Real Estate Resources
Thinking about buying or selling your home? Are you looking for more information to better inform you on the pros and cons before you buy or sell? Check out this list of helpful real estate resources to assist you with your next sale or purchase.
New regulations in BC mean real estate professionals must to disclose to consumers, at the outset of their dealings:
- whether they will be able to represent the consumer as a client
- what their duties and responsibilities are to clients and unrepresented parties
- how to file a complaint with the Real Estate Council of BC
This information helps to ensure that consumers are not confused or misled about whether a real estate professional they are dealing with is going to be representing their interests in the transaction.
The Disclosure of Representation in Trading Services form clearly outlines for consumers the services that a real estate licensee can provide. In addition to this disclosure, a Real Estate professional cannot represent two or more clients in the same transaction whose interests are in conflict. For example, a property seller and a prospective buyer for that same property. Representing two clients whose interests are in conflict is called dual agency and professionals are no longer allowed to engage in dual agency. Your real estate professional cannot represent both you (the buyer) and the seller in the same transaction.
However, with RE/MAX Priscilla we are uniquely positioned to have Real Estate Agents that can represent you for listings that are being offered by Priscilla as the listing agent due to our unique brokerage structure which is the only of its type in the RE/MAX Vernon network.
Below is a comprehensive list of real estate resources for you to get more informed. Of course, if you would like to discuss any of this information, please give us a call and we would be happy to go over the new regulations with you!
