How does an exclusive buyer agency agreement protect the Buyer's interests?This is a sample exclusive buyer agency agreement posted here. While it may not be the exact form you use/recommend, are the contents effectively the same? If so, I have these concerns...2.1 Buyer hereby employs Agent as Buyer's sole and exclusive agent to represent Buyer to find a property meeting Buyer's Specifications.Nice, Agent's interest is protected against immediate competition. And this protects the Buyer how?2.1 Buyer shall promptly disclose and refer to Agent all written or oral inquiries or contacts it receives from any source regarding a possible purchase.Even better. If Buyer finds something on their own, they are contractually bound to bring this back to the Agent?2.2(d) Buyer shall identify to Agent as "confidential" any communications or information provided to Agent that Buyer considers confidential and desires not to be disclosed by Agent.So, the only information protected is that which is specifically identified by the Buyer? All other info is fair game to be passed the Seller's Agent? Nice protection of the Buyer's interests.3.1 Said Agreed Commission is payable without regard to whether the Transaction is consummated as a result of the efforts of the Agent, owner, or any other person or entity.Sweet! Agent gets paid no matter who effects the actual sale? It's a good thing the Buyer is so well protected.continued...May 10 2010 - US55YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
