The article focuses on the difference between a home buyer's agent and a seller's agent. The author stresses that a seller's agent agrees to market the home of sellers while a buyer's agent seeks out the best house for his client and negotiates the lowest price. She emphasizes that when buyers sign a contract, they also go with a seller's agent. Seller's agents are required by law to give potential buyers any material information they are aware of.
