When it comes to a real estate transaction, there are two types of agents. One is from the buyer's side and one is from the seller's side. Here are some basic differences between the two.
A listing agent acts as a representative of the seller and has the legal obligation to work on behalf of the seller to determine the best possible price and seller terms. Their primary job is to help set the listing price, market the property to maximize exposure, disclose the property's condition to all parties, and advise the seller during the negotiation or closing.
A selling agent's role is to help buyers find their dream home. They negotiate on the buyer's behalf and protects the buyer's interest throughout the transaction.
Each agent has a duty toward their buyer or seller and typically splits the commission paid by the seller equally.
