The real estate market is constantly changing, and the same is true for the laws surrounding it. The state of Washington just started requiring that home buyers sign a Buyer Broker Services Agreement in order to work with a licensed broker like me.
Although it sounds like a big change, these types of agreements have been in use for a long time — the main difference is that now they are legally mandated. Just like seller agreements, which have long been required, the buyer agreement provides important protections for all parties involved.
Buyer Broker Services Agreements benefit you a few ways. They protect you from conflicts of interest, require me to follow specific professional guidelines, and provide transparency about my legal duties and compensation. All of this adds up to enhanced clarity at the outset when we work together on your next home purchase.
I'm very familiar with the Buyer Broker Services Agreement and its standards. Windermere has always encouraged the use of buyer agency agreements and now they’ll be the norm for all licensed brokers state-wide. By signing a buyer agreement with me, you’ll receive the same superior representation, in-depth market information and skilled advocacy you've always come to expect.
