As stated by AARP and the Consumer Federation of America from REALTOR® News
In the State of Florida only a buyers agent or buyer broker can legally negotiate for the lowest price and best terms for the buyer. The buyers agent must take care of the buyers’ best interest. Only a buyers agent or buyer broker is required to keep the buyers financial status confidential. We take buyers side. Beverly Howe offers buyers over 30 years of Southwest Florida real estate expertise and negotiation skills.
Florida Buyer Broker is a “Single Agency” real estate company. We are exclusive buyers agents (EBA) who never represent both the buyer and the seller in the real estate purchase transaction.
My exclusive buyers agent office is compensated by the real estate commission already built into the property by the seller’s agent. The sellers agent includes the real estate commission in the price of the property. When the listing is entered into the REALTOR® MLS data searching system the sellers’ listing agent offers to share their commission with all other real estate agents including buyers agents. The seller often offers a bonus to buyers agents to find a buyer for their property.
The State of Florida assumes all buyers know all Florida real estate brokers and agents are considered to be Transaction agents. Transaction agents do not represent the buyer. Transaction agents have limited liability in the real estate transaction. Dual agency where both the buyer and the seller are represented by the same agent is illegal in the State of Florida. Real estate agents are not required to tell you or disclose anything to you in writing when they DO NOT represent you.
Only Single Agents who DO represent the buyer exclusively are required to make written disclosure to the buyers. There is a sample of the Single Agency Disclosure form on my homepage. See Single Agent Disclosure. This form is a disclosure is not a contract. It is a simple statement of facts to inform the buyer the Single agent owes the buyer fiduciary duties.
Some agents will start out saying they will be your buyer agent as a “Single Agent.” However, they will have you sign another statement which also allows them to “change,” their relationship to a Transaction agent. As a Transaction agent they would no longer represents you. When you become interested in any of their sellers’ listings or any of the other agents seller listings in their office, there will be a conflict of interest. They change from a Single agent to Transaction agent who not longer represents your best interest. Florida Buyer Broker is always a Single agent. We never “bait and switch” from Single agent to Transaction agent.
Just because someone is an Accredited Buyers’ Representative (ABR) does not mean they are an “exclusive” buyers agent (EBA). They may also list sellers properties and may need to change to Transaction agents who do not represent you.
Working with an exclusive buyers agent or buyer broker like Florida Buyer Broker guarantees you full representation. My office DOES NOT require a written buyer agent agreement, buyer broker contract or retainer fee. Many other offices will have fees for buyers agent and buyer broker services. Other offices may require a written agreement. Buyer Broker Agreements or Contracts may require the buyer to pay the balance of buyers agent or buyer broker compensation. They are written to protect the buyer agent and buyer broker, not the buyer. Florida Buyer Broker earns the buyers’ loyalty and accepts the shared commission offered by the sellers listing agent as total compensation. Builders also compensation buyers agent and buyer brokers to represent buyers in the purchase of new homes and condominiums. Builders do not sell a property to a buyer for when the buyer does not choose to work with a professional real estate agent, buyers agent or buyer broker.
