Did you know that most real estate agents are seller’s agents? That means that unless you have a buyer agency agreement or dual agency agreement, the person you’re sharing your personal information with works for the seller, not you. A buyer’s agent has, without limitation, the following fiduciary duties to the buyer: reasonable care, undivided loyalty, confidentiality, full disclosure, obedience, and duty to account. In addition, the buyer’s agent is also subject to any specific provisions set forth in an agreement between the agent and the buyer. In dealings with the seller, the buyer’s agent should: exercise reasonable skill and care in performance of the agent’s duties, deal honestly, fairly and in good faith and disclose all facts known to the agent materially affecting the buyer’s ability and/or willingness to perform a contract to acquire the seller’s property that are not inconsistent with the agent’s fiduciary duties to the buyer.
