This agreement is designed to protect real estate agents. He/She starts to give you guides and information about the process of buying houses and sometimes spends a lot of time showing you real estate. He thinks he will earn a commission if he helps you negotiate and close a house. If you jump and abandon it by finding an FSBO on your own or going to a new sales office, let them know in advance. If you don`t really want someone to represent you and you can`t commit to a level of loyalty (for the person who works for you but is paid by the seller), then I`m sure they want to know before you invest in you at some point. @Russell Brazil The following citation from the NAR does not prohibit brokers from discussing the quality of schools, it prohibits them from accepting and asserting that the quality of schools is tantamount to a form of identification of a racial composition or the use of code words for racial profiling of an area. But just go ahead and try to get the realtor to represent only you… Presenting a disclosure agreement is more than signing an exclusive right agreement. If a broker feeds me a property that I buy at the end, I have no problem signing a specific real estate agreement, necessary to be included in the offer it files on my behalf. You can offer exclusive agency agreements on a real estate basis or a time of your choice (1 day, 3 months, etc.). I`m kind of hardcore with brokers, I have no problem paying for the services rendered, but they don`t get 3, 5 or 6% of me without a single deal, but just wait for me to do all the research and tell them what quality I want. As always, the law continues to require a brokerage contract in the event of a brokerage relationship.
The agreement must now be written. The brokerage relationship is defined as « the contractual relationship between a client and a real estate licensee who has been mandated by such a client to obtain a seller, buyer, option, tenant or lessor willing to sell, buy, buy, exchange or lease real estate on behalf of a client. » Also, reserve emptor..,. the obligation is the buyer`s role to do his due diligence with respect to ALL that could be misinterpreted as direction, redlining, etc. @James way the « first essential contact » rule in NC requires brokers « to give potential buyers or sellers a written document explaining the concepts of action of the client and the agent and the trust duties that flow from it… with the buyer or seller. » I paraphrased how NC sees the interface between brokers and the public. You don`t need exclusive representation.
