"Is he asking too much" is a relative question. Paul S gave a very typical overview.
Relative to the brokeage fee....How long has the broker had the listing? How many qualified prospects has he brought you? Is this current prospect a high quality/high credit tenant that will pay on time? Give you no problems as a tenant?
A broker's fee is a function of his time, expertise, diligence, quality of work etc. Besides, the fee paid should already be spelled out in the listing agreement.
