer’s REALTOR and a seller’s REALTOR?
A buyer’s REALTOR is legally obligated to operate at all times in the best interest of the buyer.
A listing, or seller’s REALTOR has similar responsibilities, only with the seller’s concerns at the forefront. And if a REALTOR represents both the buyer and seller in negotiations, this is known as dual representation.
Real estate professionals are required to disclose exactly who they represent in a transaction. But it’s always smart to discuss the pros and cons of various types of representation with your REALTOR - including dual agency – to ensure that you understand what’s best for your specific situation.
