Cana dual agent (works for both the buyer and seller) point out to the buyer he or she supposedly represents a negative characteristic of the listed property? For example, that the seller told the agent the AC is old and inefficient which results in high utility bills? In a single agent, dual-agency situation, the agent attempts to serve buyer and seller, both of whom have a competing interest to get the best terms possible. Obviously that conflict can’t be reconciled, so Arizona’s solution is as illogical as it is unfair – the dual agent can’t say anything that would favor one side. Only if that negative characteristic is so serious that it is considered a material fact (which is subjective), must it be disclosed. The result is you will not get told what you need to know.
