Working With Real Estate Agents in the Carolinas
The SC Real Estate Commission brochure "South Carolina Disclosure of Real Estate Brokerage Relationships" is HERE>
When buying or selling real estate, you may find it helpful to have a real estate agent assist you. Real
estate agents can provide many useful services and work with you in different ways. In some real estate
transactions, the agents work for the seller. In others, the seller and buyer may each have agents. And
sometimes the same agents work for both the buyer and the seller. It is important for you to know whether an
agent is representing you as your agent or simply assisting you while acting as an agent of the other party.
This brochure addresses the various types of agency relationships that may be available to you. It
should help you decide which relationship you want to have with a real estate agent. It will also give you useful
information about the various services real estate agents can provide buyers and sellers, and it will help explain
how real estate agents are paid.
