Every real estate transaction is unique with its own set of circumstances. These are the common situations that occur on a regular basis. Your Home Central Agent can advise you as to what is best for your particular situation.
Listing Agent: (The name on the yard sign)
The listing agent must represent the "best interest" of the person selling the home. In some cases the seller may allow the listing agent to act as a "Dual Agent" which is a neutral position between the buyer and seller. The listing agent will never represent the buyer.
The buyer's agent must represent the "best interest" of the buyer. The buyer's agent can advise the buyer on the offering price and terms, financing options, inspections, inspection remedy negotiations, home warranty, easements and zoning, and the appropriate time frame for all phases of the purchase process.
