Buyers agent to use some of their commision for repairs?Hello, I am not using a buyers agent to purchase a home so the sellers agent will keep the full 6 - 7 % of the commision. She is an owner / agent so does not work for one of the big companies and therefore does not have to pay commision to someone else. The older owner who is selling needs as much of the proceeds as possible to settle mortgages etc. Limited essential repair costs will be about 1.5% of the sale price to address problems found during the inspection. Is it reasonable to expect the sellers agent to pay for these repairs still leaving them with 4.5 to 5.5 % commision? The sellers agent says the seller has no money to pay for the repairs. I appreciate your feedback and comments. Thank you.
