Am I required to have an agent to buy a house in Florida?I live in south florida and made an offer on a house. In an email I noted that I was working without an agent which would save the buyer money. The sellers agent replied "Florida law is very clear regarding real estate. If we have a home listed for sale and you make an offer with out an agent I have the accountability and the responsibility to you as well as the seller, its called a transaction broker. You not only get one agent at your disposal but 2 ----- ------ and Myself at no cost." I did not ask for this agent to represent me and I don't believe there is a law that says I need or should get an agent, especially two that I don't even know. This guy is coming across (in other communication) as shady. FYI We didn't get an agent bc we weren't looking at other houses. We knew we wanted this one. It's in our neighborhood and we know the owners who let us walk through.January 03 2014 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
