Re: Real Estate commission....is it negotiable?

Hi Mikey
I don't know if you've read right through this thread, but if you do you'll see why I resurrected it.
I used www.bytheowner.com which is why I was spluttering at the thought of a buyer's...

Re: Real Estate commission....is it negotiable?

I'm not worried at all about her coming to us for commission as I know there's no way she could get it; it was just the idea of it that had me spluttering in disbelief! :ohmy: The sale of our house...

I'm resurrecting this thread (well, I did start it, didn't I) because I learned something yesterday which astonishes me.
If you've read this thread, and the other one on MBTTUK about selling my...

Re: Real Estate commission....is it negotiable?

This FSBO did entertain one of the local realtors because neither of us is beyond such pettyness.......this is a small town where it really is best to try to get along with everyone. ;)

Re: Real Estate commission....is it negotiable?

Please see my reply to Outontheboat; as you have attached your reply to a much earlier post, it would appear you and he have both misunderstood. I obviously had not made this clear in yesterday's...

Re: Real Estate commission....is it negotiable?

I think you misunderstand.......or maybe I didn't explain. The real estate agent has NOT bought my house. The offer has come from a couple who drove by and saw the BytheOwner sign on the front...

Re: Real Estate commission....is it negotiable?

Re: Real Estate commission....is it negotiable?
