Tony, I've done exactly that numerous times and have never won that battle. Any tips? SPS even asked me to do an addendum to the listing noting a max of 6% commission.

In my previous employment in a short sale department  we would consider those low value properties and approve a flat fee instead of a commission.  Usually around $3,500.00. In the future, if you have a similar short sale, demand a flat fee instead of a commission. have the seller complete what ever listing form you have in your state to agree to a flat fee and submit that with your offer

Comment by Kimberly S. Ruley on May 9, 2017 at 11:27am

Ok thanks all! I will wait for the underwriter's response and then move on. It's just such a low dollar sale (under $40,000) that I don't like to sell myself short

Comment by Tony Morales on May 9, 2017 at 11:25am

So is it similar to a Transaction coordinator or office administration fee? which here in Calif ranges from $300-450. if so then it may apply on standard sales but not on short sale  be thankful that the other short sales you did not not have you remove it

Comment by Thom Colby CA Brkr 888-391-5245 on May 9, 2017 at 11:25am

That used to be a practice here in CA but was ruled to not be allowed as it is truly "extra commission".  If it were me, I would drop the Broker Fee and be thankful they are allowing you to receive both sides of the commission.

Comment by Kimberly S. Ruley on May 9, 2017 at 11:18am

In my market, the broker fee is common. It is an additional fee charge to a  buyer or seller for the coordination and legwork that's done once we go under contract on a  home. In this situation, I am a dual agent representing both sides and wonder if that's why it is an issue. I've done many short sales and have never seen a bank ask for it to be removed.

Kimberly S. Ruley - what EXACTLY is the "Broker Fee" for?

Comment by Brett Goldsmith on May 9, 2017 at 10:44am

@kimberly, they consider that commission. They don't want to see brokers getting more money than what they allow. Any servicer who pays attention to the buyer side likely would deny it.

Comment by Tony Morales on May 9, 2017 at 10:40am

Kimberly, I don't understand the issue.  Is the listing agent splitting their commission with you?  Are you charging the buyer a separate fee above what the listing agent is giving you?  and what would that fee be for anyway?

Comment by Kimberly S. Ruley on May 9, 2017 at 10:33am

Greetings! I have 2 short sales with SPS. I represent the buyer also and charge them a broker fee on line 704 of the HUD. SPS is telling me to remove it because according to their guidelines, commission caps at 6%. I am asking for it to be reviewed again because it's not coming out of the lender's pocket, only the buyer. Has anyone had this issue? It makes absolutely no sense to me. I've never had this issue with other lenders.
