Do I have to pay a commisssion to a Buyers agent who was only retained for the negotiation to purchaMy potential buyer did not have an agent when he viewed the property and only retained an agent to negotiate the sale. Do I still have to pay a commisson to the buyers agent? The agent did not bring me a client and in essence i would be paying the buyer to have someone negotiate. The buyer no the agent were upfront about this. the listing does say brokers welcome, but i thought the commission was based on bringing in the client.
