Advantage Your Agent will know exactly what the seller is thinking and be able to convey those thoughts directly to you.

Disadvantage Your Agent will not be able to disclose everything the seller tells them

Advantage Another Agent's personality does not get involved and only one ego to deal with

Advantage You can always ask for another Agent in the same office to represent you, while the original Agent represents the seller. It is still dual Agency but you have someone you can speak to confidentially with your fears

Advantage As a member of the NAR all REALTORS sign a code of ethics that gives you protection. We work for our clients and would lose our license if we did not treat you with fiduciary responsibility.

Good luck!

This is perhaps a question that should be directed to an attorney along with specific concerns.

In most business transactions "hind sight is 20/20." Many individuals wish they had consulted an attorney after the fact.......your timing is perfect.

Good luck,

Contact your agent and let them know. Any updates on Trulia should only take 24-48hours from when the ad is changed whether its done manually or a direct feed from another site.
