I have been through this many times before where tenants think they know what they want but keep changing their minds. Thank him for his time and tell him that you feel that you are not comfortable with making a decision at the current time and give him a $200 gas card as a token of appreciation. As a listing broker I can tell you that some tenant brokers get discouraged if we offer to pay them less than they feel they shoud earn, which is actually the landlords decision. You should at least offer to pay the difference in comissions between what the landlord will pay and what the minimum is in that area to tenant brokers, or offer him a bonus. He is likely uncurring costs that you would otherwise pay alot more for, and taking time to search which allows you to focus on your business.
