Kristen, congratulations on the offer. It may be a little difficult to part with the 3% in this transaction, so maybe you can negotiate with the buyers on covering the fee for the agent. Please understand the agent has worked on the buyers behalf and it is customary for the agent to be paid for his/her services. To sell a product, whether a home or anything else, for this amount of money without having to pay a sales fee, is not very typical. I would be happy to provide some advice if needed. The help of a professional real estate agent can go a long way. Good luck with your decision.
