There are easy ways and hard ways to do that. The hard way is to look at deed transfers; the easy way would be to ask a Realtor or Appraiser to run a query of the multi-list.

That's not quite true, Fred...if the buyer is signing an EBA (which is what it sounds like based on Bob's post) then the buyer is assuming the responsibility of paying the buyer's agent fee (in this case 3.5%) regardless of what the listing agent/seller is offering as compensation. This can absolutely make a difference in the buyer's bottom line and unless the details of the EBA are known and understood by the buyer, this can turn into a sticky situation (which is why again, I suggest Bob go over any contracts with a real estate attorney prior to signing).
