Listing Agent Should Deal Fairly And Honestly With All Buyers :

Disclosures include vital information about the fundamentals of the listed property and limit the listing’s agent ability to exploit prospective buyers . This set of documents prevents unscrupulous agents to give unfounded opinions or deceptive responses to prospective buyer’s inquiries. Outside of disclosures, bear in mind that the duty of a Realtor is limited to their prior knowledge about the property and observations made while conducting their visual inspection. Listing Agent Should Deal Fairly And Honestly With All Buyers

Listing Agent Do Not Comment On Adverse Facts In Disclosures:

Listing Agent Do Not Comment On Adverse Facts In Disclosures Do not expect listing agents to provide advice, recommendations, suggestions and opinions on adverse facts disclosed about the property. Realtors will not elaborate further on the consequences of not conducting further due diligence should a problem be called out in the disclosures . The fundamental reason is that neither a listing agent nor a buyer agent should decide for you whether or not any given property is a good match for you. Real estate agents are here to give you all the tools you need to make the right decision, nothing more, nothing less. Not complying with this restriction can have serious consequences and put the liability of the Realtor and his/her Brokerage at risk.
