We have a first class beggar in the house folks. One without an ounce of dignity or self-respect.  I wonder if they are being "coached" to act in this manner. Is this the newest Guru Party coaching technique?

I may have just given "the look" and walked away. Some questions do not deserve an answer or reason why, especially with a short sale. The co broke fee is posted in MLS for all to see before they show the home, the time to negotiate it is before they show it, not when they are about to close.

If an MLS listing, refer to the MLS listing for co-operating brokerage commission and, if applicable, any buyer representation agreement or buyer customer service agreement.  If an exclusive listing, refer to the buyer representation agreement or buyer customer service agreement and, if applicable, to any agreement between the listing brokerage and selling brokerage.

Oh for pete's sake - give it up already I'd be telling them. I not too long ago had an agent call me 6 months after a transaction closed. She says - oh I was the one who referred those folks to you. Huh your name never came up or even the mention of a referral came up once with those folks?  If you really wanted to refer the clients you should have sent me a referral or at the very least called me! Ridiculous.

Don't know where agents get the idea that they can even ask that question. The % was posted in MLS. If they want more, they can ask their buyer.

"It is only now in this icy life that I bend my knee and bow..."

Such thought comes to my mind when I consider where the origin of this suggestion emanates.

Instead of making your listing uncompetitive by imposing the deferred compensation onto their buyer, they choose to shine the light on a perceived transgression.

And in your heart was found the words, 'Away with you wretched agent."

Seriously.

What was the price point and the offered compensation?
