How much you are renting it ? My range is $1200- $1550. I have no pets and I wanted a clean and safe neighborhood. My kids all are in University and we all will keep your property really clean and like a home. I am willing to move in by end of October 2012. It would be nice if you tell me if your interested to rent that house.

Thank you
Regards Maria :)

Dear Sanjlk,
I understand your concern. It is a normal clause in the contract that should you sell the home to the tenant, that the REALTOR would be due a commission. Why? It is known as "procuring cause", which means the person is buying the home as a result of the marketing and listing of that home through that agent. In other words without that agent not only would you not have rented to the people, but they wouldn't have ever seen the home and ultimately end up buying it. 6% is high; however, if you arleady signed for 6%, then you'd be obligated to that fee. I put 3% for my rental listings who later end up in a purchase. You can try to negotiate it down to that figure since 6% is normally split between buyer and seller side. In this case your agent would be representing you still in the purchase and 3% should be more than enough. Try to talk with him or her and ask for an addendum changing it from 6% to the new figure you both agree upon.
Good Luck.
