realtors make you sign 3-6 month contracts these days prohibiting you from doing precisely this. You are required to pay them commission on any house you buy in the period, even if they didnt show it to you .Next time you find a house you like, maybe just make an offer directly through the listing agent. Just because the other realtor is selling your house doesn't mean you have to give them the next slice of pie. Especially if they tend to drag foot. Fuck'm! *You can sign an agreement with the listing agent allowing them to represent both parties as far as the presentation and acceptance of offers goes.
