Advice is sought about selling an IP. I've asked four REAs to give me an idea of the likely sale price and their costs. The sale prices cited are similar and more or less as expected. An agreement with an agent has not been signed, still looking for the best deal. One agent said that he has a customer who is interested and wants to look at the IP. This could be just a ploy to have me sign with the agent. However, it may not be. If the agent can get a sale in my price range of high 700s then it is attractive and I may accept it. No advertising, no OFI, quick and simple. The question of the agent's fee has not arisen. This fee is usually north of 2%. However, with virtually no time or effort involved it seems to me that something lower is indicated. There is no s. 32 yet. Is it possible to have an option to buy signed before the s. 32 is prepared, and if so, what sort of deposit and agent fee should be paid? TIA.
