It's not all bad, just mostly bad.
I am not a huge fan of dual agency. I think it represents a hugs challenge to a real estate agents fiduciary responsibility to their client. So today, we are going to talk about what it is, how it exists in California (Your state may vary) and when it is a good thing and when it is a bad thing. Keep in mind, it is completely legal in California as long as the agent gets all parties to sign the right disclosures. However, just because something is legal, does not mean it is ethical. Also keep in mind that dual agency means more money for agents and brokers. So whenever you get a discussion on the topic of dual agency, if it comes from someone in the profession - they are most likely going to go out of their way to make dual agency sound like a really good idea. Make sure to keep your head on straight if you find yourself in a situation where dual agency is a possibility and use the information in todays show to help you work through it!
