Website for recording/registering real estate buyer/agency agreements or contracts

Abstract

Currently there is no one source of electronic database information, no internet website dedicated for buyer/agency information of buyers and agents/brokers representing them. This innovative invention will enable an online electronic database for all buyers in the real estate market holding or engaged in exclusive buyer/agency relationship with real estate firms/brokers. At this website, real estate agents/brokers will be able to input new buyer information and identification at any time, to record, verify, update, terminate, (if mutually necessary,) and renew existing buyer/agency contract. The website will automatically indicate, to a verifying agent/broker, if a buyer he/she intends to represent has an existing un-expired or expired buyer/agency agreement with another brokerage/broker.
