Two-handed trading is a method of brokering real estate sales by both the seller and buyer of real estate. If you buy real estate only once in your life, I think it's a word that even Japanese people rarely hear. Let's start talking about this deal today.
First, if the transaction is questioned as legal or illegal, it becomes legal. In a two-handed transaction, a real estate agent acts as an agent for the seller and an agent for the buyer only by one company. There is no illegality here, and the real estate brokerage fee charged is also a regular amount.
So what is the problem with this fact? In that case, an intermediary company who has received an intermediary contract from the seller monopolizes the information and does not accept the intermediary of another company. Generally, intermediary contracts are divided into the following three types.
※There are two types of Non-Exclusive Brokerage Service Agreement: "explicit type" in which the requested party is announced and "indefinite type" in which it is not disclosed. In the case of "explicit type", if you negotiate with a company that has not announced it, you will need to pay operating expenses etc.
In general, a real estate agent proposes Privilegedand Exclusive Brokerage Service Agreement or Exclusive Brokerage Service Agreement which can monopolize information at the beginning. In this way, first of all, the real estate agent can get the agency fee of the seller's side reliably. There is nothing ethically wrong with that. However, the way the information is handled afterwards can make a big difference.
If the real estate agent thinks of the seller, expands the sales outlet as much as possible, and shares the information with other real estate agents, the seller's desired price will be broader and the information will be communicated to those who are considering purchasing. Information is provided directly to the real estate agents, and by registering with REINS, strictly speaking, real estate agents throughout Japan can introduce the property. Such real estate agents are sensible and reliable.
However, the reality is that large real estate agents, in particular, have severe sales quotas, so they choose a method that can obtain both the brokerage fee of the seller and the brokerage fee of the buyer. That is the holding of information. First of all, there are cases where the prescribed REINS is not registered. Even if it is registered, there are cases where it will be registered when they receive the purchase application through their client. In addition, even the information is registered, when they receive an inquiry from another company, there are cases where false information is provided such as it's currently in a business negotiation. At the time of the response, other companies will not be able to broker the real estate.
Such inconvenient facts will not be communicated to the seller, but only if the agent finds a buyer, it is possible that a prospective purchaser has appeared. If such a method is taken by the agent, whichever comes first if another real estate company finds a buyer, or if the real estate price goes down a bit, but the agent still gets brokerage fees for both the seller and the buyer.
This is a fact and a secret that any real estate agent knows. There is nothing wrong with a real estate agent working hard to become an agent for the seller. If the agent is a company that can take the right action, you can make a request.
