Do I have to sign another commission agreement with buyer if I show different property?

I'm going to show an off market property to a buyer, he signed agreement that will pay 2% if we made deal on that property and I will get another 2% from seller, but now I might also show him another property, do I have to sign another agreement, as it's different address? I mean do I have to each agreement to each property I show to make sure buyer will pay 2%.? Thanks! Lily

It would depend what the contract says. If there's a portion that applies to the property you showed your buyers then yes, you're going to have to sign another agreement. If the contract says they agree to pay commission to you regardless of a specific address (but up until a certain date), then you should be ok. My suggestion is to just have them sign another one so everything is clarified.

Lily....You can also do this with an amendment to your existing agreement. But, by all means to protect yourself and to keep it very clear with the buyer as well.
