So I have been marketing my wholesale deal on Zillow, craigslist, etc. and I was just contacted by a real estate agent saying that they have a buyer interested in the property. I just wanted to know how and if this would change the deal in any way? The agent is asking for a commission which I understand he needs to make money someway and if I still walk away with a profit I would be ok with that. I just don't know if the agent is going to make a big deal about it being a wholesale or not. Thanks for any advice!
Also, am I able to negotiate with the agent on what percent his commission will be or is it stuck at the normal 3%?
Tell him that you generally don't work with buyer's agents. So what he gets paid is between him and his buyer.
