Asked by David, Tennessee • Sat May 3, 2008
agent. (nothing signed) I spoke to friend who is RE lawyer, she suggested we ask our agent about a house swap. All parties benefit. We could move in so much quicker, seller has 150K less on his books, and agent gets 2 guaranteed sales. I spoke with our agent and he has never heard of this but is willing to research and make offer for us. Further, we need to negotiate with the seller/builder some additional features and acreage. Can I request my agent draw up papers and have the lawyer look them over first for hourly rate? Should I offer the agent a % of sale and get the lawyer who has experience with this to present offer? We have only asked agent to show us this one house one time. I donâ€™t mean he doesnâ€™t deserve commission, just that we have not been wagging him all over the country wasting gas. I really donâ€™t want to step on any of their toes; I just want to do what is best for my family
