Did your agent discuss agency with you?

Did your agent discuss agency with you before he or she shows you a property? Do you know what type of agency you can obtain from an agent? Make sure you have a written agreement before you go to see properties. It will guarantee your agent represent you, the buyer, not the seller.

No self-respecting real estate agent would ever show homes without having the necessary documents signed.

No honest buyer would expect an agent to show homes without any commitment on both sides. An agent who "shows" homes is no more than a mere door opener. No shame in that as most rookie agents go through this phase.  Sometimes we need to learn the hard way :-)

   This is a Mississippi Real Estate Commission rule or law.  If an agent fails to do it they could expose themselves to litigation.  I have heard agents sometimes do not do this before showing a house because they are afraid of scaring the client/customer off. Many people are afraid to sign a document just to LOOK at a house.  It is only an informational document but alot of people do not want to sign anything.  If they don't sign your not supposed to show the home.  The document is called "Working with a Broker" here on the coast.  If you have the listing side it is usally signed when you sign the listing papers.  If you have both parties to represent they sign a DUAL AGENCY form.  Either side they represent you should expect the agent you use to be fair and ethical too.

If you're buying a home, make sure the agent works for you! It's called Agency. If they forget to bring it up, then you bring it up.
