[quote=PortStLucieWater;33650785]SeaLark7 unless you have a signed buyers agreement your agent


"Traditionally, all agents involved in a real estate transaction legally represent the Seller (both the "Listing Agent" and the "Selling Agent.") When a Buyer's Agent is involved, the person buying the property is represented by the "Selling Agent," who is known as the "Buyer's Agent."

Representation: Difference between a Buyer's Agent and Seller's Agent


the Selling Agent is NOT the Buyers Agent --- that contradictory since the Selling Agent MUST work for the seller.

A Buyers Agent has a signed agreement to ONLY work for the BUYER .....and represent the buyer in every way- not disclose any information to the selling agent or seller, etc. that would give them undue information about anything more than absolutely necessary.

The Selling Agent term is used in Conjunction (many times) with the term Buyers agent. You have the Listing Agent and the Selling agent in most MLS systems when a home is sold.

Most people do not use the term Selling Agent, it's more of an in industry term to distinguish from the Listing Agent.

I understood that in FL, the Seller pays quite a few of the closing costs. At least that is how it worked when I purchased in Punta Gorda.

there are seller closing costs and buyers closing costs that are standard for this area. They can always be changed by both parties agreement.

Broward County, for example, is different
