Your new broker and your former broker at KW need to get involved. Nobody online can help you with your situation.

Yes, brokers all over the U.S. can pay a referral fee from brokerage to brokerage. Referral fee are typically not paid on rentals/leases unless the price is about 4k or above. But, they can be paid if you have someone looking to rent out their unit. Take a look at a company like Park Place Realty Network they can refer it out for you and pay you back the referral fee and handle everything. ... more

I don't understand why no one can ever give intelligent answers that pertain to the question. If you don't know the answer, or don't want to answer, or don't have an intelligent answer, be respectful and don't respond at all and move on.

Now to answer your question completely.......
The amount you receive and when you receive it determine when you must file. Generally, you must file Form 8300 within 15 days after receiving a payment. If the Form 8300 due date (the 15th or last day you can timely file the form) falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, it is delayed until the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday.

In the event of more than one payment.......
In some transactions, the buyer may arrange to pay you in cash installment payments. If the first payment is more than $10,000, you must file Form 8300
within 15 days. If the first payment is not more than $10,000, you must add the first payment and any later payments made within 1 year of the first payment. When the total cash payments are more than $10,000, you must file Form 8300 within 15 days.

With all that being said, the answer to your question is (B) Must report the event to the IRS within 15 days after receiving more than $10,000 in cash for a single transaction.

I do not believe you have to be a member of the Board of Realtors to have MLS access. You must, however sign up with the MFR MLS.
I have included a web reference that takes you to the page for MLS sign-up and where you will find the answers to your questions regarding this topic.
Best of luck!

That was back in 2008. With the increase in renters vs owners as an urban trend, Orlando should be similar to Miami and the rest of the State of Florid for that matter. When listing a property available for rent, the listing agreement commission is typically set at 10% of the gross lease amount or the equivalent of a single month's rent. Therefore, the buyer/renter agent gets the 5% or 1/2 month availing a ready, willing and able tenant. Then, there's the "hand off" referral - an agent supplies a qualified applicant and either the listing agent or apartment leasing office does the rest. This commission is reduced further to 2.5% of the gross lease or 1/4 of a month. Finally, a buyer/renter agent can a rebate/discount commission whereby the renter's agent takes an agreed upon percentage or portion of a single month's rent AND negotiates a discount of the tenant's first month rent. An example of the renter discount or new tenant rebate method used by RentCurz realtors can be explained at ... more

Ramon Morales answered:
There are some...interesting...answers below, but the simple fact of the matter is that the broker charges you monthly for hanging your license with them and giving you the ability to do business. True, there are also brokers which may not charge you a thing, but they also take a larger cut of your commission. The amount they charge usually is for office maintenance, supplies, e&o insurance, etc. Common practice...there are very few, if any, agents, here that don't pay a monthly and/or a cut out of their commission. Everybody pays somehow.

I'm with a great agency...I control my hours, I pay a small monthly, and keep 100% commissions, minus a transaction fee. It works for me, but its all about finding something that works for you.

Hi Mark, After struggling to find the Q&A the first time after this change was implemented I wouldn't have been the first person to agree with you. However, having using it now many times since the change, I would have to agree with Annette. I think the new format greatly enhances the outcome of the Q&A experience for all of us. ... more

Same problem here in Cape Coral. I personally think numerous consumers sought out different sources of information due to the ridiculous amount of spam on Trulia.
