A real estate agent waited until the night before showing us some properties to send us two contracts to sign. One states that he's not a buyer's agent, he's a "non-agent facilitator". The other would, if we sign, grant him the "exclusive right to locate or procure real property" for us until the end of the year.
Question A: is he trying to screw us? Or is this sort of thing normal, or at least reasonable?
Question B: assuming this is reasonable, what's the practical difference between a facilitator and a buyer's agent? [more inside]
