SmartMoney Magazine said it well:
To Buyers: If you want representation, work with a buyer broker. They are legally obligated to represent your interests in any
negotiations with sellers, states The Consumer Federation of America.
Groups such as the Consumer Federation of America and AARP recommend using buyer's agents
The Wall Street Journal reported:
"Exclusive agencies are the best. They remove any conflict of interest, which is the main reason for considering a
buyer broker in the first place."
Business Week said:
A conflict of interest is more likely when a real estate firm that represents sellers assigns you one of its brokers as a buyer
agent*. That's why many people believe an "exclusive" buyer broker is preferable.
*(Usually a designated/dual buyer agent now in Michigan)
Mobility Magazine's view:
"When buyers do not use an exclusive buyer broker, they are generally dealing with a professional, trained selling agent who has
pledged to get the best price and terms possible for the seller."
Author of the home buying book "Not One Dollar More" Joseph Eamon Cummings wrote:
Your goal should be to engage an agent who will represent only your interests. Not just a 'buyer broker', but an
exclusive buyer broker . Make sure that is what you are getting."
