What's a fair price to pay my Realtor if the seller won't pay the Realtor commission?I found a house on my own which is for sale by owner. The seller refuses to pay my Realtor's commission since she's under no legal obligation to do so. I too am under no legal obligation to pay my Realtor since I don't have a contract with him. However I feel like I have a moral obligation to pay him for the time he's spent with me up to this point. What's a fair percentage to offer since he didn't find the house? Should I still provide the 2.5 - 3%? What would be a fair offer if I moved forward with the buying process without his assistance? He's been with us for about a year but has only showed us about 7-8 houses which is mostly due to my pickiness and unwillingness to expand my search to new areas.August 17 2011 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
