“BBA” Buyer/Broker Agreement



The State of Virginia requires written notice about agency relationships “at the time substantive discussions begin regarding specific real estate property.” Realtors who are dedicated to practicing in accordance with the rules and regulations established by the NVAR Board of Realtors will discuss the “BBA” early in the Agent/Buyer communication.

Here are the basics about a Brokerage/Buyer Agreement – also known as a “BBA”:

  • “BBA” is a standard operating procedure in Virginia and required by all Brokerages.  
  • “BBA” formalizes the business relationship between a Buyer and their Agent. It establishes loyalty to one another during the search for and purchase of real estate.
  • “BBA” has a beginning and end date. Those dates are negotiable.
  • “BBA” is more of an “engagement” than a “marriage”. With written notice, a Buyer can terminate a BBA with little fanfare or drama if they decide to “go in a different direction”. 
  • “BBA” protects a Buyer. Purchasing real estate is an important financial decision. As an “unrepresented party”, a Buyer takes a risk. Buyers deserve and need an advocate working in their best interest during the home search period, inspections, negotiations, and closing.
