We are not the expert on legal matter. As a matter of fact, there are attorneys at every title company. That's the answer to you legal question. The fact that you have contacted 3 different title companies and all said the same thing means you do need to show proof. ... more

It doesn't work this way. You need to understand when a realtor takes a listing from the seller / owner, the owner decides at that time how much the listing realtor gets and how much the buyers realtor gets. The percentages are written in the listing contract. When your realtor (buyers realtor) submits an offer on a home you want, your realtor will either accept the percentage from the seller OR will ask you (the buyer) to pay the difference between what the seller is offering and what your realtor feels he/she should be paid. Most realtors will accept the stated percentage that the seller is offering. Beware - some realtors are greedy and expect buyers to pay the difference. Do NOT use these greedy agents. Make sure you discuss this up front.because I have seen questions from buyers stating their agent asked them to pay the commission difference AFTER the offer was submitted. This is pure greed.

Back to your question - There is NO guarantee the listing agent will get a qualified buyer. The majority of the time, the buyer has their own realtor. Let's say for example the seller offered 5% to their listing agent if they get a qualified buyer to submit an offer. This is a double ended transaction. The seller's realtor will keep their mouth shut and will never tell you how much or what percent commission they are receiving. So there is no way you will know whether the seller's agent is receiving 3%, 4%, 5% or even 6%. Agents are real good at zipping their lip. All they care about is getting the house sold for the most money and quickly so they can get paid. If you are not working with your own buyers realtor, a listing agent can easily manipulate the comparables and show you only homes that prove the asking price is legit. It may not be. Agents are also experts at manipulating the MLS system to benefit them. Having your own realtor means they are working for you - not the seller.

Your only recourse is to review all the comps and offer a fair and realistic price for the home.

Hi Ebosales2,

You can do a conventional loan with 3 to 5% down BUT if your mid score is 639, you're gonna want to go with an FHA loan because the rate will be lower and the monthly Mortgage Insurance on an FHA loan will be less than the Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) on a conventional loan. That means you're overall mortgage payment will be lower.

If you have some time we can work on raising your scores to make a conventional loan the better option if not, FHA is the way to go.
