A broker will sit down with you to find out how much home you can afford and what requirements the house should meet. You will consult the lists of real estate in your desired area and schedule appointments to show you houses that best meet your criteria. They will give you a general overview of the neighborhoods where you shop for houses and will answer any questions you may have along the way. In accordance with this clause, you agree to cooperate only with the buyer and the agency you have chosen. This means you can`t turn around and ask another agent to show you a property or write an offer to buy for you. The contract has a delay (usually a few months) until you are tied to your agent. If you buy a home within this time, you are required to pay the agent a commission rate that has been previously agreed. However, if you come into conflict with your agent, you have the right to request another one from the Agency. The agreement applies with the brokerage agency, not with the individual agent.
The agreement should describe the nature of the property to be acquired and its price range. For example, if the property to be acquired is described as a detached house, you are free to follow a 20-unit building through another real estate agent. If the acquisition parameters limit the contract to real estate in a particular county and you decide to buy in a neighboring county, you are not bound by the terms of your buyer brokerage contract. This agreement defines the broker/agent`s obligations and obligations to the buyer, agency relationships, brokerage volume and buyer`s obligations; it does not provide for compensation. The last key part of a contract between a buyer and an agent/broker is the description of what the buyer is looking for and the desired price range. For example, if you are looking for a small apartment that you can again use as your main residence with John, you can see with Betty a multi-residential complex. The clearer you can be in advance, the safer you will be. If you already have a property with which you are under contract, you can even negotiate the agreement to apply only to that property.
