Default Find me a House and I will pay you a finder's fee.

Before all the real estate agents get excited let me be clear on one thing: I am NOT interested with any property listed on MLS. I have already committed to a business associate of mine that she will continue to have the exclusive with MLS listings.

I would like to buy a Quad (4 units) in the Fourth Ward or Dilworth. They are hard to come by as I only have found one in 7 months of looking.

So, if you know someone that might be interested in selling to me directly and not using the services of MLS I will pay you an agreed upon finder's fee if I should buy the property.

Time is of the essence as I need to close on this property by April 2009.


TIA

Pretty sure you will not find a quad in 4th Ward. Most units there are either houses, apartments, single condos, or townhouses.

They exist. Was hours away from a contract 5 weeks ago on a quad on e/w(?) 7th street . Seller thought she was dealing with a novice. I called her bluff and had to walk away from it.
After seeing this house I fell in love with the 4th ward.

Listen to what this bimbo wanted me to do. She wanted me to put up $5000 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit to go into "offer to purchase". Cost of inspection was $550. So IF I found a glaring defect I'm out the $5000! For ANY reason what-so-ever. And the $550.

Win win for her and not quite sure how I can change my method after so many years of doing this biz.

Remember it's illegal to pay a fee to an unlicensed real estate agent .

I'm sorry; let me rephrase that...it's illegal to pay a finder's fee or referral fee to anyone in a real estate transaction that is not a licensed real estate agent.

And you probably also believe that you can't J walk either because it's illegal! But how many people do you see doing it ? !!!

How John Q. Citizen chooses to spend his money is nobody's business - he could give someone like me money all day long if he wants to (and gee John, here's hoping you're feeling generous!!)

True. But, he just cannot call it a "finders fee" and just cannot "advertise" it...
