When a Realtor represents a buyer and helps the buyer purchase a home, they say "I sold a home to Joe".
I agree that the verbiage is confusing. I've tried to get the Realtors in my town to change their way of thinking, they just don't have the time or the interest.
When talking to the public, however, we general talk about Listing agents (representing the home) and buyer's agents (representing the buyer).
The same would apply for LISTING office vs. SELLING office.
Clear as mud.
If a person referenced seller agent to me could mean 2 things I would need to question person about their statement. Before I continued any statement
Thanks Keith. At least from that perspective I can see some justification in a "buyer agent" (lay term) being refferred to as the "selling agent" by the professionals.
Thanks for your thorough explanation. if i understood it, it must have been thorough.
On a side note.....I am heartbroken that no one has acknowledged my tribute to the king's birthday in the Q&A general area. Time is running out. :(
"When you go under contract you now have a Listing agent and a Selling agent. They are still the same people but the titles have changed with the duties of the transaction."
"If a person referenced seller agent to me could mean 2 things I would need to question person about their statement. Before I continued any statement."
OK y'all. My head is spinning, but I have given all of you a thumbs up for effort. Anyone else?.
