A buyer’s agent represents you, the buyer, during the home buying process. The agent has a fiduciary responsibility to represent only the home buyer’s best interest in all aspects of the home buying transaction.
A seller’s agent or “listing agent” represents the home seller. They may assist the buyer, but do not represent the buyer and must place the interest of the home seller first.
A dual agent represents both the buyer and the seller ethically and honestly and must safeguard the confidentiality of both parties.
