HUD recommends Exclusive Buyer’s Agent

If you want someone to represent only your interests, consider hiring an “exclusive buyer’s agent”, who will be working for you.

Taken from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Developments updated “Shopping for Your Home Loan, HUD’s Settlement Cost Booklet” it states in Section IV. Shopping for a House; Role of the Real Estate Agent or Broker:

“Frequently, the first person you consult about buying a home is a real estate agent or broker.  Although these agents and brokers provide helpful advice, they may legally be representing the interests of the seller and not yours.

It is your responsibility to search for an agent who will represent your interests in the real estate transaction.  If you want someone to represent only your interests, consider hiring an “exclusive buyer’s agent”, who will be working for you.
