We are selling our house in Tennessee and currently live in Virginia. We are in contact with a couple of realtors - no signed contract yet. In the mean time, we have been contacted by a person who in interested in the house but has not yet seen it. We told one of the realtors and she was very negative about it and said she would not reduce her commission of 6% since she would have to work both sides, the seller and buyer.

Is this the way realtors normally handle this situation, to not reduce the commission?

How'd this person find out about your property . . . . it's not even listed yet ?

If this person is so interested, why not sell it directly yourself, and save the whole Commission ?

If you've "been in contact with a couple realtors"; but haven't listed the property yet, then tell them that you're listing it with the one who'll cut the Commission by 1 or 2% IF you find a bonafide Qualified, Ready, and Willing Buyer (completely independent of the Broker's efforts).

The woodwork must be loaded with curious and interested people who are always waiting for soon-to-be-listed property to come available . . . . hopefully yours is real !

The house is in an over 55 community and there are no other houses for sale. An old neighbor emailed us saying a friend of theirs was looking to buy in our neighborhood.

We live 12 hours away so we have no way to show this lady the house - it is currently being rented. This lady might not even like the house.

Anyway, thanks for your response.
