If this is the case, the next step is to talk to the broker of Record. The agents are technically representatives of their brokers and the buyers are clients of the brokerage company. If you explain the situation to the Record broker and it is reasonable, it is very likely that they will terminate the agreement. No one wants to force someone to work with them against their will. Many buyers may be reluctant to sign a buyer`s replacement contract because, for one reason or another, they don`t want to be tied to an agent and broker for a while. The good news is that these agreements can be separated before the expiration date if both parties agree. The protection period is an attempt to deter people who are trying to bypass their agents, there is no provision to protect an agent who is an idiot and gets fired for cause. Most real estate agencies don`t want unhappy customers there, I hope they would work with you. If not, spend $150 for a lawyer to send them a threatening letter. It may seem like a big commitment, but signing this contract means that your agent and broker promise to be fully committed to helping you find a home at a price you can afford while keeping in mind your best interests.
Your loyalty depends on you and not the seller, which means your agent works hard to make sure you`re the top priority of any other party to the deal. If your agent and broker don`t agree, I`d wait for the 90 days and go get someone to work for me. Not the other way around. These agreements may be specific, limited or exclusive. Make sure it doesn`t happen to you. Be careful what your agent has filled out in a buyer`s agreement, ask many questions and let your agents explain the agreement to you in the simplest terms. Doug, is he a personal investor or buyer? These two cities are located on different sides of the bay, aren`t they? I imagine an investor wants a local agent in every person who really knows their area. Investors often want agents to return stones to look for the right purchase for them, but they want to keep their options open to close a deal with another agent or FSBO, I don`t think so! I assimilate a man who wants to marry a faithful woman, but he hopes to continue to be together.
