I bought my sister out AND have to pay Realtor? My sister and I inherited my parents' house when they died. My intention was to buy my sister out, however, she wanted to try and get the most money out of selling the house so as Executor if my parent's will, she listed the house with a Realtor. I had the first right of refusal which I exercised when she received a contract bid recently. I have received a refinance approval through a lender.( Refinancing because I already own 50% of the property.) I am now being told that my sister and I have to pay the Realtor who listed the property her 5% commission which means, I pay $8K and my sister pays another $8K. Why am I paying a Realtor commission on a house she didn't sell to me? And that I already own 50% of and have been living in with my family?March 19 2013 - Naperville00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
