My question involves real estate located in the State of: TX
We are under contract to purchase a home. Not happy with our realtor.
We signed a buyers representation agreement that expired Aug 2 with a 120 day protection period that is nullified if I switch to a different broker (as opposed to representing myself in a transaction).
I can save tens of thousands of dollars if I switch to one of these ďbare bonesĒ brokerage firms that will give me 2% back of the buyers commission.
So, assuming I can get the sellers to agree to void the contract AND accept a new contract with the same terms with the ďbare bonesĒ brokerage group, could my realtor have a valid claim against me should he choose to sue?
The way I understand it, our buyers agreement with him expired and he is not entitled to receive the commission if I purchase a home after the expiration date if I use a different brokerage company.
I know itís a mean thing to do but realtors are leaches and most arenít worth the crazy commissions especially on expensive homes.
