Jay, Check your agreement and let your agent know about the home you found. Your agent can talk to this seller and might be able to get the seller to pay his/her commission. A good agent will easily be able to show how valuable their expertise is, and hopefully the seller will see the value in having your agent represent you as a client, and assist the seller as a customer to get everyone to the closing table. If your agent represents you, they will fight to get you the deal, at, or below, market value.
I am in Georgia where customarily, the seller pays the real estate commission. However, everything is negotiable. Hope that helps and Good Luck.... more

Norwich's Bacchus Hospital is well knowns for excellent surgery care. Westerly Hospital in RI is going through some changes right now but has been a favorite for it's personalized care and service.

I was wondering if you were able to find what you needed on the school system in the Mystic area. I would love to talk with you about moving to this area or any of the surrounding areas. I am a licensed reator working in the Mystic area and would love to show you homes. It does not cost you anything to work with your own agent. Call me when you have a moment and I will be glad to help you.
