When is a realtor entitled for a commission?Our Realtor friend has been helping us find a house. But unfortunately because of lack of funds, we cannot outbid the homes for sale in the area we chose. Then one day my sister just trying to help us look for a home, saw a development and suggested that we go check it out. The day we went there was just a day to see if maybe there is something for us... Little we know that, that day would change our lives, the builder help us plan everything that would fit our budget, to make the story short we were given a chance to have a house, that we like and can afford. Unfortunately, our Realtor friend wasn't with us, and the seller requires that your agent should be with you hat the time of the sale. It wasn't planned. We wanted the house so bad ... Now our realtor friend wants us to tell the agent who from the new developement that if we they wont give him his commission we would back out with the deal. All papers are signed, but our friend wants his commission. We didnt mean to hurt him, my sister found the place, everything just fit like a glove with so much blessing that we our dream became a reality. What should we do? if we demand his commission, we loose everything, our friend is begging for us to help him get his commission....March 21 2011 - Orlando00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
