If Liked the condo, but not the fact my agent told a hidden comission after showing the condo??I am hunting a condo as a first time buyer, and basically knew which condo apts I wanted before meeting a real estate broker, who was referred by my friends. We met first just for coffee, and asked questions about him and procedures. I thought he is good enough, and asked him to show the condos I wanted to see. Then, after seeing the condos, I asked about the offer procedure again in hypothetical situations to prepare to-do-lists (because I don't know if I want to offer yet), he mentioned $1000 agent fee upon submitting an offer letter - which I have never heard of!! I asked other agents in area and they said they don't charge such, their commission is from the sold price only. Now, I want to work with other agents, since there is no paper/contract signed with the agent, and we spent only 2-3 days and he had access of only 2-3 condos to see. Can I switch to another agent now, and would it be OK to submit offer(s) to a condo, including the one the first agent to show to me, after I look more condos for comparison and decided it is the best one for me???
