  • I mean if they are going above and beyond for you...then sure a nice lil card...but thats where I would draw the line, I mean you are paying them and its buisness, BUT again, above and beyond deserves a little hand written card.

  • I've never done that. I figured they are making money, but in this economy that could very well not be the case. I think its sounds like a very sweet and kind thing to do.

  • They are making a profit either way thanks to you. No need to go beyond that.

  • I get a strong felling that the widow that is selling this house is taking a loss and know that she is moving into a income based housing for seniors... I believe that when she lost her husband that the house became to much work for her and extremely lonely... it is a seven bedroom house and shows signs (small ones) that work is being overlooked. Everyone else involved is differently making out on the deal but I don't believe she is and thats why I want so do a small ty.

  • There's never a reason not to be kind. Send her a note wishing her well.

  • The seller is making a commission. But a nice card or letter on how happy you were with their services is something they can post on their office bulletin board to show other prospective clients. Nothing wrong with that!

  • That's very nice of you, but wait till you live in the house first. You might find something that's unexpected and regret being so nice.
