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.
