Asked by Tripel, New York, NY • Mon Apr 21, 2008
I'm sure this question will be heated, but I am in a quandray about my current NYC apt hunt. Three years ago I found a broker and he helped me get the current rental -- showed me just one other place before I signed this lease and he of course made the commission at the time. Now I'm looking into buying and have spent a lot of time on this site doing my own research. I talked to my broker to see what he could show me and we went out and looked at 3 apts one afternoon, two of which were awful and one was great, but I had seen it previously on Trulia. It ultimately proved too much for me and went to another buyer, but I can't help but think had I contacted the seller myself I could've offered the 3 points (or whater the buyer's broker's cut is), and shaved close to 100k off the price. Now, I want to do the right thing, but that kind of cut is awfully steep for basically an afternoon's work. So what is the obligation, and with the detail on this site, do I need a broker to buy?
