We are meeting with real estate agent tomorrow and hoping for some input and advice before then...
We made an offer on a piece of property and since we are willing to use the listing agent (sellers agent) as our agent (buyers agent) we included in our offer this wording as I have seen Dean mention and others too:
"because we are not bringing in a Realitor on our end you could represent both the sellers and the buyers. With that in mind we would like 1% back from you at closing. "
Our Realitor informed us today that this is illegal in Oregon...calling around and trying to find out reason I was told we can't share in her commission (only licensed people can do that)...is this asking for a share of her commission or not?
What do you know about this...and what can we do to gain a benefit as buyers from using the same agent by using a different language or technique if this is truly illegal? Or maybe there is just a different way to word the offer?
Thanks you so much.
Real and Chere
