Buyers: Find Them, Bind Them and Mind Them


Purchasers may not want to work with a seller’s agent preferring an agent that acts on behalf of the buyers’ best interests. Licensees desiring to represent these buyers can promote their services and competitive differences in the marketplace. While buyer’s agents owe their client the fiduciary duties described in the NY agency disclosure form, a buyer and agent can also specify and clarify further rights and responsibilities through a binding agreement that stipulates the obligations and expectations of all parties involved. With effective counseling and communication, licensees can provide buyers assistance, analysis, advice and advocacy delivering a mindful experience the consumer anticipates and deserves.

Learning Objectives:

• Describe how agency relationships are formed

• Explain the NYS agency disclosure form in a meaningful manner

• Differentiate between customer responsibilities and client level duties

• Discuss how buyer representation works

• Evaluate the benefits of a buyer representation agreement for both the licensee and client

• Describe the purpose of a buyer counseling session

• Determine buyer’s needs and abilities to purchase

• Paraphrase the purpose and provisions of a buyer representation agreement

• Distinguish between client needs and agent capabilities

• List the steps of the home buying process
