Who Represents Whom?

Did you know that the agent hosting an open house is the Seller’s agent? Whether it is the actual listing agent or any other agent from the same company, that person legally represents the sellers. Not only that, the hosting agent – by law – has a fiduciary duty to the seller to get that seller the highest possible price for that property. Do you think it might be a conflict of interest for that same person to then represent you? Many people think so. In fact, in many states (other than NJ) it is illegal for the same agent to represent the seller and also work with the buyer.

If You Though Sunscreen & Condoms were the Only Protection You Need – You Are Wrong!

Interested in new construction – like Maxwell Place or Hudson Tea?  Before you walk into the Toll Brothers Sales Office know what you are getting in to!  Once you talk to the sales office – even casually – they WILL NOT compensate your agent if you go back with an agent.  Of course, you should go back with an agent because:

1.  The sales office works NOT for you but for the developer!   They are Toll Brother’s agent – not yours!

2.  Despite what you may have heard or come to believe, Toll Brothers is NOT going to cut you a deal if you work with them without an agent.

Looking at resales? Did you know that when you go to an open house you can see the property at the open house on your own and then go back to it with your own agent? So if you see something you like at an open house you find your own agent who does not work for the seller. By the way, if the host says “oh, it’s not my listing, I’m not the seller’s agent” they are just flat-out wrong.  The listing agreement a seller signs is between the seller and the brokerage company (Century 21, Coldwell, Remax, etc.).  EVERY agent from that firm is the seller’s agent!  So protect your interests.  You’re making one of the biggest financial decisions of your life.
