Canadian Real Estate/selling without an agent

Question
I am selling my house without an agent.
If I get an offer from someone who has signed a contract with an agent, who pays the agent.
The ad was in the paper and they came on there own.

Answer
Hi Rebecca,
If a Buyer is working with a Real Estate Agent and they have a Buyer Agency in place. The Agent is entitled to Commission. Usually 2.5% of the selling price. Ask the Buyer to wait until the Buyer Agency Agreement expires or work in 2.5% for the Agent involved or you can ask the Buyer to talk to his or her Agent for instructions?
I hope this helps.

Thanks, Derek
