Dual Agency

What is dual agency and why does it matter?

In real estate, your agent should be working on your behalf, whether you are the buyer or the seller.


Dual agency means that a brokerage represents BOTH the buyer and the seller in a transaction.   It may seem more efficient to have one firm handle the entire transaction.  But ask yourself, "How does a brokerage get the best deal for their seller when they are also trying to help the buyer get the best deal possible?"  


WNC Mountain Home Realty does not practice dual agency.  We represent only one party in the real estate transation: You. The seller.  You can be sure that we've got your back!
