FSBO question - the prospective buyer has an agent
First, thanks to everyone who responded to an earlier FSBO question - we worked really hard to get our house ready following forum advice, (stripping wallpaper etc), and had a showing tonight to a couple who seem very interested. The issue is that they have a contract with a local realtor who wanted to come with them tonight when they looked at our house. I suggested they come alone first, and if after seeing it, they were interested in making an offer, then we'd talk about the agent's involvement.
They seem pretty interested, and asked if they could bring him over for another showing. We suggested they take a good look at their contract to see if it covers their need to have him involved if the property they want was not brought to them by him. They in fact found us by driving around our neighborhood and seeing our FSBO sign in the yard. Their realtor had nothing to do with bringing us together. So are they obligated to get him in on this deal, if it comes to that? Any advice about how we should handle this?Thanks!
