SCR130 Exclusive Right to Buy Buyer Agency Agreement ERTB BAA

As of today (3/20/23) in order to use the updated SCR130, you will write in your compensation either as a dollar amount (fill in the blank) or as a percentage of the purchase price (fill in the blank).

Be very careful to never say that you work for free when you do not work for free. The NAR code of ethics prohibits this. The SC license law prohibits this. Other laws also prohibit this.

You have put in many hours of study and effort as well as money to obtain your real estate license and your REALTOR® membership and your expertise as a buyer’s agent.

Buyer’s agents bring value to the transaction for buyer clients.

Be proud of this and market your value, not as "free" but as the value you bring to the transaction.

Forms videos from SCR are linked below. SCR can do forms training and ethics training and legal training for your brokerage and or your association as schedules permit and presentation on forms or ethics or the law can be presented either live or on Zoom..
