I have a buyer for my property in San Antonio. We need someone to take care of the deal without typical agent fees.

Asked by Laura Ward, Albuquerque, NM Sun Nov 11, 2012

Should we use a real estate attorney, or negotiate with a real estate agent to get a flat fee, or something else? Details: this is a vacant lot with a garage on it. The buyer is the former owner of the property who is buying it back from me. This should be fairly simple. Ideas? Thank you.

All transaction fees are negotiable. Why don't you contact the agent of your choice to start the process.

Your choice to use an attorney or a Realtor to finalize the negotiated contract. I would be happy to help - just give me a call -- by the way, I miss ABQ -- was honored to serve as the Executive Officer to the Kirtland Wing Commander several years ago. Great place to live, eat and ski.

Hi Laura,
You're right, this should be fairly simple.
If you'd like to give me a call I'd be glad to review the details and we could work something out for a flat fee.

Best of luck!

As far as agent fees we get 3% of the sales price. Is that amount too much? Even though it seems to be a fairly easy deal, we still need to draw up the contracts for you. Hiring an attorney Would be more then that. Our fees are handled at closing and the title company takes care of that. I'd be happy to help you

Yes, 3% is too much considering there will be no listing, showing, and negotiating. The 3% normally involves all of that, so yes, I would expect a discount.
