I"m pretty angry agents, I have to admit. I have awesome clients who have been nothing but perfect from day 1. Qualified, nothing to sell, ready to move immediately.
So I call a local FSBO who says " We will not come off our price at all". I say ok and tell them about my commission. They say they will discuss it and call me back to let me know if I can show. They did so and said all was a go. Got there with a one time showing agreement. Only one party present and signed. So buyers looked, fell in love with the house and offer is to be presented.
Other party says they never agreed to my commission and that they will not pay it? I had to go to the Buyer and tell him that since we are under buyers agency and after working with them for over a month, I deserve my share. Buyer is completely in agreeance and not happy with the situation. But when my commission is factored in, they will be overpriced for the neighborhood and have no equity in the home.
Have any of you ever had to ask your Buyer to pay your commission? That is undoubtedly the most uncomfortable conversation I've ever had and I'm so angry with these sellers I"m shaking. Turns out this isnt' the first time this has happened. They are nickel and diming to death, are retired and have money so this whole thing is over my commission instead of moving to be with their grandkids. Good Godly Christian folks HA! I guess being with your kids isn't as important as a few thousand dollars....all this for a 180K home...
What to do?
