Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
If your management contract states that you have to pay the 7%, then you are just stuck there and if you refused, they could sue you for breach and would win.
And I agree that 7% for basically doing nothing is a bad deal for you.. So I might suggest working something out where you either increase the price to include the realtor commission or you negotiate the commission down with the realtor or otherwise refuse to sell and see if the tenant will wait 6 months to buy.
If the realtor won't negotiate the commission down, then they get nothing if you don't sell..
