Asked by Kristin Elliott, Atlanta, GA • Thu Sep 6, 2007
Last weekend I looked at several homes with a realestate agent. I have not signed an agreement with him. I found the homes myself, I even entered the homes the first time on my own. I then called him to have him show me as well. Am I required to have him represent me with those homes?
Do I have to be represented by an agent to purchase a home that is under contract with a realestate agency? Can I not represent myself and save that money on a lower home price?
Also, this real estate agent brought me to a model home of which homes I had already seen on my own and found myself, now the builder said that he must pay the real estate agent 3% commission even if we don't have him represent us during the buying process. Is this correct?
I am very frustrated and don't see the benefit of paying someone $5400 for work he didn't really do.
