 Representation. Who Represents You?
By John Adams

One of the hot topics facing the world of real estate right now is the issue of agency. Some would have you believe that it really doesn't affect you, the buyer, and that nothing much has changed. But they are wrong.

The topic of agency is important to you because it answers the most basic and fundamental question that can be asked of any real estate professional: Who do you represent in this transaction?

Until that question is answered, you may be left with the impression that all agents who work with buyers actually represent those buyers, and that you have somebody going to bat for you in this transaction. Well, the issue of agency is important because without it, we can never be sure who represents who.

Here's the scenario:

You meet a really nice agent at an open house named Bonnie. Even though Bonnie's house is not right for you, she tells you she has others to show you that fit your needs exactly. You spend an hour or so with Bonnie looking at a half dozen homes and talking about your needs and your wants. During the course of the conversation, you volunteer that you have $100,000 cash to spend and that you will not go over $100,000 purchase price no matter what. Then you find the perfect house. Asking price is $100,000 but you decide to offer $92,500 based on recent sales in the area. During negotiations, the seller asks Bonnie directly how much cash you have and how high will you go? What does Bonnie say?

Here's the answer: Unless you have signed a "Buyer Agency Agreement" with Bonnie making her your buyer agent, she is most likely acting as a sub-agent to the listing broker who represents the seller. If that is the case, she has a fiduciary obligation to the seller to disclose to him any information she has that might "promote or protect his interest" in the transaction. Guess what? Bonnie has that information.

The Seller, now having knowledge of your financial position, counters at a full $100,000. He knows you can afford it and that this price falls within your desired range. He also knows that you have seen a number of other homes and that his is the one you want.

Regardless of what eventually happens in this scenario, it can hardly be called an even playing field. So, how can you protect yourself from a possible disclosure required of a seller's agent?

1. Make sure that the agent you are working with has agreed, in writing, to represent you as a "Buyer's Agent." This will mean signing a buyer brokerage agreement in which you promise to work only with that particular agent for a specific period of time, often 90 days. It also means that you promise not to buy from anybody else, even FSBOs, without involving your buyer's agent. In almost every case, the commission will still come from the seller, but your agent must present the offer.

2. Never say anything to anybody unless you would be willing to have that information repeated into a seller's ear. Assume that everybody, and I mean everybody, is working for a seller unless you have specifically hired them to work for you. And even then, be discreet. During the second world war, the military promoted a phrase designed to stop idle gossip: Loose lips sink ships! You would do well to adopt that philosophy in your home-buying as well.
What is Buyers Agent? What is a Buyer's Agent?

A real estate buyer's agent represents the consumer who is purchasing the property in the real estate transaction. The buyer's agent works for the buyer client and has the clients best interests in mind through out the entire real estate transaction process. This agreement should spell out the responsibilities of both parties throughout the real estate transaction.

Texas law requires all real estate licensees to give the following information about brokerage services
to prospective buyers, tenants, sellers, and landlords.

Can't I buy the house cheaper if I call the agent whose
    name is on the sign?

  Not necessarily,  The listing agent owes their loyalty to the seller and will be looking out for the seller's best interest. All they will do is write up the offer to purchase at the amount you specify. Be very careful of what you say! The listing agent, by law, must tell the seller if you indicate you are willing to pay more than what you offered for the house.
Remember - they work for the seller, not the buyer.
What About New Homes and New Subdivisions?

Often there is a on site salesperson at model homes or subdivisions who represents
 the builder. Sometimes, there might be a real estate office at the subdivision that handles a lot of the builders in that subdivision. In all of  these situations a Buyer should have their own representation with an agent who is not representing the builder, subdivision, or developer.

  We can represent the Buyer with purchase of a new home in an existing or new subdivision. Most builders will gladly pay a real estate commission to a REALTOR who brings a buyer for one of their homes.

 If you take a drive around the county and check out the new construction, don't sign in or register at any of the houses or with any of the sales people
if you're planning to use a Buyer Representative for your actual purchase

Tell them that you are working with a REALTOR and will return with that Realtor if you are interested in that subdivision.

Doesn't it make sense to have an agent represent you?
