Should I pay buyer's realtor commission or??? Unusual situationI had my house listed with a realtor until Dec 31st of 2013. We are planning on listing with another realtor in the spring. My neighbors asked if we were still planning to sell and we said yes. They asked if their parents could take a look at it since they were interested in buying. We said yes and they toured the house over the weekend. We exchanged info and they said they would be in touch. Today I received a call from their realtor (who wasn't with them during the showing) and stated she expected to be paid her commission. I said I would be hiring a real estate attorney on my end. I didn't say that I would or wouldn't pay her commission, I stated that I would have to speak with an attorney first. I have no contract with her or any other realtor. Am I wrong to speak with my neighbor to see if they would have an issue in dealing solely with an attorney? I understand they may want or need their hand held by the agent. There's also a chance that they wouldn't have an issue with dealing with the attorney. I feel as though I'm being pushed to pay commission to an agent that played no part in my neighbors having viewed my house. Appreciate any input you may have.
