QUESTION:

.What is an encyclopedia
definition of
Exclusive Buyer Agent?

ANSWER:
From Wikipedia,
the free encyclopedia:

"An Exclusive Buyer Agent (or EBA) is a
United States real estate firm (or an agent or
broker who works in
such a company) which represents only buyers
of real estate."

"As such, they are distinguished from
all other real estate firms by their business model
of 100% buyer representation."

"The EBA movement started in the late 1980's and, by the early 1990s
as with the rise of Buyer agency in general in US states, firms came into being and a national
trade association, the
National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents, was formed. As of 2008, EBA firms now offer
service to buyers in
almost all 50 states."

"While some states have created
various forms of
DUAL AGENCY
to allow one company to represent both sides, other states have made it
illegal."

Dual Agency is still practiced by traditional Realtors in Ohio - but
buyers and sellers must give written consent. Undisclosed Dual Agency remains illegal
in all 50 states.

THE BUYER'S AGENT,
Buyer Broker Real Estate
Dayton, Ohio
does not practice
Dual Agency,
because we practice
Exclusive Buyer Agency
ONLY.

According to Ohio law,
ALL Realtors must give every potential Buyer their company's "Consumer Guide to Agency Relationships" BEFORE showing you any homes. You have the LEGAL RIGHT to know if a Realtor and their company practices Dual Agency or Split Agency. The Consumer Guide contains a statement that Realtors are REQUIRED to give Buyers their Guide, and it must also have a place for Buyers to SIGN, indicating you received a Guide.

If a Realtor showed you a home, and you were NOT given a "Consumer Guide to Agency Relationships," you may want to contact an attorney or the Ohio Department of Commerce, Division of Real Estate & Professional Licensing at (614) 466-4100 or Ohio Division of Real Estate.

Ohio law further states that Realtors are required to provide Buyers with their company's "Consumer Guide to Agency Relationships" before the earliest of the following events:

  • Pre-qualifying a Buyer for a loan
  • Requesting specific financial information from a Buyer
  • Showing property to a Buyer (Open Houses are exempted)
  • Discussing the making of an offer with a Buyer
  • Submitting an offer on behalf of a Buyer

In Ohio, There Are 5
Recognized Types of Agency

The type of agency practiced by a real estate company will determine who the company and its Realtors will represent - or NOT represent - during your purchase of a home. Real estate companies are allowed to create their own company versions of the "Consumer Guide to Agency Relationships," as long as it complies with Ohio license law.

1) Split Agency: A real estate company that lists property as a seller's agent, but acts as a "buyer's agent" on other companies' listings. During this in-house transaction, when there's TWO Realtors involved with a listing, ONE works for the buyers, while ANOTHER Realtor - from the SAME company - works for the sellers. When there's just ONE Realtor acting as both seller's agent AND as buyer's agent, then he/she is a Dual Agent. Companies that practice Split Agency are supposed to protect confidential information within their office. But how can they guarantee it?

2) Dual Agency: A company that "represents" sellers and buyers, but these Realtors are always Dual Agents on every in-house transaction. This agency is for companies that don't believe they can protect confidential information between the Realtors in their office. Although a Dual Agent is often hired first by the sellers for selling their home, the law requires Dual Agents to remain "neutral" towards Buyers - and they cannot advocate OR negotiate OR protect the Buyer's best interests. When a Dual Agent/Realtor is hired first by a seller - whether it's a relative, or a friend, or golf buddy, or just a seller - how confidential will the Buyer's confidential information remain?

3) Split Agency/No Dual: A company that lists homes, represents buyers, practices Split Agency, and not Dual Agency. When the Buyer wants to purchase a home listed with his/her "buyer's agent," the agency relationship with the Buyer is terminated, and the Realtor will represent only the seller. How's that grab you for loyalty to a Buyer?

4) Exclusive Seller Agency only: A real estate brokerage that lists property for sellers and acts as a subagent of the seller on other broker's listings. Buyers are treated as customers by these Realtors. Dual agency is not practiced by this type of company.

5) EXCLUSIVE BUYER AGENCY only: A real estate company that ONLY REPRESENTS BUYERS. This type of real estate company:

  • Does NOT take listings or "sell" houses
  • Does NOT practice Seller Agency
  • Does NOT practice Split Agency
  • Does NOT practice Dual Agency
  • Buyers are CLIENTS - not customers
  • The Buyer's financial information is PROTECTED and stays CONFIDENTIAL
  • CAN GUARANTEE 100% LOYALTY and 100% Representation for Buyers
  • Advises the Buyer even if it means pointing out reasons NOT to buy
  • EXCLUSIVE BUYER AGENCY is the BEST choice for all Buyers

Unlike traditional Realtors - who start as your "buyer's agent" but CAN SWITCH SIDES to practice either Dual Agency and/or Split Agency - THE BUYER’S AGENT, Buyer Broker Real Estate is ALWAYS ON THE BUYER'S SIDE®, protecting the Buyer's best interests from start to finish!

A traditional real estate agent, or Realtor, or "buyer agent" who
works for a company that "sells" real estate in the Dayton, Ohio area
CANNOT guarantee to ALWAYS represent YOUR interests.

A genuine Exclusive Buyer Agent will GUARANTEE in writing to
always "represent your interests exclusively throughout the transaction
and help you negotiate the lowest price."    Kiplinger's Magazine
